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 really good things about this flick, I was quite eager to check it out. Furthermore, since it was dealing with an alien invasion,  Nick, my step-son, was even more enthusiast than I was so we basically had to watch it as soon as possible. Eventually, it was really similar to  'Shaun of the Dead' except that ‘Shaun…’ was  an action horror comedy and this movie was... 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)

"Re-watch - Sept. 13th I've been wanting to revisit Attack the Block for a while now, so Prime having it gave me the opportunity to finally do so. It's so damn good, just fires on all cylinders from start to finish. I think it falls just shy of greatness for me, but I'd gladly sit through it many more times in the years ahead. I really need to buy a copy for my collection."

"A group of English gang-bangers find themselves trying to protect their turf against a buncha hairy ape-like aliens who seem to be brushing their teeth with the uber-maximum whitening power of Gleem. To be honest, when I did my list of fave films of 2011, I was kind of surprised to find that AtB was the film that I enjoyed most. There were a bunch of films that were released this year that are more well regarded by both critics and audiences alike. But I think, this was one of those rare year"

Slant's 100 Best Sci-Fi Movies of All Time (100 movies items)

"More Bloody Kids than Super 8, more Assault on Precinct 13 than Jumanji, and, in the end, more Be Kind Rewind than Adventures in Babysitting, Attack the Block distinguishes itself from its genre compatriots by prizing theme and place over referentiality and hip, out-of-the-box grindhouse-ness. Hidden beneath the surface of a highly effective theme-park ride is a plainspoken evocation of life lived by idle teens in Brixton, the sci-fi storyline extending directly from the directionless minors’ "

My Top 10 Favourite Movies of 2011 (11 movies items)

"I know it's strange putting a relatively unsubstantive film over a cinematic masterpiece like Tinker Tailor, but damn, it's just so much fun! Most people might opt for a big-budget Hollywood blockbuster, but this is my idea of simple entertainment: a relatively low-budget indie flick that's a tonne of fun to watch because you get the feeling that everyone was having a blast while making it. The fact that it's a relatively simple premise certainly helps: not too many distractions. So, watching th"
