Cloverfield

Greetings, Cloverfield is a movie that was made by the creators of the popular TV series Lost in 2008. I have watched it recently knowing that the storyline wasn't a particularly original one, but wanted to see it due to the idea of it being filmed through a camera. I believe that viewing it through the camera was a good idea, although I did take a while to adjust to it. The first fifteen minutes of the movie were pretty boring and would have been better if some unnecessary clips were taken out, the story is set in New York were a monster attacks the city. This isn't a particularly original idea as it has been done before for example King Kong, but the characters weren't that memorable and had few distinguishing features to interest me. It was not easy to follow the characters as they kept dying every twenty odd minutes. The special features were great and for this reason and the camera I liked the movie, otherwise I would have switched it off. Also one of the worst endings I had ever seen, even if the characters weren't standing out it was a ridiculous ending making the whole event of Rob and the rest of his friends save his girlfriend pointless. It is an okay movie and is alright if you want to see a the destruction of New York or simply some good special effects such as half of New York being attacked by a monster. The adventures of Fletch and Roman episode 7 series 2 is up in the Warehouse.
