Super 8: I Finally Get It

I finally understand the trailers and the mystery of the movie Super 8. The movie was actually pretty good, too. This is a movie that you should go to if you like "monster" movies. "After witnessing a mysterious train crash, a group of friends in the summer of 1979 begin noticing strange happenings going around in their small town, and begin to investigate into the creepy phenomenon" (
At the start of the movie, the main character, Joe (Joel Courtney) is at the funeral of his mother. The story then jumps to four months later at the start of summer vacation. Joe and his friends a filming a zombie movie and they as a girl from school, Alice (Elle Fanning), to help them. They go to film at a train station at midnight. While filming, a truck runs into the train and crashes it. The air force owns the train and is all over the town. No one knows what is happening. Joe's dad, Jackson (Kyle Chandler), is the town deputy and is trying to uncover the mystery of disappearances of people, pets, and anything electronic.
The movie covers up what the creature is and then after about 45 min, they finally revile what it is and you get a full on look at it (not like stupid movies like Cloverfield where you don't see practically any of the monster). They explain most of the questions and it all looks pretty good. The movie has little teenage love and family drama and tension and stuff. It was really good and one of the parts almost made me want to cry. It was good and I say go see it. The movie is rated PG-13 for action violence, a little gore, some drugs, there is a little profanity (I heard the f-word once but supposedly it was dropped twice, the s-word and other mild profanes), and the "monster" is a little scary. When I was at the movie, there were some little kids there, but I wouldn't recommend kids under like 10.
