Rob is getting ready to leave New York in order to take an executive job at a company in Japan. At his goodbye party Rob's ex-girlfriend Beth shows up at the party with a new beau, which upsets Rob. Then the unexpected happens: New York is suddenly under attack from a Godzilla-like monster who stomps through midtown, destroying everything and everybody in sight. Rob and his friends take to the streets, but instead of running away with the other evacuees, they head toward the center of destruction so that Rob can rescue an injured Beth.

Maybe one of the worst movies I have ever seen. Made no sense at all, and unless you just LOVE the jerky hand held camera, sideways shots, floor shots, running shots etc. this movie is not for anyone. That is how the entire movie is filmed. Please don't confuse this movie with 12 Cloverfield Lane (I think that is the name, the one with John Goodman), as that one was very worthwhile to watch and enjoyable. This one was a total waste of time for me. Somehow I ended up giving this a one star when I should be no stars at all.

I can't remember the movie we were seeing when the teaser for Cloverfield popped on out of nowhere. Normally teasers leave little detail, but heighten a sense of what might be. I remember after whatever movie we were seeing was over, we kept saying, "What was that?" A unique element of surprise we've come to expect from JJ Abrams.

Meh. Not bad "found footage" movie, great creatures, not so great story... and there were points where it absolutely didn't make sense for the characters to continue with the filming (I found that really jarring).

A very poor imitation of the Blair Witch Project.
No character development.
Tiresome to watch "trendy millenials" running around looking for their iPhones.
Boring.
Useless and not worthwhile.

When i first watched this movie i wasn't sure what to expect. I was very surprised to find that it became one of my favorite movies at the time. Almost everyone i know who had seen the movie hated it, but it was so different than everything else i had see (given i have not seen the blair witch project) that i could not help but like the movie.

Get a bottle of Dramamine. Filmed like the Blair Witch movie. 84 minutes of my life I've wasted. Very lame.

Can't see what is going on. The constant language and taking of Our LORD's name in vain was terrible. Not recommended.

I hope here got a negative star so I can award it to this film.
Nothing worth to see. only shaking scene. Some very exciting idea could be but only in the brain of the director. Just wasted my time and my power to pay for.

I wish there was a lower rating than 1/2 star. This movie had nothing interesting or scary and the ending was particularly useless.

Hud: Ocean is big, dude. All I'm saying is a couple of years ago, they found a fish in Madagascar that they thought been extinct for centuries.

Rob Hawkins: So what? It's been down there this whole time, and nobody noticed?

Hud: Sure. Maybe it erupted from an ocean trench, you know? Or a crevasse. Crevice. It's just a theory. I mean, for all we know, it's from another planet and it flew here.

Marlena Diamond: Like Superman?

Hud: Yeah, exactly like... Wait. You know who Superman is?

Marlena Diamond: Oh, my God. You know who Superman is?

Hud: Okay, I'm not...

Marlena Diamond: [sarcastically] I'm, like, feeling something. Are you aware of Garfield.

IT'S ALIVE!!! AND IT'S HUGE!!

I would love to write a quote here, but this movie is not that pithy. It doesn't have much dialog other than "What was that?' and "Oh my God! RUN!!" These feel like real people running for their lives, so they don't have really time to be funny or profound.
