Our story takes shape as a group of teenaged friends are out one fateful night filming a Super 8 zombie move around their town. While staging a scene at a train station they witness a catastrophic train crash. Amazingly, the escape without a scratch.

Their discovery leads them to something inhuman. Super 8!
Is it worth your time? For me, and my two kids who accompanied me, it is an enthusiastic thumbs up, and then some. Super 8 is what movie going is all about. It does not disappoint on any level, and may deliver too much for some, both in extreme, unexpected jumps and occasional schmaltz.

I'm not much for sentimentality in a such themes, so was put off by a bit of corn toward the closing scenes. However, other than that (and teenagers who can be both a pleasure and frustration), I could not recommend it more. The acting is sound, the direction it first rate, and the imagery and lighting was made to order for photographers like myself.

Oh, be sure to sit around during the credits. There's a fun little ditty that's worth getting to the parking lot a little later.
