love this film,
This review is from: Super 8 [DVD] (DVD)
I must have seen this Film at least 4 time now and I still enjoy it as much as I did the first time round Stephen Spelberg and JJ Abrams (he of star trek)have done a great job here. the story as many others have said does have some similarity to ET but at the same time it's completely different.
The story focuses around a group of friends who are making a monster movie for a film competition using a super 8 camera when they witness a train crash and something escapes from the crash.
The film focuses on the air force trying to cover up what escaped the relationships between the kids,Joe and the strained relation ship with his Dad, and Alice and the strained relationship with her Dad and why the two parents are against their children socializing. their are a few issues in the film that the film covers very well in particular loss of a loved one. their is also a blossoming relationship between Alice and Joe (the two lead actors) their are some truly heart arming scenes between these two and Ellie Fielding really flexes her acting muscles to deliver a toatly engaging performance.
I cant really do it justice in a review so I guess you'll just have to buy it and now that it's only £2.99 you really hav eno reason not to it really is one of the best underrated films of the last 10 years.
