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

The crew's uniforms have seven thin yellow stripes, presumably to represent the 7 continents (as it was in John Glenn's spacecraft, "Friendship 7"). The flags on the crew-members' sleeves identify their home countries (U.K., U.S.A., Russia, Brazil, China, Germany and Ireland). See more »
The windows in the living quarters are on the outer edge of the spinning disk which would mean the artificial gravity created by the spin would pull in this direction as well. In the film the gravity acts towards the floor of each room and not towards the outer windows. 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.
