Cloverfield follows five New Yorkers from the perspective of a hand-held video camera. The movie is exactly the length of a DV Tape and a sub-plot is established by showing bits and pieces of video previously recorded on the tape that is being recorded over. The movie starts as a monster of unknown origin destroys a building. As they go to investigate, parts of the building and the head of the Statue of Liberty come raining down. The movie follows their adventure trying to escape and save a friend, a love interest of the main character. Written by
The title "Cloverfield"; initially just a codename for the movie, is named for the boulevard in Santa Monica where the Bad Robot offices were located during the making of the film. See more »
After the initial attack with the Statue of Liberty head laying in the street and everyone emerges from the store, Hud starts exclaiming that he has footage of the monster, and everyone gathers around Hud as if he is going to play the video. The footage cuts to some additional footage that Hud is supposedly taping over, and then the image resumes, as if Hud turned the recording feature back on just after everyone has seen the footage, and is reacting to the sight.
The problem is that if Hud rewound the tape back to show the footage of the monster, and then stopped the footage just after the monster appeared on the screen, then started recording again, he would have taped over everything that happened after he saw the monster (all of the footage in the store, for instance). Not enough time had elapsed between him showing the footage and his audience's reactions for him to fast-forward again to a spot after the footage we saw of him exclaiming he had images of the monster.

Cloverfield was so boring for me, i lost interest from the 35th minute. I did not find the story eventful or the movie intense ! It was basically a badly directed, shaky camera, unfinished piece of a well thought of idea. I did not mind the shaky camera and i did not mind the very short monster sequences. But the directing was just so whacked up they had to end it so terribly... basically it is a group of friends who tries to find their friend who is trapped inside a hotel room, and the adventure starts with heartache and fear... they save her, enters the helicopters, then the helicopters gets owned by the monster than they run away again , then... the end. This is not a movie people, this is not even a bit scary, and i do not understand the people who say that is was intense and it was a thrill ride. i almost slept during this film... hardly entertaining and a huge let down ending. Cloverfield 2 should be about how they could have improved Cloverfield 1.
