'10 Cloverfield Lane' Review: Thriller is Real Nail-Biter

Mary Elizabeth Winstead and John Goodman in 10 Cloverfield Lane

John McClane would be proud. Mary Elizabeth Winstead, best known for playing Bruce Willis' daughter in the Die Hard movies, is one kick ass character in 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE. She doesn't throw punches or kicks, but her Michelle character uses her smarts and resourcefulness throughout the thriller.  Part of the enjoyment of this film is going through her journey of whether she should trust her captor played by John Goodman who claims he saved her from the end of the world. Although it bares the name Cloverfield, don't expect it to tie into the 2008 film.

For obvious reasons, not much can be said about the film since the unknown is what makes 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE work. What should be said is that Winstead, John Goodman and Newroom's John Gallagher Jr. give great performances with a tight script that grounds everything in reality.

Given 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE is director Dan Trachtenberg's first feature film, it's pretty impressive. The film's setting takes largely in the underground bunker, and you get the feeling of being in the close quarters with the characters. When the film becomes intense, it only adds to the horror.
