In the wake of humanity's extinction, a teenage girl is raised by a robot designed to repopulate the earth. But their unique bond is threatened when an inexplicable stranger arrives with alarming news.
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

The crew's uniforms have seven thin yellow stripes, presumably to represent the seven continents (as it was in John Glenn's spacecraft, "Friendship 7"). The flags on the crew-members' sleeves identify their home countries (United Kingdom, United States, Russia, Brazil, China, Germany, and Ireland). See more »

Well, about 30 minutes in and you realize why Paramount decided to release via Netflix.
I don't think anyone who loved cloverfield will be particularly taken by this film. And to those people who felt cloverfield lane was a bait and switch, they will really feel betrayed by this film.
The acting in this film is respectable. The effects, set and the like are fine. But the dull plot is not overcome by having a single character to care about.
