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.

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

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.
November 10, 2011
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.

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

Super 8 is accomplished commercial filmmaking.
September 22, 2011
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.

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.
August 15, 2011
The most authentic Spielberg film Spielberg never directed.
August 12, 2011
Vale mais pelo sentimento de nostalgia que inspira do que pela qualidade de sua narrativa.
August 10, 2011
The young cast are all outstanding, ably supported by the adults in the background, and the nostalgia of the piece is genuinely intoxicating.
August 10, 2011
An original, entertaining, solidly built movie with no star faces and plenty of heart...
