IMDB User Review About This Movie
I was fortunate enough to see a screening this morning in DC. I had pretty high hopes for it from what I saw from the trailers. I don’t lean one way or the other when it comes to Abrams, some of his stuff I like, some of it I don’t. Super 8 is one that I loved.
In the current era of CGI-laden, soul-dead adventure flicks, Super 8 distinguishes itself by having a heart. There is an authenticity to those kids in the film, a familiarity in their conversations. It reminded me of when I was a kid. It was like ET meets Goonies meets The Sandlot. And the film that they are trying to make within the film, and their obsession with “production values” draws a lot of laughs.
The friendship between the kids in the film really resonates, and the emotional elements of the film totally deliver. One of the most poignant scenes in the film has nothing to do with what’s in the train car or the air force, and anything like that….rather, it’s a scene that takes place in Joe’s bedroom as he sits on the floor talking to Alice.
Now, as much as I loved the film, it is not without some flaws, mostly in continuity. Also, I would have liked a little more exposition for some of the characters, I would love to know more about Alice’s father. That being said, I am forgiving on those things because the movie hits its mark everywhere else.
Surely it will draw its comparisons to ET, and the other early Spielberg works, but those comparisons will always be unfair. Those films came at a different time. And the people who see Super 8 today, have changed since they first saw ET or any of those other films. I am just glad the generation of younger people will have this as a generational film for them, as I had with those other great adventure films.
All in all, Super 8 was a terrific film experience, that will leave you with a smile on your face.
