All teen and kid member reviews for Cloverfield

e.g. Perfect for tweens or at age 12, but not younger

I loved this movie! It was really good! The only thing that was bad was in the beginning when he did the camera on the naked lady which tweens should cover their eyes for that. And there was violence. I would say kids below the age of 12 couldn't watch it unless they've seen scary movies before and have handled it, like me.

Horror At It's Best

at 84 minutes, it's a perfect length for the story and format the film is presented in (it uses the "shaky cam" motif (it was filmed on a handheld camera) to give the film a gritty and grotesque look, without relying on extreme violence and gore to scare the viewer. While this format does tend to cause motion sicknes in some, it's obviously a very unique and modern approach. Like I stated earlier, this film has no need for extreme gore and violence, but there still is a large amount (cuts and bruises, and one particurly intense and disturbing sequence which causes and unfortunate fate of a main character) and it mainly delivers scares from suspense and the unknown. This film I garuntee will scare the crap out of you and you must see it whenever you get the chance.

no kids under 12

well i saw this movie a wile back and i think it depends on what your kids can handle that goes for all movies. But this movie has some graphic images of people blowing up and exploding in blood behind a curtain (its PG-13 and they had to keep it that way) But otherwise i really enjoyed this movie i have always loved monster movies and this one was loud,explosive and perfect.

One of the best movies I ever seen!

I loved this movie! I saw this movie when I was 10 and did not get scared. It might be bad for some kids if they get scared easily. But if you like thrillers and screaming movies you will love this movie. It doesn't make you scream you just hear a lot of screaming ;)

Good for teens and mature tweens

I thought that it was a good movie. The early scene shows a women in bed, but nothing is seen. There WAS a lot of violence, but it didn't scare me or my friend. It was not very realistic. I think anyone over the age of 12 can watch it, as the only scary part was the explosions, there was really no suspence or thrill.

A rather pointless yet enjoyable movie, yet very disturbing. Not for young ones.

I loved the movie. There are rommor that there is going to be a sequal or a prequel. It was really good and scarry. It was not bloddy or anything. It is like a endge of your seat thriller. I think it was a great movie. Don't let the youngest kids see it. I saw it when I was 12. I think that is the lowest age that should watch it.

Frequent use of innapropriate language, some *ual discussion and behaviors, and very terrifying violence.

A Great Monster Movie!

Loud, violent and scary. Cloverfield combines the first person feel of "The Blair Witch Project" with a monster movie. The result is a entertaing but forgetable movie, which is only another stepping stone for J.J. Abrams.

HOLY CRAP!

i saw this movie in the theater the second day. before all the intensity happens i was already shaking in my seat. right as the action starts i was shaking and jumping out of my seat. that feeling in the theater will never be the same. i still love the movie.

Greatest thriller since See No Evil

I loved this movie. A lot of people complained about the camera shake, but I actually thought that it added to the film's fiction, making it more realistic and actually plausible. You don't hear that about a lot of monster films. There IS a lot of innuendo in the beginning but I think that's a non-issue due to the fact that most 13 year olds have heard all that by then. There is quite a bit of gore in this movie, a bit too much for PG-13. The S-word is dropped a lot, too, but like I said about the innuendo, it's a non-issue. The gore is mostly in one scene inside a makeshift military hospital, where you see a corpse with the chest exploded being pushed on a cart. Later in the same scene, a character begins bleeding from their eyes and mouth, gets pushed behind a curtain, and promptly explodes, splattering blood all over the curtain. I wouldn't recommend taking anyone less than 15 to see this due to the gore and fright factor, but I still thought it was a very good movie.
