Cloverfield follows five New Yorkers from the perspective of a hand-held video camera. The movie is exactly the length of a DV Tape and a sub-plot is established by showing bits and pieces of video previously recorded on the tape that is being recorded over. A group of friends throw a farewell party for Rob, who is leaving New York to go and work in Japan. However, as the party progresses, violent shakes and explosions herald the arrival of an unknown creature, which begins its rampage by throwing the head of the Statue of Liberty down into a street. As they go to investigate, an adventure deep into the streets of New York begins, as the friends are determined to rescue Rob's true love.Written by

When Beth and Rob are sitting under the bridge at the end of the movie, Beth has her left arm up, touching her head. This should be impossible or at least excruciatingly painful as her left shoulder was pierced by a steel bar earlier in the film. See more »
It's 6:42 AM. Beth's dad's place. He's out of town. And it's already a good day.

First of i would like to say that this is hands down the best monster movie made. Some people will say " The Host" which was a great movie, but does not compare to the suspense and terror in Cloverfield. The visual effects in this movie were absolutely stunning. Superbly acted by a mostly unknown cast added to the realty of this movie. Cloverfield definitely tops my list of movies in 2008 so far. A MIND BLOWING movie experience that must be seen.
one more note............. Don't LEAVE THE THEATER TILL AFTER THE CREDITS ROLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I warn you DON NOT LEAVE!!!!!!!!! After the long credits, a very important scene takes place that you cant miss. So sit tight and wait. You wont be disappointed.
