First Reactions To JJ Abrams' Super 8

Much like X-Men: First Class, the actual reviews for the movie are embargoed until June 1st, but that hasn't stopped various sites from letting us know what they think of it. Click for some first reactions..

Here are just a few quotes from around the web. They are all very positive for the most part..



Slashfilm: Loved it, they don’t make these types of movies anymore. The best thing I can say about the film is that I loved the characters/setting/tone so much that I probably would have enjoyed it just as much as a Stand By Me-like coming of age drama without the sci-fi/train crash/action. Its one of those films that feels like it was made just for me. (someone asked if its more E.T. or Cloverfield, I responded: It’s Cloverfield with the characters and setting of E.T.(

FirstShowing: absolutely loved it, lived up to my high expectations. Felt like watching an Amblin classic. Of course, it’s expected I’d love it, considering how excited I was for it, but yes, it’s that good. Really need to see it again!

Collider: It’s great. Made me feel like a kid again

Jen Yamato: I enjoyed Super 8′s Goonies vibe; the kids are great. Has its problems, but none are deal breakers for me…though they will be for others.

LA Times Hero Complex: Remember how the academy expanded the best picture race to include crowdpleasers and sublime spectacle films? Meet “Super 8″…

JRothC: It was everything I wanted it to be. A coming-of-age sci-fi adventure like the classics I love. Super 8′s great for older kids AND grown-ups who long for the classic sci-fi films of the late ’70s and ’80s. Longer review to come — but I loved it — think you will too!
