An entertaining, if slightly over-hyped, summer film featuring a strong cast of teenagers as they battle a mysterious force unleashed in their small town. There are plenty of jumps, laughs, and visuals to keep you entertained for the duration of the film. Unfortunately, the ending just didn't do it for me, as the film took a different tone that was absent for much of the film. I'm trying to keep that as vague as possible so not to spoil anything, but let's just say I was feeling the heart-warming finale Abrams was going for. Stick through the credits, as you get to see the film the youngsters are making throughout. It's the best part of the experience.
