The kids have no effect on the story, not the military's interference in the accident clean up, not the finale, etc. Even the Super 8 reel doesn't change their behavior, so it's almost as if the entire movie is a MacGuffin.
You are a MacGuffin!!!

Yup, just Cloverfield in the 70's plus a Fanning. Nothing new or valuable here.

Excellent observation. This one was so disappointing, I was almost angry.
