Though it's not a pyrotechnic extravaganza like Star Trek, nor a seriously chilling character study like Let Me In, Super 8 does deliver likable, three-dimensional characters on a scary-fun adventure. No it's not a masterpiece — but it's a solid little movie, and I'd highly recommend it.


Special note: Don't forget to stay for the credits after the movie! You will be rewarded with awesomeness.
