  their free time filming a zombie
  movie. Tension mounts though when
  Charles (Riley Griffiths) casts Alice
  (Elle Fanning) as the lead female
  role. Joel (Joe Lamb) develops
  an instant crush on the beautiful
  but troubled Alice and rift begins
  between the two friends. While
  filming the most important scene for
  the movie, a train is derailed and the
  kids scatter through a furious fire-
  storm of boxed cars and exploding
  locomotives. Something fearsome
  escapes from the train into the night
  and the military swarms in. People
  start to disappear and the once quiet
  Midwestern town is suddenly envel-
  oped in mystery.
     Director J.J. Abrams does a brilliant
  job of building suspense early in the
  movie through queues taken from
  Jaws, showing the aftermath of the
  escaped alien rather than revealing the
  creature full on. The town is caught
  in a quagmire of fear and confusion,
  scrambling for an explanation and rail-
  ing against the military.
     What really drives the movie are
  the relationships between the young
  heroes and their parents. The death
  of Joel’s mother has left him in the
  custody of his stepfather, who views
  his son’s filmmaking as a waste of
  time. Alice’s own father feels guilty
  in the death of Joel’s mother and
  forbids Alice from being with Joel.
  This fuels a rebellion that leads to
  disastrous results.
     For a movie that hits all the right
  notes, it still seems to be lacking in
  stark originality. The movie pins
  down the Spielberg summer block-
  buster formula perfectly but doesn’t
  breathe enough fresh air into the
  genre to stand out on its own. The

  ending is a bit rushed, if not overly
  cliché, which is a shame, given
  Abram’s talent as a director (he
  single handedly made Star Trek cool
  again).                                                        2532 Old US 23 • P Box 129 • Hartland • 810-632-5161

  summer film, especially before the
