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

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 »

Goofs

When Michael is driving with Molly after rescuing her, while he is texting you can see the speedometer and tachometer are both at zero although they are clearly driving at freeway speeds. See more »

Quotes

Michael: I can't get through to your home yet. The circuits are busy. That means no calls will go through.
Molly: I know what it means. My uncle's dead.
Michael: There's nothing you could've done. Molly. Molly. We're gonna find your parents. The most important thing right now is keeping you safe.

TNG Episode
5 February 2018 | by saccitygrlSee all my reviews

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.
