    I'm a fan of the Cloverfield franchise and have to say 10 Cloverfield Lane is my fave film of the bunch so far. Really looking forward to this movie. The cast is awesome.

    I feel like this is one I will enjoy. Not entirely sure why. But it just has... potential.

    A friend saw this at Toronto After Dark and said it's totally nuts so I can't wait to check it out.

    Just got back from seeing this and wow... If you're thinking of checking it out don't wait for it to be out of theater. Very worth seeing in the theater, as close to the screen as you can take for full effect.
    But it's very intense, the opening sequence is great and the whole movie does a great job of blending action, war and horror. Might be my favorite movie of 2018.

    Total Lifetime Grosses
    Domestic: $11,481,689 51.0%
    + Foreign: $11,045,604 49.0%
    = Worldwide: $22,527,293
    This movie cost 38 million dollars to make, not exactly the opening they were looking for. Kind of a weird time to release it.

    Managed to find this the other day, after trying for a bit. Wanted to see it in theater but just missed out. Was mostly just what I expected. A bit more slow moving and a bit less action / horror / gore. But generally a decent watch. The cast is a bit more engaging than I expected for being mostly little known.

    I just watched this and thought the same thing. They all had pretty solid chemistry and I particularly enjoyed Wyatt Russell doing Kurt Russell-lite.

    However, I also felt it was slow moving and actually kind of lengthy. I think it would have greatly benefited from cutting the runtime by about 10 minutes. The exposition scene when they first get to the house could have easily been shaved down, as could the scene where Boyce first enters the church. I also felt it was really predictable and just seemed like Frankenstein's Army but without the really cool monsters or the found footage effect.

    Still, I gave it a 7/10 so it's not like I hated it or anything. Definitely could have been better though.

    I've really quite liked Little Kurt Russell in Lodge 21, so it was cool to see him in something more substantial. Can definitely see the lineage

    It just didn't quite have the pacing and balance that I wanted. I know that's its poor form to rate based on your expectations, but I feel that pacing and balance made it less of what the trailers promised, so....

    Just ended up feeling it was just a few steps away from being a REALLY GOOD flick for its genre. Like you say, not bad at all as it is. Just not as good as it could have been.
