I enjoyed it.

If someone had told you this was the greatest block buster of the year, or a contender to beat out Star Wars or Alien for greatest sci-fi of all time, you'd be mightily disappointed.

And coming from J.J. Abrams and stupidly having had the "Cloverfield" thing jammed into it pointlessly, anyone would reasonably be very disappointed, or if you are someone who has to over think movies you would be too.

But if you approach this like an episode of Doctor Who, or Torchwood, or some other BBC type sci-fi series, (which is what it looks like given the actors), it is fine, and if you tell someone to approach it that way they might enjoy it even you didn't.

Should have been named "The Paradox". Why did they have "Cloverfield" thrown in there?...

I didn't even know that this movie had been made. So it was something of a surprise to find it on Netflix. And while I enjoyed the first two movies, of course I had to sit down and watch this 2018 addition to the franchise.

However, it turned out that "The Cloverfield Paradox" was the least interesting of all the movies in the franchise so far, despite it having a very solid and talented ensemble of acting performers.

It was the shallow and pointless storyline that was a drag for me, because it served absolutely no purpose and offered only such a diminutive narrative twist to the franchise. If anything, then it felt like a very unnecessary movie.

Certain things in the movie just made little or no sense; such as why would there be a Chinese among the crew whom doesn't speak English and only two of the crew seemed to be able to speak Chinese, or something as important as how casual everyone was about their situation and how easily they shrugged off the hopelessness of the situation.

Visually, then "The Cloverfield Paradox" was quite good.

However, I was disappointed with the lack of further introduction to the strange monstrous visitors that found their way to Earth.

This is not a movie that I will be returning to watch a second time around. And to be honest, then it felt like they made the movie and then slapped the "Cloverfield" brand on it afterwards. It didn't have that particular element from the previous two movies, not even in the slightest.
