In the near future, there is an energy crisis on Earth. The Cloverfield Station with a multinational crew will test the Shepard particle accelerator expecting to generate energy for all countries solving the energy problem. However, the experiment goes wrong, damages the station and opens a portal to another dimension with a parallel Earth. They also find a woman entwined with wires behind a bulkhead of the station and they learn she worked in an identical Cloverfield Station in another dimension. Now the scientists need to find a way to return to their own dimension.Written by

I put off watching this for a bit because I wasn't really sure what it was about. All of a sudden it was on Netflix as a surprise addition to the Cloverfield Saga. Admittedly I was not a huge fan of the first movie. 'Shaky camera' movies have never been my favourite. The second movie was quite good, with a fantastic performance by John Goodman. However, it had little to do with the first installment and I thought it would have been better if they had not wrapped it up with a Cloverfield ending.
This movie is the same. For the first 80% of the movie the story is quite engaging and seems like it could be a legitimate sci-fi thriller. Humans run out of resources and a team is sent into space to create a device that will provide unlimited energy. Something goes wrong and a paradox in our reality develops. Space movie advocates will appreciate the realistic aspects of space that the movie depicts. The final scenes are the only nod to Cloverfield that you really see and they seem out of place in the grand scheme of the movie.
Lots of strong acting all around and a plot that never felt boring or drawn out. Would put this on par with 10 Cloverfield Lane. If you like space movies, I feel you would enjoy this addition to the series.
