Flawed but playful British alien invasion movie

"You'd be better off calling the Ghostbusters, love."

A curious mixture of The Goonies and War of the Worlds filtered through Assault on Precinct 13, Attack the Block is not exactly a typical alien invasion movie. Rather, this directorial debut for Joe Cornish is a more playful motion picture concerned with a bunch of British youths and stoners armed with whatever makeshift weapons ... read more

Basically, Shaun Of The Dead but with chavs.

To start off with, this really looked like your vintage alien-invasion film that is just a bit of fun nothing else. However, at first despite that the story is still a rather weak one, I did think that there is something special that Attack The Block will deliver or maybe even surprise the viewers. It really is the perfect film that one would describe as a film that is ridiculously stupid; but at ... read more

A good movie

Since I kept hearing some good things about this flick, I thought I should check it out. When Nick, my step-son, found out it was dealing with an alien invasion, he was even more enthusiastic than I was so we basically had to watch it as soon as possible. Of course, when watching this, it is obviously reminiscent of 'Shaun of the dead' as it is an action horror comedy combining this time a hood fl... read more

Description: A group of London teens find themselves in the middle of an alien invasion and fight to defend their tower block from some evil extraterrestrials in this stylish sci-fi romp from the producers of Shaun of the Dead and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. Beset by a gang of young thugs as she passes through a South London housing estate, Sam (Jodie Whittaker) is in the midst of being robbed when a ball of light falls out of the sky, and destroys a nearby car. Frightened, she flees from the scene just before an unearthly beast emerges from the wreckage and attacks Moses (John Boyega), the leader of the youthful gang. In retaliation, Moses ... (more)

"First viewing - Oct. 2nd/3rd - DVD from Xanadon't's collection Went into this one knowing nothing about it other than that a few people around here sang its praises after seeing it last year. So imagine my pleasant surprise upon finding I'd (unintentionally) perfectly paired it with Shaun of the Dead, what with it being a UK horror film with a supporting role by Nick Frost. That's not to say it's as good as Shaun of the Dead, but the films do complement each other well. I dug that the main cha"

"August 31 This was disappointing. I was just expecting a campy fun alien movie, but I barely got it. The tone of the movie was serious and I think the movie would be more fun with a campy tone because I think it took itself a bit too seriously. I also didn't care for the characters. This movie wasn't bad, but it wasn't as fun as it could've been."
