Goofs

Howard had a radio in the bunker that he claimed had no transmissions (stating everyone was dead), yet when Michelle escapes, on her car radio she hears all about the war against fighting the aliens.

CORRECTION: *There is no evidence to suggest that Howard even tries his radio in the bunker, and also noted by another contributor - His radio is a VHF radio that would normally pick up emergency broadcasts.

However, toward the end of the film, Michelle hears a broadcast on an AM radio - Howard's radio WOULD NOT have been able to receive this signal.

In addition, Howard's motives are unclear. If he is keeping Michelle hostage, why would he tell her the radio works???* See more »

Powerful and shocking mystery
11 March 2016 | by jesussanchezfdezSee all my reviews

10 Cloverfield Lane gives all the development and the meaningful story that its blood relative installment lacked completely. This is not a spectacle full of screams and special effects. This is a spectacle of tension and suspense of epic proportions. This is a really feel-bad movie at certain points.

First of all, you have to take the leap of faith and go ahead watching without knowing anything of the plot. Don't worry because all the teasers doesn't reveal anything important, but don't try to search information. If everything were that easy, even Hitchcock or Nolan movies would lose all interest.

I was extremely hooked since the furious start to the eye popping and surprising finale. The direction is amazing and claustrophobic. The performances are great, looking up to a surprising Winstead and a unrestrained unforgettable turn by Goodman. The story is gleefully unapologetic delivering chills and full blooded twists (the biggest of all is the intense ending reveal) even thought it deviates from the monster POV storyline.

Secretly made, impeccably marketed, nicely developed and finally here along with us: 10 Cloverfield Lane promised thrills and delivered it and then some. I was expecting some things that I tasted but I was surprised by a complexity and a twisted sense of horror that I didn't see coming. 2016 has released the very first great movie of the year.
