Rated 4.3 out of 5★ by 9reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5★ by SimsForever Super 8 For all it's worth, this movie was good. The heroes and heroine are middle school age children so the story would appeal more to that age group. The special affects are amazing. It is full of action and not so much character development. In one critique someone wrote the story line was compared to the movie ET. Well, ET on steroids that eats people for lunch, maybe. After that 'brief human munching' scene I was rooting for the Military victory regardless of the 'unfortunate alien experiment misunderstanding and now he hates us'. 01/20/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by NewPhilaMan Great Movie! Movie has great effects, and the multi-disc format made it a real bargain. However, delivery of product could be faster. 11/27/2011
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Thud120 Pretty Good The effects were stunning, as was the sound and overall look of the film. The actors though young seemed to fit the rolls they played quite well. However the only one that stood out was the young lady, sorry I don't remember her name. The plot was somewhat simplistic and the story tended to be too slow in places. However it is a good movie. 12/07/2011
Rated 5 out of 5★ by misnblu Just Wow This movie is just WOW.I've watched this three times now, twice on blu-ray, and once on my phone. This movie is that good.JJ Abrams and Steven Spielberg hit this movie perfectly. The cast is perfection with all the kids clicking like they've know each other for years.Fantastic story line, film making, and action to keep you breathless the entire time you're watching.Plus the love story behind it all falls into play as most of the Spielberg movies do. So well done.Highly recommended movie. A must see. 01/17/2012
Rated 4 out of 5★ by ForKingandCountry Great movie, over exceeded my expectations! This deal from walmart way over exceeded my expectations. I ordered a blu-ray and dvd and I got a blu-ray, dvd, digital copy, and case sleeve! Pretty awesome to me! Movie is great too, if that matters! Seemed like they didn't cut corners, which always makes a movie tons better. Acting was pretty good, story line was apparent! It wasn't a "just say something while I film!" type of movie at all. I do recommend it! 12/08/2012
