An idealistic and powerful summer film with great characters and a wonderful script.

Film Comment Magazine

While it may not achieve the level of pop culture canonization as the Spielberg films it invokes, Super 8 should inspire many to use their camera-phones for something more creative than a profile pic.

It wants to be Spielberg, needs to be Spielberg, begs to be Spielberg. But this ain't Spielberg.

Great action sequences and a touching story make Super 8 a great summer blockbuster.

Georgia Straight

This Spielbergian misstep by J. J. Abrams attempts to be the emotional coming-of-age equivalent of Stand by Me but instead winds up as a cacophonous mishmash of Goonies and War of the Worlds.

The movie of the summer, the movie of many summers, going back to the '70s...

Super 8 is undoubtedly one of the more robust summer blockbusters of the year, with enough momentum to get it over the finish line before you start asking more questions of it.

While it didn't turn out to be the great movie some thought it would be, "Super 8" still makes for an entertaining film

As much as we speak about E.T in glowing reflective terms, this generation in future will think back to the way that Super 8 touched them, scared them and made them laugh.

JJ Abrams' "thank you" to Steven Spielberg. It's like he said, "Thank you for making those movies while I was growing up. Now, here's what you inspired me to make". And it's a terrific ride that I can't wait to experience again.

Verdadero homenaje al cine de Spielberg, Super 8 empieza siendo E.T. (o al menos una digna heredera) y termina como La guerra de los mundos, donde lo espectacular y la resolución fácil toman la delantera. Aún así, un buen entretenimiento.

What Culture

J.J. Abrams demonstrates a real love for cinema - primarily Steven Spielberg's classic sci-fi pics - with this doting homage, which puts a frantic alien invasion plot secondary to an involving, emotionally resonant family narrative.

Super 8 works best when it isn't attempting to imitate '80s Spielberg.

Movie Metropolis

While it's often tense and exciting, it's also more than a little exaggerated and corny at the end. You take what you get.

Spectrum (St. George, Utah)

The potty-mouthed script deserves a parental warning and casts the only regretful shadow on an otherwise sterling popcorn adventure...

Shadows on the Wall

JJ Abrams and Steven Spielberg team up for this enjoyable alien thriller, which feels exactly how we nostalgically remember Spielberg's late-70s movies. But it's not nearly as earthy or thrilling as they actually were.

SFX Magazine

For big kids, a chance to relive the classic films that forged their love of sci-fi. For the kids of today, it's a film they'll want to show their kids another 30 years down the line.

Much richer, much deeper and much more moving than its 'monster movie' premise might suggest.
