The Cloverfield Paradox - 4.5/10
All I can say The Cloverfield Paradox is that it had an interesting marketing strateg for a lanjiao movie. I still think of all the Clovefield movies so far, Paradox is the worst. The first one was the best and blew my mind.
I just love movies when you have a bunch of people stuck in space and you watch them do some crazy scary shit. It can be alien or any other shit. As long as its in space, in a cool looking ship and some fuck shit is gonna happen. Alien, Event Horizon, Life, Gravity were all great examples of Sci fi Horror movies. The Cloverfield Paradox sadly wont be in that list.
I will say Paradox had a great start, then it got a little bit ridiculous in the middle and downright stupid towards the end.
Half the fuck time, I don't understand what the fuck is going on. You can keep saying the fucking word "Paradox" 5000 times. It still doesn't explain much and it doesn't make the movie look smart either.
There are two things that annoyed the shit out of me in this movie. One was the arm scene. It was a great idea for a scare but the execution and acting fucked it up. and giving it a fucking pen was fucking stupid as well.
Second was this. You have a team of scientists/ astronauts from different countries. You got an English, a Russian, a German, an Italian or French (I can't remember) and a Chinese. When everyone is speaking English, why the fuck must the Chinese be speaking in Mandarin only? So the rest of staff need to learn how to speak Mandarin on top of saving the world? What kind of fucking lanjiao logic is that? Cheebye, you cannot make Zhang Zhiyi speak English ah? Really fucking stupid.
The casting was horrible for this movie. Chris O'Dowd is not right for this movie at all. His reactions were shit. The main actress ho was supposed to be the most level headed character does something dumb towards the end which just makes me question, what the fuck is the writer doing? Wasted lah, this movie had the potential to be great but bad acting and story ruined it.
Don't bother watching The Cloverfield Paradox, it's a waste of time.
