10 CLOVERFIELD LANE
BANNER: Bad Robot Productions
PRODUCER: J. J. Abrams
DIRECTOR: Dan Trachtenberg
CAST: Mary Elizabeth Winstead, John Goodman, John Gallagher, Jr.
STORY:Soon after leaving her fiancé Michelle is involved in a car accident. She awakens to find herself sharing an underground bunker with Howard and Emmett. Has she been saved from an apocalyptical event as Howard & Emmett tell her or are there other motives for her being held against her will?
CRITICAL ANALYSIS:10 Cloverfield Lane is a story that is entirely compelling for the entirety of its runtime – at no stage does it slow down or become uninteresting, and at no stage are there any predictable moments. The dialogue is nothing short of brilliant and keeps you on edge from start to finish, also due to fantastic execution from its cast.
TRADE ANALYSIS: If you like stories that lock characters together in tight, paranoid spaces then you'll find a lot to enjoy here. Just don't go in expecting Cloverfield 2, because this is not it. It's its own beast, and has a brave ending that you'll either love or hate.
At the box office, the film has low chances to perform well.
