2.5 starsSuper 8 - 6/11/2011

Sarah and I went to Movies 10 to see Super 8.  This Sci-Fi mystery thriller from director J.J. Abrams and producer Steven Spielberg starred a group of newcomers.

The story takes place in 1979 in a small Ohio town.  The movie was hyped as if it would be a return to the earlier thrillers of Spielberg.  And parallels Spielberg's youth as a group of young boys using Super 8 film to make their own movie.  Then accidentally capture a train crash with their camera.  Soon afterwards, unusual disappearances and inexplicable events begin to take place in the area.

The film has a good story, a great cast, directing and special effects.  The suspense is never up to the level I was expecting from Spielberg and Abrams.  The ending of the movie was a bit of a let down.

You might want to go check it out.  This is still a good movie.
