Super 8 has the cast of young characters working on a film on there Super 8 camera when they witness a huge train crash occur and by huge I mean huge. The train crash sequence in it self was a triumph with its ability to get your heart racing and yet still keep the innocence of the characters rolling.

Super 8 also match's the period not only feeling and sounding like a late 70's early 80's movie it also looks it. Everything from the camera movement to the filters used makes Super 8 more and more faithful to the period. Though of course it wasn't shot on Super 8 and thus the film looks crisp and clear but still all the above makes it a great fitting for the time.

Super 8 is a fantastic movie that all can enjoy and even though the later half let me down quite a bit on the fantastic experience I was having, it really is a type of film that hasn't been experienced for some time.
