‘Super 8’ Is A Summer Blockbuster Just Like You Always Remembered

From indieWIRE:

Packed full of solid character actors, there are few, if any, weak links, with even supporting players leaving a solid impression (particularly Charles’ family, which in just a few scenes adds distinctly to the warmth of the movie.) The young stars of “Super 8,” many of them first timers, carry the film well, and the dynamic between the group of friends is “Sandlot” -comparison worthy. Fanning and Courtney shine in the leads; bringing a genuine heart to the love story at the center of the film
