Super 8 Movie Review

Ratings:3.5/5 Reviewer:Rajeev Masand Site:IBNLive
Set in the late 70s, Super 8 is a gripping thriller from Lost creator JJ Abrams, that follows a bunch of school-going friends who accidentally capture footage of a major train crash while shooting a low-budget zombie film. Something escapes from the wrecked train, and pretty soon the army is crawling all over town. Then the plot goes all E.T. on us. It’s a good old-fashioned entertainer that delivers nifty special effects and gimmicks, but doesn’t let them get in the way of a solid, moving story. I’m going with three-and-a-half out of five for Super 8. Make sure you stay till the end credits for a clever surprise!

Ratings:4/5 Reviewer:Blessy Chettiar Site:DNA

Super 8, strongly visually reminiscent of Spielberg's '80s blockbusters, is a masterfully crafted film. There is an undeniable sincerity in it which is brought about by steadfast, evocative direction and flawless performances on the part of the kids. Every scene, be it one designed to have you laugh, cry or jump out of your seat, works.Though I wish that the coming-of-age-drama aspect of the film in all its tenderness tied in, on more levels, with its suspenseful, mystery-filled and action aspects, I cannot bring myself to deride Abram's ministrations. Super 8 is a superior film.

Ratings:3/5 Reviewer:Shubhra Gupta Site:IndianExpress

The problem with Super 8 is the different strands the film moves in, from these kids obsessed with zombie movies to the tension between Joe's and Alice's fathers due to an accident that killed Joe's mother, to the town that is shaken but strangely not scared, to a town meeting where someone suddenly screams "It's the Soviets!", to an Air Force (the film never explains why it alone is dealing with an admittedly serious problem) that seems like a vigilante outfit without any central control -- with the result that the film never comes around to the alien concerned till almost the end. As for the alien, it remains an alien, with two eyes, one flaring nostril, gigantic arms, a monstrous machine, and a vague agenda -- the universe after all is a big hole.
