Redbox reviews Super 8:
This film is not your traditional sci-fi movie. In fact, you can’t even tell it is a sci-fi film until well over halfway through it. The special effects are gripping and will keep you on the edge of your seat. Although teenagers, Joel Courtney and Elle Fanning’s acting makes the film worth watching alone. The two are very talented and undoubtedly have successful careers in the film business. The movie is full of clever jokes and plot twists.
The movie lives up to the claim of being the 2011 blockbuster of the summer. If you are looking for an action packed film that will make you feel like a kid again, as well as scare the heck out of you, then rent “Super 8.”
