If imitation is the best form of flattery, than Abrams nailed it. What he nailed, unfortunately, is not an original film, rather a homage to Steven Spielberg, who he clearly idolizes. Not a good film, IMHO -- kind of like The Goonies meets Raiders of the Lost Ark meets Close Encounters of the Third Kind. It starts off well, and then about a half hour into it you realize, horribly, where it's going. I watched it to the end just to watch the entire film but had my head in my hands most of the time. Stereotypical characters, and again, a story airbrushed from about 10 others -- that, quite frankly, were done much better. I love J.J. Abrams (the re-booted Star Trek, Fringe, Cloverfield) but this was disappointing.

I was curious about this movie, but a little skeptical. Got it as a Christmas gift. It turned out to be really good. Great story, wonderful acting (very impressive from kids that age).....the time just flew by.
