Super 8 (2011)

Super 8

Director: J.J. Abrams

Writer: J.J. Abrams

I like Abrams as a director and he comes up with great concepts but it seems like pretty much every story he works on they fall flat in the ending.  Super 8 has a great premise and a great cast.  I really really love the story for this movie.  Something happens though in the 3rd act and it transforms into an alien rampaging and eating people movie.  All the nice character work that was setup disappears.  I guess it would be exciting to some in the moment but it just kind of lost me.  Not enough to ruin the movie, but enough to make me hesitate before saying I liked it.  Worth watching but it certainly has issues.
