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

Goofs

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 »

Well that was disappointing...
5 February 2018 | by See all my reviews

There's a reason they released this movie right when the whole country would be positively drunk.

Remember that lame scene in Interstellar where the movie stops to explain wormholes with a piece of paper? Now imagine a whole movie of that.

This disappointing sidequel, though its talented cast tries their best, is jam-packed with clunky expository dialogue and unanswered questions. It's actually amazing that even with spending this much time explaining what's going on that it still makes such little sense.

Sadly, this is a movie whose marketing strategy is more surprising and inventive and than the actual film.
