FUN, AND WORTH A LOOK
Abrams wrote the film and directed it, and it was produced by Spielberg. It's a good "coming of age" film, plus it has lots of explosions and fun sci-fi stuff. The kid actors in it are good, and the dialog between them is hilarious in places.
This one should rank up there with some of the better things Spielberg has been associated with. And of course Abrams is pretty amazing in his own right, as the creator of lots of thing, including "Lost", "Alias", "Fringe", "Undercovers", and "Cloverfield".
It's hard not to like "Super 8". Give it a try!
