Before the movie's release, it was confirmed to be the third installment of producer J.J. Abrams' Cloverfield series. However, it was first an original film called "God Particle", in which, during a war against Russia, a group of American astronauts find themselves at stake when they discover that Earth has disappeared and that a Russian ship is trying to make contact with them.

Characters regularly refer to an urgent power crisis on Earth. For example, Hamilton talks about how she installed an illegal power cell so that her children would have lights at night. Yet everyone on Earth is shown to be using energy at current day levels: they drive cars, have cellphones, watch broadcast television and use the internet. See more »

Crimson and "Clover", over and over...
I am almost 65 years old, and have been a fan of science-fiction all my life. I never heard of Cloverfield and did not know that it was some sort of series until I started reading some of the other reviews on this page. Having no prior knowledge of Cloverfield, I was able to approach the film without any preconceived bias and judge the movie entirely on its own merit. There are very few films that present any truly unique science-fiction idea, but this movie does succeed in blending some old ideas into a new and unique combination. I found this to be a very enjoyable science-fiction film. Although this movie had its share of scientific inaccuracies, I simply attribute them to the fact that the story takes place in an alternate universe where our scientific laws do not all necessarily hold true. This is an unusual science-fiction tale, blended with a touch of horror similar to "Event Horizon". The plot is very interesting. The acting is excellent. The special effects are great. The story is suspenseful. I found this film to be a worthwhile piece of entertainment.
