Movie Summary

Director:
Joe Cornish
Released:
2011
Rating:
R
From the producers of Shaun of the Dead, ATTACK THE BLOCK is a fast, funny, frightening action adventure movie that pits a teen street gang against an invasion of savage alien monsters. It turns a London housing project into a sci-fi battleground, the low-income apartment complex into a fortress under siege. And it turns a crazy mix of tough street kids into a team of kick ass heroes. It's inner city versus outer space and it's going to explode.

  • 80

    Los Angeles Times

    Pulsing with a rowdy energy, the film works as both a sci-fi horror flick and a teen adventure film.

  • 80

    Variety

    Brit comedian-TV presenter Joe Cornish emerges fully formed as an exciting new writer-helmer with his enormously appealing debut feature, Attack the Block.
