I personally loved the movie. I went and seen it on the opening day. I had a feeling if I enjoyed 'Lost' by JJ Abrams that I knew what to expect for 'Cloverfield'. A lot of people did not like the movie, but be a judge for your self if you want to see it or not. Everyone has their own opinions. I give the movie an overall 8.5 out of 10. The camera gave me Vertigo badly and I want more of the Alien like monster and some information on why it was there in New York and where it came from. So the movie has a lot of What ifs and Huhs to it.
