With names like "Steven Spielberg" and "J.J. Abrams", you'd think that Super 8 would've turned out better. However, a stream of well developed special effects cannot make up for a somewhat lacking plot development. Grade: C

Super 8 couldn't have been more action packed! The storyline, for the most part, was great. The only problem is the movies is so built up to just be let down at the end. VERY ANTICLIMACTIC!! For the main characters being all children, the acting was pretty up to par. But I would recommend this movie to adults (I know it's rated PG-13, but the rating should have been R).

I fell asleep many times only to be shocked awake with some loud noise here and there. The story was toooo long. You only seen the alien really well with the minute long face shot of it while it was breathing on the kid. What about a little more background info on the creature? We know it eats people when hungry. Is the ultimate horder of electronics. Lives underground and has a really cheezy looking ship at the end. Also, how do you survive a head on collision with a train, truck burst into flames and you are still alive??? I should have waited for it to come out on DVD. DON"T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!! DISAPPOINTING for a JJ ABRAMS production!!!

Good Plot. Pretty good acting by amateurs. Very corny ending though.
