Trivia

During one scene, John Goodman's character is watching Pretty in Pink (1986). In that movie, Molly Ringwald's character has a hobby of making dresses. This is a subtle allusion to Mary Elizabeth Winstead's character in this movie, as she also dreams of being a seamstress. See more »

Goofs

From the main floor there is about a 3 foot staircase into the kitchen. From the kitchen there is about a 12 foot staircase to the outside doors. This makes the main floor be about 15 feet below the ground level. The whole air filtration system situation suggest a different thing. The duct opening the heroine climbs into is 6 foot above the floor. Near the end of the air duct there is an about 4 foot high "incline" that she climbs up to get into the air filtration room. The room is minimum 8 foot high. From the room there is a ladder to the hatch outside. The hatch is level with the ground and is at least 6 feet from the ceiling of the air filtration room. This suggests the main floor is 24 feet below ground, not 15. Even though all numbers are approximate, there is clearly a disconnect. See more »

Much better than the 2008 "Cloverfield" movie, this is about a gripping & intense story and raw tension rather than special effects and crushing things.
10 March 2016 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

If this is going to be an anthology or if this is going to be followed by that rumored third installment that has been recently spoiled by J.J. Abrahms, I can say that nobody doubts about the secretly marketed "10 Cloverfield Lane" is a great movie on its own. And a movie that if it were spoiled by someone here or at any review would be cruel.

Since the start it reveals to be a movie that doesn't hide an ace, but a hundred.

The pace can be a little slow at the first half only to add more and more tension, hooking the audience and introducing them into the movie like they were one of the people inside that bunker.

John Goodman will be a real trend the future days thanking its superb performance. He's so twisty, complex developed character. He and Mary Elisabeth Winstead make the movie shine alongside the story.

The story is so little, then so game-changer, with twists and turns that are smart rather than empty. It's one of that makes you guess all the time.

The ending is more of a bang than a whimper. Even when it succumbs to the action and polemic moves, it will leave you on a grim and high note, pestering for another outing if it's any good like this.

If the "Cloverfield" that started it all was about speaking without breath and CGI scares, this "10 Cloverfield Lane" is about deeper intentions, deeper tension and personal stuff that is scarier than a giant monster. While the connection to that movie is not so remarkable until the finale, this installment is so brilliant on its own, so well marketed (without ruining any twist) and so well ended that will surely please any viewer who were looking for a damn good movie. This is a scary movie like the classic ones. Don't miss it.
