Six months after the rage virus was inflicted on the population of Great Britain, the US Army helps to secure a small area of London for the survivors to repopulate and start again. But not everything goes according to plan.
After getting in a car accident, Michelle awakens to find herself in a mysterious bunker with two men named Howard and Emmett. Howard offers her a pair of crutches to help her remain mobile with her leg injury sustained from the car crash and tells her to "get good on those" before leaving the bunker. She has been given the information that there has been an alien attack and the outside world is poisoned. However, Howard and Emmett's intentions soon become questionable and Michelle is faced with a question: Is it better in here or out there?Written by
Howard had a radio in the bunker that he claimed had no transmissions (stating everyone was dead), yet when Michelle escapes, on her car radio she hears all about the war against fighting the aliens.
CORRECTION: *There is no evidence to suggest that Howard even tries his radio in the bunker, and also noted by another contributor - His radio is a VHF radio that would normally pick up emergency broadcasts.
However, toward the end of the film, Michelle hears a broadcast on an AM radio - Howard's radio WOULD NOT have been able to receive this signal.
In addition, Howard's motives are unclear. If he is keeping Michelle hostage, why would he tell her the radio works???* See more »
Michelle, please don't hang up. Just talk to me, okay? I can't believe you just left.

Welcome To 10 Cloverfield Lane.... Now, I wouldn't ever say that I loved this Sci-Fi/Thriller - But, I would like to say that this was certainly one of those rare films from that genre where (for a change) it appeared that some real thought had actually gone into its story-line.
Yeah. And, when it came down to playing the "is-it-or-isn't-it-a-hoax?" game with the audience - I thought that 10 Cloverfield Lane certainly did deliver a satisfying 110 minutes of entertaining diversion.
Yes. There definitely were some very disappointing and demented moments in this taut tale of apparent global Armageddon - But as the mounting suspense soon took a firm hold in the action - I chose to forgive this film for all of its unavoidable inadequacies.
My one big complaint here comes down to the miscasting of John Goodman as the "Thomas" character. To me, Goodman was just too much of a tired, old, bloated couch-potato to be at all believable in his part.
