The story doesn’t quite hold together once the sickly sweet, E.T. reminiscent finale arrives… but it doesn’t really matter. Stick around during the end credits to see the real reason why Super 8 is one of 2011’s best films – I can imagine each of the child actors involved in this project going on to do truly great things. A funny, heart-warming, scary and exciting film that is destined to become a bona fide classic in years to come. They just don’t make them like this anymore!
