Attack the Block (2011)

This action-packed English export lends an urban edge to the Science Fiction genre as Moses and his gang of underage punks are left to save the projects after alien invaders ATTACK THE BLOCK! Moses and his mates arm themselves with an array of heavy weapons, spouting out hip pop culture references as they hack and slash their way to safety. Joe Cornish's kinetic shooting style is fresh and fast-paced, taking off after the menacing four-legged aliens at electric speeds. These jet-black beasts are unlike anything we have seen before, and make for frightening new villains. Hidden beneath the fun and excitement on screen lies a biting social commentary that strikes at the sad economic and racial climate facing England's inner city youth. The clever combination of lighthearted humor, action, and fantasy horror works to elevate an otherwise average plot above the other Sci-Fi films of its kind.

Rating: 8/10.

    NO my old mucker, we most certainly CANNOT, i thought the American remake was infinitely superior. The British made original is one of the most ludicrously over-rated piles of horse-shit in the entire history of cinema. The ONLY good thing about it was that gorgeous bird who was the body double for Britt Ekland, that birds arse was quite ass-tonishing.
