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.
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.
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.
