Cloverfield ★★★½

This movie is the American gojira. Gojira was meant to show the fear of nuclear power and throughout that movie gojiras attacks mimic the one of the atom bomb. This movie does that but instead of showing the horror caused by the atom bombings this movie does it with 9/11. The quickness of the incident and the lack of knowledge about what's going on mimic what many felt at that time. Even without the symbolism throughout the movie it's still pretty good. The sparce use of the monster builds to the reveal at the end and the monster is very unique and memerable. The movies not flawless though and many of the characters feel like they are just there to die ( which they are ). So overall this movie is really good but not flawless. 79/100
