ClearPlay In Action!
While most of this movie is merely building up suspense, there are some violent and shocking moments as the film progresses. The whole premise of holding someone against their will could be disturbing to some viewers, and there’s not much ClearPlay can do about that, but the filters can cut out the bloodier moments of this movie and the brief, scattered language, including one F-word.
So Will It Hold My Attention Captive?
10 Cloverfield Lane is a smart and original film. It masterfully builds tension as the story unfolds and it keeps you guessing the whole time. The cast is very small, but each actor plays their part well. It doesn’t have much to do with the original Cloverfield movie, however that doesn’t matter – this movie can stand on its own.
