The Cloverfield Paradox is too silly to live up to its potential.

It was a shame to see the hype-to-backlash cycle boiled down to just a few short hours on a Super Bowl Sunday. The marketing was ingenious, but the film itself could not live up to the 'event'. A let down for fans of the first two films.

Con otra secuela en camino, lo único rescatable de este debacle es que no llegó a los cines.

Not smart enough, not thrilling enough, and a cop out born from marketing hype rather than one grown from well thought out scientific reasoning.

A wasted opportunity that just feels lazy. This should be an offense to the universe that Abrams created. [Full review in Spanish].

Paradox feels like a random assortment of indifferently mounted space-thriller and body-horror sequences that have been pulverized into an unintelligible narrative slurry.

The Cloverfield Paradox is bad on so many levels, but it's made worse by the fact it tries to be good.
November 15, 2018
Conceptually, there's something to both Paradox and the overall loosely-connected Cloverfield universe. Unfortunately, the bulk of the movie's runtime fails to capitalize on virtually any of that promise.

The decision to make this a Cloverfield movie at the last minute didn't make the movie any better. In fact, it probably made it worse.

This surprise Netflix addition comes from a distinguished franchise, but like a paradox, no matter how hard you think about it, it will always be logically unacceptable.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 29, 2018
Instead of birthing a new method of distribution, Netflix demonstrated the most high profile dumping of a garbage product.

This wasn't the heralded gamechanger. This was a studio desperately attempting to dump a disastrous film, but use a clever PR stunt to fool us all into watching it.

November 11, 2018
Despite some interesting moments, this feels like a failure. The filmmaking is incredibly bland, the story can't figure out if it's having fun with the weirdness or not, and the Cloverfield tie in is gimmicky, leaving you with more questions than answers.

It's easy to see why it was shuffled to Netflix and not granted a wide release.
Full Review | Original Score: 5.5/10

The marketing gets an A+; the movie, not so much.
September 25, 2018
I have no regrets about watching the movie, the acting was great and it's definitely an interesting story...but it just didn't feel like a Cloverfield movie.

Apparently in space, nobody can hear you say 'meh.'

... started off incredibly strong and petered out to a predictable and dull ending. Not great, not awful, it's certainly a disappointment.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

You can get better versions of this movie in multiple places elsewhere.

It just felt like something was missing. nothing about this movie was very exciting. I'd say it was just a very average Sci-fi movie.
