A good movie

Since I kept hearing 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 obvisously reminiscent of 'Shaun of the dead' as it is an action horror comedy combining this time a hood flick with an alien invasion. The only thing they maybe were missing here was some star power. I mean, 'Shaun of the dead' was pretty awesome above all thanks to Simon Pegg and Nick Frost (who had a small part here as well but he was barely used). The young boys are all pretty good and deliver some decent performances but, honestly, they didn't have such a charisma. Still, I really enjoyed it. I thought it was very well made, clever with some funny dialogs with some awesome British humor. Of course, the whole Alien invasion has been done to death and they don't actually add much to the formula but they followed the rules of the genre and it worked pretty well. To conclude, even if it was nothing really mind-blowing, I really had a good time watching it and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you enjoyed 'Shaun of the dead'.
