Inside Pulse reviews "Super 8"
From Inside Pulse's Blu-ray Review of "Super 8"
Super 8 successfully walks this fine line of being both a character drama and a mystery for the first two thirds of the movie. I found myself heavily invested in the lives of the characters, particularly the lead character Joe and how he and his father were dealing with the loss of his mother. The tension between he and his father was perfectly handled – both trying to figure out how to handle each other but coming up short. And that served as a great backdrop for a tense search for the mysterious creature terrorizing this little Ohio town. It made for invigorating and addictive watching…and it bubbles up and up, too. As the attacks increase, so does the tension between Joe and his father.
