Enjoyable enough movie, that is until you think too deep into how any of it actually works. Of course when it comes to multidimensional time who really knows what's going on, and even as a prequel it doesn't do a fantastic job of setting up the original Cloverfield. That all being said its mostly enjoyable to watch, the characters are good and well developed, the effects are top notch and the acting is rather good. It's main flaws are how it gets in over its own head and has to find simple ways out near the end to the things together, and hardly does any actual set up for the monsters that are the core of the Cloverfield movies, instead we are left to assume that, somewhere in this mess of 2 dimensional time and space and whatever else is going on, they were brought over to earth. Points for enjoyment to watch, points lost for not making much actual sense

I did not watch any of the Cloverfield movies prior to watching this movie on a long flight. I found it done very well and enjoyed the storyline. I just finished the first movie and look forward to the second. Great trilogy so far!

I don't know what to say. If this was a movie separate from the Cloverfield series then this would have been an average movie, but since it is then it is a little confusing trying to tie it in to the others. First of all, the cast is the best part of the movie, Daniel Bruhl was awesome. Anyway for a cast I only knew two people of, the rest did a good job. The story is solid but it was really hard to connect it to the others, I couldn't draw and theories from it. Events happened quickly and without much explanation but the characters seemed fine with that. The CGI, whew, was just a little below mediocre, but give them props for the making use of the $35 million budget. I did like the music however; it went well with the theme of a sci-fi horror. The ending was interesting, I both understood it and was confused by it, I just don't know what to say anymore.

Top-notch cast but the movie is a convoluted mess. Would recommend to steer clear.

The Cloverfield Paradox, is not one of the best installments in the Cloverfield franchise that lacks the scars and thrills.

Only thing decent in this movie was the acting from the lead actress. Everything other than that is a disappointing piece of trash. Basically betrayed the entire fanbase of the Cloverfield Universe. Doesn't help that it makes no sense whatsoever.

As a space thriller with human spirit and an entry in one of the most mind-boggling sci-fi franchises of our time, it got me going the whole way through. As a well-thought-out supernatural mystery, it suffices to say that it's not.

Starts off promising, but turns into a cheap space horror as time goes on.

Production value and special effects were ok, but overall story and plots were a bit weak. I love Science Fiction so I'd say overall, I think it is an ok watch.

Really weird. I watched it 4 times and each time I noticed something different. The Cloverfield monsters have very little to do with the story but the story was enjoyable. I liked it.

I am on the Cloverfield bandwagon. As much as i love the online discussions linking all the film,. I tend to now watch them as individual movies. After i was disappointed by 10 Cloverfield Lane not following the events of Cloverfield. I chose instead to rewatch 10 with the mindset that the film was not related to Cloverfield.

Taking away the 'stupidity' of the crews actions, and that everyone online seems to have hated this movie. I walked away enjoying this warped and strange film. I love good graphics/cgi, and i love a film set in space. Now i know The Colverfield Paradox will never be another Event Horizon or Alien (Yes i love Alien over Aliens), I'm just glad we are getting more science fiction content to watch.

A classic example of Netflix as a theatrical dumping ground, you aren't gonna get much out of Cloverfield Paradox other than a few unintentional laughs.

Decent movie but not as good as the last two related films

One of the dumbest sci-fi movies I've ever seen, and that's saying something.

i enjoyed the movie, it expanded on the lore but i felt disappointed because i wanted more, more answers and more plot but also i wanted better acting skills from the actors, if you are not a fan of the cloverfield universes you wouldn't like this one

It adds to the overall story, but in the end, it's just a space filler.
