    Interesting for a younger target group. I found it predictable and boring

    Appalling scripting and nonsense logic are merely the loosely tied strings between cliches and jump scares.

    Sorely disappointed.

    The closest a recent film has come to capturing the classic 80s family adventure feel of "E.T." and "Back to the Future".

    Viena no gada gaidītākajām un apspriestākajām filmām, kura iespējams nebija visa trača vērta, taču ir un paliek lieliska vasaras sezonas izklaides filma.

    J.J. Abrams and Steven Spielberg team up to create an awesome yet sentimental story that is generally underrated.

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Aside from an odd ending, this coming of age tale is a love letter to cinema itself and the innocence and ambition of youth. Directed to perfection with naturalistic acting and breathtaking set pieces.

    This is the closest J.J. Abhrams has got to rising above "okay." The beginning is great but the rest is just alright. Not bad by any means but definitely not that great either. You know, like just about every other J.J. Abhrams movie.

    Shot over the course of 12 years Super 8 is a movie unlike any other. Ever. Try to think of a similar movie- you can't. This just hadn't ever been done before. Cause this is a capitol "F" Film. And there has never been another Film like it.

    When people talk about Block Busters they talk Jaws and Titanic, and now they can also talk Super 8. When Super 8 came out let's just say The Box Office took notice.…
