Summer of 1979, a bunch of kids playing with cameras, aspiring to make a great movie with their Super 8 cameras. Couldn't they know they would be playing the film of their lives when they uncover a secret operation involving alien intelligence.The film brings the 80's spirit and something that I quite miss seeing in movies and in actual kids nowadays...a little of audacity and creativity that only kids can turn into something pure and yet challenging. An event occurs, they have it in their cameras, yet all happens so fast... mysterious things which the government hides from the civilians, finally only to uncover that the government is always to blame. All in all the film is very good, good story, with a revival of the old days and old cinema. And just to remark: Elle Fanning will have such a career, the looks, the talent and that voice, beware people!!! Hope she will have the luck to have good roles in the future.
