Cine Beaverhausen: Buddy B Visits 10 Cloverfield Lane
The film, which opened on the 11th of this month but which I just got around to seeing, provides us an interesting and original premise, A young woman finds herself with two men in a strange house. She's told she was saved from a car accident and that it's unsafe to venture outside as the area is contaminated from chemical warfare.
Of course, you and she may have a lot to ponder and to question about all this after a spell. Mary Elizabeth Winstead is superb as the damsel who may or may not be in distress. John Gallagher Jr and Douglas M. Griffin round out the cast and are also impressive young talents.
Strong direction by Dan Trachtenberg in an auspicious debut as director, smartly scripted by Josh Campbell and Matthew Stuecken. The end was a complete surprise.
Frankly, you may want to wait till this comes to video ~ especially if you have big-screen tv ~ rather than run out to theaters, as intriguing as 10 Cloverfield Lane is. Nothing will be lost for he who hesitates in this case.
This is a well developed and cleverly written brainteaser that I promise will be a white-knuckle ride for you no matter what format you choose to watch it in. Goes down well with popcorn, too!.
