2011 Certificate: 12


Star Trek director JJ Abrams returns to the sci-fi fray with this paranormally exciting adventure with loud echoes of his hit sci-fi production Cloverfield. In 1979, a bunch of young, aspiring film-makers find themselves at the scene of a train crash, the consequences of which wreak havoc on their little Ohio town. Seems the train was carrying highly classified cargo from Area 51, the military base specialising in UFO activity. But it's hard to see the contents staying classified for long... Steven Spielberg boards Abrams' all-action express as producer.
