Review of 10 Cloverfield Lane Tanay Somisetty

Review of 10 Cloverfield Lane
Tanay Somisetty

            10 Cloverfield lane is a remarkably brilliant movie that I feel has gone too unnoticed. The movie was produced by J.J. Abrams and Bryan Burk (who both also worked on Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and directed by Dan Trachtenberg who is new on the scene. Although this movie, hit theaters on March 11, 2016, I am reviewing this movie now because I believe it deserves much more recognition than it has received. 10 Cloverfield Lane stars the beautiful Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Michelle. After leaving her boyfriend's house she finds herself in a car crash and then wakes up in an underground bunker. How did she get there? Who brought her there? She meets two other men in this bunker, one of whom; Howard (John Goodman) tells her something bad, possibly a chemical explosion, happened on the surface so it is now uninhabitable. He tells Michelle that he brought her into the bunker to save her life but she keeps her doubts. As time goes on her suspicious grows as to whether Howard is telling the truth or keeping her there as a prisoner. She must leave the bunker at any cost against Howard's will to find the truth and to see her family again. This incredible movie couples suspense and fear (and even a little action) using many twists and turns to make a great film to watch with others. It’ll keep you guessing as to what is really happening on the surface and I expect you will be surprised with the climatic ending, just as I did. One thing I should mention is that when this movie was first announced, many people thought that this movie was a sequel to another movie made by the same producers- Cloverfield. They both have the word Cloverfield in the their titles, so could this be the long awaited sequel? It very well may be but all that matters is that to watch 10 Cloverfield Lane, it is not necessary to watch Cloverfield. PG-13 1h 46m. Rating: 9/10
