Plot Summary

From the producers of Shaun of the Dead, ATTACK THE BLOCK is a fast, funny, frightening action adventure movie that pits a teen street gang against an invasion of savage alien monsters. It turns a London housing project into a sci-fi battleground, the low-income apartment complex into a fortress under siege. And it turns a crazy mix of tough street kids into a team of kick ass heroes. It’s inner city versus outer space and it’s going to explode.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Science-fiction buffs seeking a change of pace and fans of British pop culture shouldn't miss it. – Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com, Jul 31, 2011

Fresh: Irreverently funny without ever being spoofy...The one-liners are hilarious, and Cornish has a deft touch at weaving social commentary on urban gentrification into the narrative. – Ian Buckwalter, NPR, Jul 29, 2011

Fresh: It's a doozy, offering tight and imaginative camerawork, electric thrills, and a sharp, twisty script that plays like a social satire. – Bruce Diones, New Yorker, Aug 8, 2011

Fresh: It's wall-to-wall sci-fi pop-culture bric-a-brac, yet it feels organic. There's something more at stake than the fate of a movie-ish Earth. – David Edelstein, New York Magazine, Jul 31, 2011

Loads of Fun!

This was a great Alien comedy.
Lots of funny dialogues & the acting was great!

Oh forgot to mention, the special effects are AMAZING.

Wonderful

Can't even begin to describe it. The best scifi horror comedy I've seen in a very long time, and it felt more like The Wire than a genre film. Great stuff. Watch it now!

Attack The Block: the coolest movie of 2011!

Scares, laughs, and gore. Believe the hype and watch this movie. BELIEVE BRUVS!!
