Not bad.

Cloverfield is one of the most exciting and frightening sci-fi horrors of the last decade. A wobbly-rollercoaster ride that weaves its rickety way through darkened subways and exploding skyscrapers to avoid the powerful, terrifying and destructive force that has New York City under attack. Matt Reeves' monster-horror combines suspense, terror and explosions within its sudden, claustrophobic, and tension-filled scenes of desperate New Yorkers struggling to stay alive.

Rob's (Michael Stahl-David) impending trip to Tokyo is put on hold when, during his going away party, a devastating and frightening presence starts to destroy the city. As the explosions, screams and devastation increase, Rob, his brother Jason (Mike Vogel) and their group of friends face the most difficult decision of their lives. As Rob's long-term friend and current love interest Beth (Odette Yustman) is trapped alone in her apartment on the other side of the city, do they attempt to save themselves and flee the city to safety or head further in to the ruin and save Beth?

Cloverfield is a fantastically wrought film, where The Blair Witch Project style of using a handheld home video camera throughout adds tension and captures the chilling realism of the situation in which the city, and group, have found themselves in. With stylistic flourishes and inventive shocks, director Matt Reeves and visionary producer J. J. Abrams (Lost), have delivered on their `documentary-style' monster attack concept and produced an enjoyable, exhilarating and downright scary monster movie.

Not really a film that is needed in bluray. Its supposed to be first person perspective, filmed with hand-held cameras. Why would you want this film in HD?
Besides, its a cr*p film!

Depends on what TV you have, whether or not sound is as important to you, and whether you want to see the CGI knitted better to the live action than the DVD will manage. I'm tempted to upgrade, having fist seen it on blu, it was impressive.

The sound on this bluray is one of the best you can get you know.

Sometimes I can see why people think that about some films, but i thought this was a masterpiece

I thought the film was decent enough, and the blu ray is absolutely fantastic! Having seen it on DVD and on blu ray, its got to be one of the best upgrades I've come across

Kennyt, really. I thought the dialogue was very improvised and didn't really go anywhere. The characters were very one dimensional too. I am a scifi fan and like jj abrhams lost, before it went to sky, and thought he did a good job on star trek but was disappointed with his efforts here...

What did you like about the film?

Couldnt agree more. What I saw of the film was utter **** and first person perspective is a joke. I had to leave the cinema after about 50 minutes because I felt physically sick watching it.

You couldnt pay me £5.99 to take this.

the film is rubbish, wasted 1 hr and something minutes of my life

Sorry to jump in, but the framing device of the film was supposed to be 'real' people carrying a handheld camera, so this was kind of deliberate. Suffering from motion sickness as some people have said really isn't a reason to call this a bad film!

What I really liked about this film was it took the old 'giant rubber monster'/Godzilla style film and asked 'what if this ACTUALLY happened in the real world?' and it did it very well in an inventive and disturbing way. It's not without it's problems and shortfalls, but overall I thought it was great.
