Super 8 Review

30 06 2011

Below is a review of Super 8, which was published in the Gilsbar, Inc. bi-weekly newsletter. Pretty big deal my friends, this girl is going places. Haha!

Really though, if you haven’t seen the movie yet, read the below, go see it, and then let me know I changed your mind. Or don’t, but go see it either way, you won’t regret it.

Super 8, starring Joel Courtney, Elle Fanning, and a lovable cast of ragamuffin kids, brings to mind all of the best of Steven Spielberg and J.J. Abrams. Super 8 follows a group of young friends as they spend their summer making a movie on Super 8 film, called The Case. This hilarious film-within-a-film takes these friends throughout their small town, and puts them in the middle of an adventure they never could have expected.

While this summer’s next big hit is in a lot of ways similar to other summer hits from years past, it does a good job focusing on the relationships between the characters without getting too wrapped up in the action. I would highly recommend this movie to film fans of all ages (though I wouldn’t bring a child under the age of 13, as some of the action is intense). If you’ve ever felt nostalgic for movies of your youth and miss the excitement of a good old-fashioned summer, than Super 8 is the film for you.
