Review Of : SUPER 8

Bookmark and Share

Directed By J.J. Abrams.

Acted By Joel Courtney, Elle Fanning, Amanda Michalka and Kyle Chandler.

Storyline goes by : In the summer of 1979, a group of friends in a small Ohio town witness a catastrophic train crash while making a super 8 movie and soon suspect that it was not an accident. Shortly after, unusual disappearances and inexplicable events begin to take place in town, and the local Deputy tries to uncover the truth - something more terrifying than any of them could have imagined.

A very good film. 

An simple but interesting storyline & suspense plot. 
In my opinion, the film's setting & style is sort of like of E.T. but 
more of a mysterious sci-fi thriller.
I'm not surprised, this is because the movie is written & directed by J.J. Abrams which he is also the producer of the TV series "FRINGE".

An interesting film not to be missed. :)

My Rating?

Plot : 4.75/5
Storyline : 4/5
Acting* : 4.75/5 
Cinematography*** : 4.5/5 
OVERALL : 9/10.
