Critic Reviews for Attack the Block
Attack the Block is essentially an action thriller and as such is effective.
Here is a shaggy monster movie that pulls double-duty as a satire of class and ethnic barriers, and how those barriers quickly disappear when we are forced to fight for our simple survival.
Attack the Block attacks the alien invasion genre with wit, energy and a cheeky insolence that makes it out of this world.
An energetic genre ride with social ambitions about race and class.
"Attack the Block" demands to be seen simply because it is a thrill - a pulse-raiser whose perfect construction and pointed wit make it one of the year's most exciting films.
The movie's amateurishly made. But the script is full of little surprises.
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.
