Storyline

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 Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

Although this movie takes place in 2028, and the prior films took place way before, J.J. Abrams said that he has a plan on how all the Cloverfield movies (and future ones) will be tied together. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Mundy: I don't know the rules, now. Do you think there's any chance it might grow back?
Acosta: I don't know. I don't know what to believe anymore.

Reminder: this title is part of something bigger (I'm just a geek from Hungary, not a publicist.)
5 April 2018 | by tuszadorjanSee all my reviews

Hi there,

I strongly disagree with all the ratings below 5. People are also saying it is not even connected to the other movies. Which is also not true. You don't even have to force your imagination to see how...

I'm also unsure what people expect from low budget sci-fi movies, but for me all the 3 movies so far delivered a unique experience. And they are coherent, no matter what others say. I don't need my schools to get this. :P

This is exactly the title you should ONLY watch, once you watched the previous two before. In my opinion, that is how it delivers the full experience and makes you want a series made out of this. I love how each of the titles put something additional into the bigger picture. It is a pure sci - fi experience, and it is ways less bullshit than Annihilation was with Natalie Portman. I'm saying this because people were praising that movie for it's pure sci - fi feeling and said all the unexplained bs there is part of the experience. Now here we have way less bullshit happening, with some cool humor also hidden between the 'dramatic' scenes, and people keep criticizing it for the same reasons they were praising Annihilation.

Watch it for you yourself, consider the fact it is part of something, not a standalone. And just enjoy. If they keep continuing with the same steps by bringing out more like this in this universe, I'll be the most happy sci - fi geek in the world. :)

Yo!
