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.
