J.J. Abrams and Steven Spielberg join forces in this extraordinary tale of youth, mystery and adventure. Super 8 tells the story of six friends who witness a train wreck while making a super 8 movie, only to learn that something unimaginable escaped during the crash. They soon discover that the only thing more mysterious than what it is, is what it wants. Experience the film that critics rave is "filled with unstoppable imagination and visual effects to spare. It will put a spell on you." – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone.

    If you are a mature human being who is well balanced DO NOT watch this you will not like it. If you are immature and have a poor IQ - watch this you will like it

  • ET went home ...

    By Landshark2007
    What a complete waste of time, money and effort. It had its moment - the one that they show in the trailer, but apart from that, it just goes on and on and on. I was sorry for my computer that it had to put its pixels through it ...

  • Just not very good - & a warning to parents...

    By Colin Darby
    Not a very good film overall - i's very dark film (literally and figuratively), the children in it are not believable (they act like adults most of the time), the central premise (the monster) is not well done, (it actually kills and eats humans but somehow befriends the central character at the end), and it pushes the boundaries of what's acceptable for this age range. All in all, it feels like a very gory adult film, with most of the gore cut out (not all of it I warn you), and all the adults replaced with children. I warn parents - there are some very upsetting scenes in this film, and it's a very odd film for a 12A - would have been a 15 when I was young if it were released in the same decade it's set (the 80s).

    If you haven't seen The Goonies, Lost, Cloverfield, E.T, Close Encounters etc etc then you'll love this film. If you have you won't miss much skipping past this one. Great script, great acting and directing, but we've seen it all before and you would expect so much more from these heavyweight directors.
  • The best film I've seen in ages
