  1. So far I’ve only liked Cloverfield too and I don’t have Netflix so I can’t see this movie.

  2. My take is that it’s a different dimension and one of the monsters was put into the first movie’s universe during the trans-dimensional event. I still think it doesn’t work, though. The viral background info seemed to indicate pretty solidly that the monster was earth-born and mutated by that company.

  3. Seeing the ending to this one and connecting it to the first Cloverfield, I can’t help but think that this is Abrams’ take on the Stephen King story, The Mist. In that story, you have a government-sponsored experiment of some sort which tears a hole in space-time, resulting in deadly monsters coming to our world. Here, it is pretty much the same thing, only without all the religious spin on everything.

    I was disappointed. I found the plot itself to be rather incoherent. I get the gist of what’s going on, but there still doesn’t seem to be any causal connection between the things that happen. At times, it seemed rather silly.

    And the ending doesn’t really wrap things up, either. Sure, you see the monster, now bigger than it was before. But it’s still far too open-ended how this event caused those in the first film.

    I wasn’t impressed.

    But then again, we have to keep in mind, this same guy came up with one of the most intriguing supernatural mystery shows ever made, and it all ended with people just going to a church.
