Review
You know how before this came out at the cinema there was massive internet hype, a mind boggling disaster, sci-fi, horror, action flick, but bugger all about what the plot actually involved? Well that's because apart from monsters reeking havoc in New York, and some pretty young things trapped in the carnage, there is no plot; nada, zilch, nothing. Cloverfield works so well because it stoutly refuses to offer you anything other than adrenalin fuelled, clammy palmed escapism and filming it through a pseudo hand held video camera carried by one of the unfortunates adds immediacy without taking away from the spectacle. If people call JJ Abrams anything behind his back it's got to be p*!ck tease' but darn, he does know how to entertain.
