The Cloverfield Paradox ★★½

Great cast but the movie feels completely disjointed and even the basics of alternate universes are so badly handled it doesn't fit the general rules but also fails to present any new ones. I was frustrated by the lack of cohesive storytelling and as much as I love this cast and some of the little things - Ziyi Zhang only speaking Cantonese, Chris O'Dowd's bizarre comedy relief - it's not nearly enough to move the needle on this movie which is dead in the water from 20 minutes in.
