Critic Review - NYC Movie Guru

An underwhelming sci-fi adventure with nifty special effects and strong performances by its child actors, but it's weakened by a bland, uneven screenplay that lacks palpable thrills, suspense and internal logic.

Fully agree. Just a mishmash of ET and Close Encounters with some Alien thrown in for suspense.

Oh gimme a break on that score, 5.021.../10, round it down and make it 5/10.

Jackass 3-D. Really? Jackass 3-D was a better film than Super 8?

Disagree on all counts. Also, it's mainly a drama, it's not meant to get you to jump 6 feet in the air.

WTH? How did this critic round his rating off to the nearest 100 millionth decimal place lol. It actually is the 100 millionth decimal place if you check. Does he think it makes him look smarter? because his picture makes him look like a douchebag.
