Poorly edited and rather unoriginal movie

No, I would not recommend this product.
Review For: Super 8 (DVD, 2011)

I bought this dvd based on positive reviews here on ebay. But to tell you the truth, I found this movie boring, predictable, with stereotypical relationships. It could easily have been edited down by 25 minutes or more.

You don't get to see a clear view of the alien until the +/- 70 minute mark, which is never a good sign. That ploy has been used to create artificial suspense so many times, you have to wonder if it's in some alien movie playbook. At the finale of the movie, the alien has the power, or technology, to miraculously magnetize assorted metal objects together to make a functioning spacecraft. Yet at no other time in the movie had it displayed this ability. It's just shown as a hideous, grunting creature out of it's element with incredible strength

Super 8 is another Hollywood cookie-cutter production based more on hype and less on plot and content, much like disappointments such as Cloverfield and Skyline. It's almost as if the producers thought the schtick of having aliens in the movie would be enough to carry it.

Review For: Super 8 (DVD, 2011)

Super 8 seems very good, have closed caption (CC) included but this movie almost alike "Stand By me" in 1980's. Pretty surprised me how foul words kids use which should not because this movie is PG rate, I threw it away to destory so kids won't watch this. Super 8 is no longer popular. Please do not buy Super 8, it is terrible kids say some foul words that you won't real like it.

Just because Steven Spielburg is on the cover doesn't guarantee a good show

No, I would not recommend this product.
Review For: Super 8 (DVD, 2011)

I received "Super 8" as a gift and I'm sorry to say it is technically one of the worst moves I have had the displeasure to watch. The plot is convoluted and the dialog is shallow and abusive. Save your money. Don’t buy this loser.
