Super 8 is a bit of a frustrating movie. It's well-paced, emotional, and captures a certain innocence of pre-pubescent youth, without becoming too cheesy.

This might not be the most original piece of work, but it's one of those films that show that sometimes familiar can be a good thing.

Super 8 is pretty much awash in charm.

The kids are the true stars here.

The trouble is that the answer awaiting at the end of Super 8 simply isn't very satisfying. But don't let that put you off, because the journey to get to this disappointment is a rewarding one.

It's impossible not to get caught up in Abrams' nostalgia for summer days at the Cineplex gone by.

No it's not a masterpiece - but it's a solid little movie, and I'd highly recommend it.

The movie doesn't have all the elements necessary to make it a true classic, but there are some admirable things it accomplishes, especially when the enthusiastic kids are at the forefront.

I really enjoyed Super 8. Kind of loved it, even.

Like Silly Putty, Super 8 is silly fun. It stretches, snaps, and bounces. It's as elastic as pubescent imagination.

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

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.

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

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

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.

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