About the Movie

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,, Oct 15, 2014

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: The movie's amateurishly made. But the script is full of little surprises. – Wesley Morris, Boston Globe, Aug 18, 2011

This movie was not Shaun of the Dead. This was not a funny movie. This was not a well-written or well-acted movie. This was not an entertaining movie. It was a was of time and money. Rotten tomatoes was way off on this one.
