Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Yawn. There’s nothing crushingly bad about Netflix’s The Cloverfield Paradox but the fact Paramount chose to dump it to the streaming service should tell you all you need to know about how much faith they had in the finished film. And they were right. This second Cloverfield sequel (nominal sequel at least) isn’t a patch on 10 Cloverfield Lane and is a hot mess of a film that has no idea what it is or wants to be. It drags, things happen, then it ends. Watch for curiosity but little else.
Best Bit: The FX are good
Buy, Stream, Avoid: Stream
