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: 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: Attack the block is a comedy/horror/thriller action film about a gang of youths in South London who rob a helpless woman on her way home. A sudden explosion and something falling from the sky, allow the woman to escape. When the gang's leader, 15 year old Moses (John Boyega) checks what happened he is attacked by an extraterrestrial creature.
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!
Summary: A fantastically entertaining, exciting, and funny film that puts a new spin on the alien invasion story by pitting ferocious aliens against thuggish teenagers in South London. The film has been compared by some to Shaun of the Dead and, while I don't think it's as brilliant in lampooning its genre as that film is, it still manages to succeed at being simultaneously touching, funny, and adrenaline-pumping.
Summary: An OK movie thats good for a watch but I dont think it was as good as I kept hearing about.I almost found it boring at times & the kids to be annoying.The thing I really liked about Attack The Block was that the kids had the balls to face off with the aliens especially the 1st encounter because I know I'd run the other way
