There are so many differing reviews here, covering everything from awful to excellent, it's going to be difficult writing anything new. So, I'll not try and just say what I thought:

I quite liked the idea of a group of kids making zombie movies and the comradeship that brings and we see them getting along for a common purpose. Some of the scenes between young Joel Courtney's and Elle Fanning's are touching, believable and very well acted, whilst the others offered a ragbag of youngsters that are typical of a traditional Spielberg.

The military/scifi elements might not be totally new and unique, but to my middle-aged mind were put together well enough to seem fresh. The SFX were good enough for what was needed, though not exactly state of the art.

Enough went on and mostly suspenseful enough to keep me interested and ultimately, I enjoyed it for what it was. My rented DVD won't be replaced with a copy of my own, though and I give 7/10.

J.J. Abrams' love letter to the 80s, to 8mm moviemaking, to rite-of-passage movies and - especially - to Steven Spielberg himself. Despite listening to many criticisms about it from my friends (some of which rather on point), I personally love it to bits and regard it as a masterpiece in evocative nostalgia, something that speaks a language that I not only instinctively understand, but also cherish and long for. As far as I'm concerned, this movie has it all. If, as me, you've been raised on the best the 80s had to offer, you will have your heartstrings plucked.

Super 8 is another high-concept low-yield movie from J.J. Abrams that is okay but really ought to be better. There's promise in its Spielbergian tale of a group of late-70s schoolkids making their own zombie movie only to stumble cross a real monster after an Air Force train crashes into the middle of one of their scenes, but despite the odd good scene it along the way never really takes hold. The look of the film is fine and the cast are good, but the film doesn't have the heart of those it is makes so much show of imitating. Like them or loathe them, Spielberg's 80s movies were a seamless mixture of his everyday memories of an awkward suburban childhood and his youthful fantasies and fears, the former giving them a genuinely personal and lived-through feel that helped create a credible enough world for their incredible tales for the joins to barely show. With Abrams you get the feeling of someone trying to recreate someone else's childhood memories, fears and fantasies, drawn not from life or personal imagination but solely from the silver screen. It's so self-consciously referencing the films that the director grew up with it never feels genuine and never finds a voice of its own (and talking of voices, some of the incidental dialogue is horribly flat while Michael Giacchino's score pilfers from John Williams, early James Horner and from John Barry's King Kong score so much you wonder why he's credited as composer rather than orchestrator at times). If you've seen Close Encounters, The Goonies, E.T., The Fog and any of the other films it `homages,' you'll get the feeling of ticking off a list. But then this is ultimately just a big budget sibling to the film within a film the kids are making: someone trying to recreate their childhood pleasures rather than offering up dreams of his own.Read more ›

I didn't like this film and I am glad that I rented it only instead of buying. Below, more of my impressions, with some limited SPOILERS.

In 1979 a group of young teenagers is working on an amateur horror film about a zombie infestation. One night they slip out of homes to film a scene which happens on an abandoned railway station. When doing it they witness a terrible train derailment, during which SOMETHING escapes from a kind of an armored wagon... and then the film really begins.

Even if this film was directed by J.J. Abrams (which made me suddenly very concerned about the next STAR WARS movie...), it was produced by Steven Spielberg and it is clear from the beginning that "Super 8" is just a mixture of recycled elements from "E.T.", "Close encounters of the third kind" and "Taken" TV series. It wouldn't be a problem if this mix was well made - but it was NOT!

The story is silly and terribly predictable, filled with every possible cliché in the book. US military and US government are presented as some kind of Nazis. The alien creature is a kind and gentle thing and it kills only bad people, namely those who wear uniforms... A drug using, vulgar slacker (Jeez, what a role model!) is the main ally of children against the bad US government, who not only abuses gentle alien creatures but also routinely murders US citizens. I also couldn't really feel any sympathy for little heroes from "Super 8" - unlike in "E.T.", far from being nice kids, they are a mixture of boring and annoying brats with deep issues.

As many other recent films, this one tries to be a sci-fi film for both adult and young public - just to fail on both counts, as it is too violent and scary for a kid's movie and too childish for a grown-up movie...

I barely managed to finish watching it and at the end I was simply relieved that this ordeal was over. Avoid!
