A father has a recurring dream of losing his family. His nightmare turns into reality when the planet is invaded by a force bent on destruction. Fighting for their lives, he comes to realize an unknown strength to keep them safe from harm.
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

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 »
In this film we see one character (Tam) speaking Chinese exclusively, including for critical information during an emergency. In a later scene where Tam and Schmidt speak in Chinese, Volkov cannot eavesdrop on them due to his inability to understand Chinese.
International space station crews typically speak English, with a Russian language requirement if they are flying Russian craft. It's extremely unlikely that crews would use English and Chinese in this fashion however. We are shown that at least one crew member cannot understand Chinese, so there is a high risk of miscommunication during critical operations. See more »
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.
