Dan O'Neill70 - Though it has problems with itís script and the dumb things that usually are done by all characters in every single horror film, Cloverfield is well-filmed, scary, and at-times, clever gimmick. However, itís a gimmick that works and makes you feel like youíre on a roller-coaster, including the nauseating side-effects.
