A teen gang in south london defend their block from an alien invasion.
Editor's Note
A group of London teens find themselves in the middle of an alien invasion and fight to defend their tower block from some evil extraterrestrials in this stylish sci-fi romp from the producers of SHAUN OF THE DEAD and SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD. Beset by a gang of young thugs as she passes through a South London housing estate, Sam (Jodie Whittaker) is in the midst of being robbed when a ball of light falls out of the sky, and destroys a nearby car. Frightened, she flees from the scene just before an unearthly beast emerges from the wreckage and attacks Moses (John Boyega), the leader of the youthful gang. In retaliation, Moses and his crew slay the creature, and take it to a local drug den owned by ruthless gangster Hi-Hatz (Jumayn Hunter) for safe keeping. Later, as the police assist Sam in pursuing her assailants, strange lights start to rain down on the streets, heralding the arrival of a second, more ferocious, wave of creatures. With the city under siege, there's no place left to run. Quickly realizing she's going to have to fight if she wants to survive, Sam once again crosses paths with the street-tough teens, but instead of running away vows to battle alongside them to the bitter end. Meanwhile, Moses becomes the primary target of the aliens, and the group arms themselves with everything from baseball bats to high-powered fireworks in the fight to save the human race.

Expert Review Attack the Block - DVD Review
filmcritic.com DVD Reviews
Published on: 10/25/2011 4:00 AM
If Super 8 left you hungry for more eighties-style gaggles of kids on a fantastical adventure in their hometown, Attack the Block will probably tide you over. Continuing the burgeoning subgenre of movies that are vaguely inspired by and decidedly superior to The Goonies, this film by first-time director Joe Cornish follows an alien invasion in a U.K. inner-city housing complex; it's a bit like Goonies and War of the Worlds filtered through the original English version of Skins (which one of the characters makes direct reference to) -- though that high-concept description does little justice to the film's many charms....read the full review

Total Film

Sight and Sound
"Cornish draws superb performances out of his inexperienced central quintet, especially John Boyega and Alex Esmail....Films this cine-literate are rarely this unpretentiously enjoyable..." 06/01/2011

Box Office
