Super 8 Delights Audience with Great Characters and Superb Suspense

It’s rare that I see a movie twice in the theater. That’s precisely what I did for “Super 8,” acting like a teenage boy that movie theaters seek to attract. So why did I break my rules for this exceptional film? First, the central characters of 12 year olds achieve great ensemble acting rarely seen among adult actors and bring fun, passion and true feelings to their characters, particularly Elle Fanning.

Second, this film moves back to the suburbs of 1979, a simpler time, without nostalgia but with realism. Third, Steven Spielberg returns to his roots and delivers a better story than “E.T.” or “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” through this more imaginative movie. (I know Mr. Spielberg was the producer, not the director which was J.J. Abrams, but his fingerprints are all over it.)

So without revealing too much of the intriguing plot, once the kids start their film rolling at midnight in the local train station to its touching conclusion, you’re in for a great two hours. I’d recommend this film to anyone with imagination from five to 95.
