Not quite what I was expecting but it was interesting not sure if it was worth the 10.00 I paid to see it though.

whoever saw the movie knows that the camera was recording over a day that happened about a month earlier....

DID ANYONE CATCH THE VERY LAST SCENE OF THE MOVIE WHEN THE CAMERA WAS LOOKING OUT ONTO THE WATER ON THE DAY A MONTH EARLIER?

i think i saw something in that scene but i can't be positive until i see it again.

It's kind of funny you say that, because there *is* something falling into the water in the last scene :].

The HYpe is way bigger than any monster you see in the Movie. Save your money. I implore you!

The whole theatre was dissappointed at this one.

Great movie hands down! Looks like there can be a sequel to this one. At the end when the two characters were trapped under the bridge then the city was leveled you really don't know if they survived or not. On the other hand the military found the camera so that means they were searching through central park. This leads me to believe that a sequel may be in the future?? And the monster survived the "Hammer Down"?

This was a great movie! Even Star Wars didn't put me on this kind of edge of your seat kind of ride.
Sure, there are negative points, but the viseral feelings this movie generates is often missing in todays Hollywood. Thumbs-up to J.J. Abrams and crew.
Of course there will and should be a sequel. But this one should be filmed in a traditional action-movie style.
J.J., if you're reading this, call me babe, I've got some plot ideas.

Absolutely loved this movie. The shakey camera, first person point of view while annoying at first was a brilliant device. I read somewhere that a sequel might be the same night filmed from a different perspective.
I found myself becoming interested in the sub plot at the party just when the sh*t hit the fan, perfect timing.
GO SEE THIS MOVIE!!!!
The only bad part was the jerk behind me at UA Stony Brook (5:15 show) talking through the whole damn movie.

Great movie, but could not figure out why it is called Cloverfield?
Crappy Movie

This was one crappy movie. I would have rather placed the camera in bin close to my home and made a better movie out of it. This movie was a rip off. It had a very ordinary story and a nauseating camera angle. This feels like a dope flick than a horror movie.
Yuck

I only went to keep my teenaged son company. It's fine for a 16 year old boy, but I want to warn away any adults. It's a remake of lousy Saturday afternoon television horror flicks.
