Goofs

During the first dinner scene (around 33mins), there are 2 bottles of drink on the table, and 3 empty glasses. Howard opens one of the bottles and pours half into Michelle's glass. Emmett then manages to reach across the table and take the bottle (even though the bottle is out of reach and Michelle is holding her cutlery) - Emmett then half fills his glass, emptying the bottle. Despite Howard never opening the second bottle (which is still unopened on the table) and never filling his own glass; his glass is also half full a few shots later. See more »

Quotes

Howard: I know that this isn't the life that you prefer, and that it's been hard for you to come down here... but I really want us to be a happy family, you and me. The mess is all taken care of... so, I'll go get dinner started.

Powerhouse of a Film
9 March 2016 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Following 2007's found footage film 'Cloverfield', 10 Cloverfield Lane is produced from the same womb as its predecessor - but is in no way part of the same breed. Most production companies operate under the false ideology that 'bigger is better', however in this instance Paramount Pictures has opted for a smaller scale production – and it is a sensational affair.

Vastly superior to its aforementioned predecessor, 10 Cloverfield lane bears little to no resemblance of its half-brother – and this works to its advantage in more ways than one. Firstly, the frantic and scatter shot 'hand-held' found footage technique of the first installment is ditched for more precise and intimate tripod filmed scenes. This makes the film vastly more interesting and more engaging than the chaotic shaky cam that plagued Colverfield. It is almost a breath of fresh air to see a movie that is so thoughtfully filmed.

Furthermore, 10 Cloverfield Lane a story that is entirely compelling for the entirety of its runtime – at no stage does it slow down or become uninteresting, and at no stage are there any predictable moments. The dialogue is nothing short of brilliant and keeps you on edge from start to finish, also due to fantastic execution from its cast.

The true star of the film however – is John Goodman. In what may just be one of his finest performances in more recent years, Goodman keeps the audiences eyes glued to the screen and keeps you entirely engaged throughout. Cloverfield's acting wasn't at all that great – it was rather average in all honesty – but this film brings something else. Goodman puts on an absolute powerhouse of a performance, and the rest of the cast are brilliant strong as well.

Ultimately, Bolstered by an intriguing premise, brilliant performances and ever changing storyline, 10 Cloverfield Lane never becomes boring and never fails to intrigue, and is arguably one of the best Sci-Fi films of the last few years.
