Cloverfield

Saw this at my local Showcase last night.

Wow. Great film.  I can see why Empire gave it the review that they did.

There was more of the monster than I expected (and a surprise from that too) but less of introduction, ending, etc. There is no title music, or even titles. It’s represented as US evidence of what happened, and ends abruptly at the end once the home video ends (if you didn’t already realise, the whole film is taken on a hand-held camcorder. This make it very atmospheric, as if “actually being there”).

Very cool and it bodes well for JJ Abram’s next film… Star Trek.

[review]Creepy, unnerving and original. A brilliant film in all respects[/review]
