Critic Reviews for Attack the Block
Attack the Block is essentially an action thriller and as such is effective.
Attack the Block lingers with you. Cornish is a formidable filmmaker and Boyega is an outstanding talent.
Poses a tongue in cheek question - "What's scarier, hostile extra-terrestrials or black youth?" - and then riffs on the sad reality that many people would say the latter.
Attack the Block isn't a great movie, but it's fueled by a sense of energy that still makes it somewhat irresistible regardless of its (sometimes far too obvious) flaws.
Audience Reviews for Attack the Block
This deserves a place in the pantheon of outstanding directorial debuts.
A Goonies, Gremilins and Kill Bill Mix that is just great.
Well I watched it. All of it. It definitely was interesting. Within the first minute I had to put on the subtitles, because I had NO idea what language they were speaking. Apparently, South London has their own style of English...gibberish. The movie itself was kind of fun, in a way. I guess. It definitely was different. Made me laugh a few times..that's always good.
