A brilliant way to Americanize the Japanese 'monster movie' genre. Instead of focusing on the military trying to kill the monster, Cloverfield focuses on people during a monster attack. It shows all the confusion, loss, drive, and heroism that people encounter after being thrown into a situation that they have little knowledge of or control over. It's about love and the human spirit that can never be destroyed.
The alternate endings show different clips from the "Coney Island" footage that was recorded over. Nothing exciting, but one ending has someone finding the camcorder buried under the rubble. The deleted scenes are from the party and the outtakes are pretty funny to watch. It's a great movie to own!
