Excerpt: Entertaining and tightly paced, this is only let down by some weak acting in places. Give the inexperience of the cast, this is to be expected and it is never severe enough to spoil the film. The lead is also very strong here. Some clever editing and darkness helps to mask the low budget, and there are some great tense moments and scares.
Summary: The story is about aliens decide to invade the UK, a gang of South London teens bands together to protect their neighborhood. This movie was Bad-ass and sweet. the charterers are hard to like at the first but they got more likable thought out the film.
Excerpt: When aliens invade a council estate in South London, a gang of local teenagers band together to defend their tower block. The idea behind this film has a lot of comic potential and the fact that Attack The Block was written and directed by Joe Cornish from cult TV skit show The Adam & Joe show meant I was looking forward to it immensely.
Summary: This movie deserves multiple Academy Awards. I have yet to see any film that has captured the social climate in the most unique possible way. The remarks regarding police action in Britain, as well as volunteering for Red Cross in some 3rd World area just "to get a good tan" were definitely deliberate and proudly blatant. There are 3rd World conditions in Britain as well as the US. I love the interesting timing of this movie. The London Riots took place in the Councils.
Excerpt: this movie is amazing, it was a blind watch, once i saw it, it became my favorite movie, its great, good story, great action, some funny parts, some people might not like it, because the british accent is really heavy on this, but its a great movie and i highly recommend it
Summary: A group of silly teenagers tripping out at night discover an extraordinary creature which comes down from above. Only later that night they realize that several more of that creature's kind will come down on their block. *** What kept me watching this movie was that the alien "invasion" remained a mystery until the group of teenagers figured it out. The action and thrill are sure to be enjoyed by many. But it is really the interesting story that holds the audience.

Excerpt: Heard about this movie from Joblo as it was gaining steam via the film festivals. It was not released near me so I redboxed this movie when it was released and was not dissapointed in any way with this movie. Its def not for everyone but this movie is fantastic fun! If you cant get your head around British movies then don't even watch it as its a thich British tongue they speak. For what I am sure was probably a lower budget movie it looks and sounds fantastic on blu.
Summary: I saw some of the reviews and thought: well let's go and see this funny, sci-fi comedy..... I got bored the first five minutes... What funny?? the next five minutes I got more bored and even irritated. Slow, not funny at all. E.T. was more fun and that was a verry long time ago. So sorry guys, no points, can not go below 0!
