I heard nothing but bad things, everyone I know slammed it and every review I read online crapped all over it so unsurprisingly I went in prepared for the worst.
Paradox looks the part, then again it should for 26 million dollars. The cast do a great job including the always excellent Chris O'Dowd and the movie has an element of mystery that kept me interested.
How are the three movies connected? I wondered, surely they must be right?
Well after watching the film, having a good think and even googling fan theories I can confidently say I mostly get it but simply don't like it. It is far easier to connect 1 & 3 than 2 & 3, someone might have to explain that to me in a bit more depth.
I understand that the movie is science fiction but Paradox has too much pseudo science for me and left too many things unexplained and I'm not even talking the connection stuff.
I don't think this is a bad film I just think that the three Cloverfield movies are broken jigsaw pieces that the creators are trying to awkwardly force together and it just isn't working.
I'd like to see one more, one final Cloverfield movie that competently explains everything. If that were done then it would add so much to this and Cloverfield Lane.
Alas won't hold my breath, I predict a final movie as baffling as this one which will not leave fans with the answers they seek.
I'd say nice try, but I'd be lying.
Looks decent enough
Couple of bits are scientifically bafflingly inaccurate
The whole franchise is just a poorly made mish mash of ideas
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
Whatever that generated food was, I don't want it
Identical twins and rocky road sounds both a sexy and terrifying sexual fantasy
