A fair movie.

This movie was entertaining. I'd say it was a little better than average. The train derailing was entertaining to watch but was WAY over-dramatic. How did the dude not die? A train crashed into him, and he is basically fine. Not sure what I think about the monster... He did monstery things, like dig holes, kidnap people, and hang them in webs -- but he is also capable of flying an interstellar spacecraft. Strange combination. I see where Strange Things got its inspiration. Also, the micro-bots from Big Hero 6. While the movie was not perfect, it was enjoyable, unlike so many of the other movies I have seen lately.

Distinctly average sci-fi thriller

'Super 8' starts off promisingly enough, but after the initial scenario is set (in spectacular fashion), the film's lack of ideas are quickly exposed and it nose-dives fast. Technically it's very impressive - well produced and the CGI/special effects are excellent and realistic, but visuals only get you so far. When you dig beyond the surface, there's nothing impressive about 'Super 8' at all. It's no different to 90% of other sci-fi films that have come before it.

It's a distinctly average sci-fi thriller that borrows virtually all of its ideas from elsewhere. Despite all the action sequences, explosions and other special effects, the generic, shallow plot and uninteresting characters make it a completely forgettable film. The glowing reception it received on release is baffling, especially from the critics. 'Super 8' gets an average 5 from me.

Slightly forgettable

Looked and sounded amazing. Boom! Slightly forgettable blend of Stand by Me (1986) and E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial (1982). Had some enthralling action and very well acted. I was engrossed by the action and loved the concept and setting but the story felt pretty unimaginative.
