From critically acclaimed director J.J. Abrams (Lost, Star Trek) and Oscar Winning producer Steven Spielberg (Jurassic Park, Saving Private Ryan) comes this action-packed science fiction thriller.
It's summer 1979, and a group of friends from Ohio are in the middle of making their own student film. While shooting a scene at a nearby train station one night, things take a drastic turn for the worse and the group of friends witness a devastating train crash. Soon after, they begin to notice strange happenings around their town as people begin disappearing and inexplicable events begin to occur.
Disturbed by what they have seen, the kids set out on a dangerous mission to investigate into this spine-chilling phenomenon and uncover the truth. But what they unearth proves to me much more sinister than they ever imagined. -M.F.

For the first occasion in a long time it feels like I've watched a real film. Not just special effects that look amazing (although there are). Not just dialogue for dialogue's sake. A proper story, characters, action, intrigue, rights of passage. A proper film that even my wife enjoyed - and something I wish I'd seen at the cinema.
Super 8 is clearly a love letter to movies of the past, and yes, the times themselves when those movies were playing in cinemas. You will most likely enjoy this movie if you grew up watching ET, Stand By Me and The Goonies. I mention ET before the others because it bears more than a passing similarity to it. Spielberg was even the producer of Super 8, which I find amusing. Picture quality is great on the Blu-ray, coupled with very clear and deep sound quality. This produces a very good home theatre experience. For example the famous train derailment scene is breathtaking, even on a small TV screen. There's a nice amount of extras on the disc, with enough to satisfy the fans.
Super 8 - Triple Play is an excellent movie.
Loved this film so thought I'd buy triple-play so I can also watch it on my laptop or iPad too. Highly recommended.
Watched this in the cinemas when it came out, didn't have high hopes for it.. But its defiantly worth the watch, any sci-fi fan out there will enjoy the interesting take on a group of nerds in a small town. Though it was very well done, some normal predictable plots and all but all in all pretty good! 3/5
I found Super 8 slow in more than one part, but there is enough to keep you watching. Will watch it again at some point to get a better understanding of the film.
Super 8 is a fantastic tale of a group of budding movie makers who discover something terrible has escaped from a train wreck. Owes a debt to the likes of ET and The Goonies. Even better on Blu-ray.
Super 8 is really cool due to its story and brilliant special effects. It's well worth watching, and even better at Zavvi's cool price.
super 8 felt like a mix between the rail-road children (although I only knew about that through family guy) and darker ET. really good film and I really recommend watching it.
A fantastic film. Great for kids and Adults alike really, so a good one for a family film night. Also good to put on to entertain the kids when you're busy or have other people's children round, since not that many people have seen it before. Enjoyable, as well as being well directed (of course it is, it is Spielberg).
This film is absolutely brilliant in its genre, as you would expect from Spielberg and Abrahms. The actors, even the kids, in fact especially the kids are amazing. Compared to modern day child actors in blockbusters like Harry Potter, these guys are just so talented! It definitely captures the fun loving spirit of childhood and that sense of wonder at mysteries. A lovely film for the family and one to relive the feeling of being that young again!
Super 8 has a good story with very good actors. The sound is mindblowing in the scenes with the train crash.
I loved Super 8! It had me smiling all the way through. It was great!
