Today, we are reviewing the newest Steven Spielberg film to hit theatres, "Super 8".
This science fiction film, directed by J.J. Abrams and produced by Steven Spielberg follows the story of a group of kids who are filming a Super 8 movie, when a train de-rails and releases a dangerous alien into their town.
This 112-minute long movie stars Joel Courtney, Elle Fanning, and Kyle Chandler and completely locks our eyes on the screen, with stunning visual effects, amazing acting, a revolutionary plot, and loveable characters. During the epic derail scene, we literally had our mouths hanging open, and we're surprised they could manage to create such an action-packed film with a budget of just $50 million.
You have to see this movie, no question. It's without a doubt the best movie of the year, so far.
