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

Just like Michelle (Mary Elizabeth Winstead)'s network carrier in the movie 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016), Michael (Roger Davies)'s phone carrier is "BRT". This is a shortened version of producer J.J. Abrams' production company "Bad Robot". See more »

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 »

Quotes

Jensen: [Jensen is attempting to entice Hamilton to come out of hiding by playing a video of Hamilton's doppelganger's children on a parallel Earth] Ava, don't fail them again. That is your family down there. The same kids. The same man you married. You don't know how bad it is down there. It'll only get worse. Listen to their voices, Ava. They need you. You may be willing to kill your children again. But I won't let those people down there die.

Crimson and "Clover", over and over...
11 February 2018 | by ancienttomeSee all my reviews

I am almost 65 years old, and have been a fan of science-fiction all my life. I never heard of Cloverfield and did not know that it was some sort of series until I started reading some of the other reviews on this page. Having no prior knowledge of Cloverfield, I was able to approach the film without any preconceived bias and judge the movie entirely on its own merit. There are very few films that present any truly unique science-fiction idea, but this movie does succeed in blending some old ideas into a new and unique combination. I found this to be a very enjoyable science-fiction film. Although this movie had its share of scientific inaccuracies, I simply attribute them to the fact that the story takes place in an alternate universe where our scientific laws do not all necessarily hold true. This is an unusual science-fiction tale, blended with a touch of horror similar to "Event Horizon". The plot is very interesting. The acting is excellent. The special effects are great. The story is suspenseful. I found this film to be a worthwhile piece of entertainment.
