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

Disappointing
5 February 2018 | by ShijuroSee all my reviews

Although the performances were fine, the story was a muddled mix of bad science (gravity doesn't work like that, not in any of the scenes) and sci-fi cliches, with several random mentions of the word "Cloverfield" shoe-horned in inexplicably. The film introduces several "haunted house" elements that are never explained.

There is less than a minute of content that connects this to the other Cloverfield movies, and as minor and inconsequential as the connection is, they still manage to contradict the events in the other films.

No one can watch this and find it faultless. The 10/10 "Must see!" user reviews were presumably written by publicists.
