Attack the Block (2011)
Critic Consensus: Effortlessly mixing scares, laughs, and social commentary, Attack the Block is a thrilling, brisky-paced sci-fi yarn with a distinctly British flavor.
From the producers of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, Attack the Block follows a gang of tough inner-city kids who try to defend their turf against an invasion of savage alien creatures, turning a South London apartment complex into an extraterrestrial warzone. -- (C) Sony Pictures

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.
