Product Description

Attack the Block is a fast, funny, frightening action adventure movie that pits a teen gang against an invasion of savage alien monsters. It turns a London housing estate into a sci-fi playground. A tower block into a fortress under siege. And teenage street kids into heroes. It¹s inner city versus outer space.

Trainee nurse Sam is walking home to her flat in a scary South London tower block when she’s robbed by a gang of masked, hooded youths. She’s saved when the gang are distracted by a bright meteorite, which falls from the sky and hits a nearby parked car. Sam flees, just before the gang are attacked by a small alien creature that leaps from the wreckage. The gang chase the creature and kill it, dragging its ghoulish carcass to the top of the block, which they treat as their territory.

While Sam and the police hunt for the gang, a second wave of meteors fall. Confident of victory against such feeble invaders, the gang grab weapons, mount bikes and mopeds, and set out to defend their turf. But this time, the creatures are bigger. Much bigger. Savage, shadowy and bestial, they are hunting their fallen comrade and nothing will stand in their way. The estate is about to become a battleground. And the bunch of no-hope kids who just attacked Sam are about to become her, and the block’s, only hope.

From Amazon.co.uk

Full of gory practical effects and fluent pop-cultural references, Attack the Block--an alien invasion scenario squeezed into a single apartment building--belongs to the same species of British genre comedy as Edgar Wright's Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. Director Joe Cornish takes some clever routes around the limitations of his budget, filming on location in London's Heygate Estate (itself a once utopian science-fiction experiment) and mining the freshness of his young cast's authentic street slang. When the aliens arrive (they simply drop, during a frosty Bonfire Night, out of the shining pepper of the stars) they're also smartly designed: primal and supernatural, no detail escapes their digitally-blackened fur other than a set of menacingly glowing teeth, all of them incisors. The block's defence is up to a group of teenage hoods, lead by the imposing Moses (John Boyega) and reluctantly helped by middle-class neighbour Sam (Jodie Whittaker). Armed with fireworks and mounted on muscle bikes, they launch an entertaining and Spielbergian resistance through the block's labyrinth of corridors and walkways. As the body count racks up, Joe Cornish's smart script highlights the block's painful social divisions: Sam, the audience surrogate, is mugged by Moses' crew in the film's opening scene, and through Sam we're drawn into the poignant domestic lives of kids on the brink of gangsterism. More alien to each other than the beasts on their tail, the survival of these divided class members hangs on the recognition that they have a stake in each other. --Leo Batchelor

I enjoyed this film - I didn't think I would. The budget was obviously quite low, but the acting skills of 'drama school kids' wasn't so bad at all. Alot of this film seems to have been shot in the abandoned/derelict flats of the Heygate Estate in Elephant and Castle, London (I could be wrong though). Overall a solid 9/10 for effort on this one.

This is a wonderful little gem. John Boyega (just announced for Star Wars Episode VII) doesn't a brilliant job a Moses the leader this little gang of bad people who aren't as bad as they would like people around them to think.
The video and audio quality is great and the director creates a wonderfully atmosphere and some very interesting aliens with a pretty low budget.

This movie works great as a little sci-fi/horror/action movie and also works as a great showcase for Boyega if you're looking for some of his work before watching the next Star Wars.

Format: Blu-ray
A great little monster movie which when taken tongue in cheek is a lot of fun. The film packs a punch from the start and doesn't let up with the action.

A group of council estate kids swap their drug dealing and mugging for alien bashing when their tower block is invaded. Tooling up with baseball bats, knives and fireworks they take to the streets to fend off this threat.

Humour is the order of the day with nothing here to be taken seriously. The local lingo is captured to a tee and the kids, although in some respects are pretty stereotypical, offer enough character to draw you and egg them on.

The aliens themselves are a mix of curious and scary. They are a mass of black fur with little definition apart from their glowing gnashers which function as a handy way of upping the creepy atmosphere when their presence looms. They bound about with speed and agility and you never really know where they are going pop out from next.

Although this is a horror comedy of sorts it doesn't skimp on the gore either with some great gruesome moments. This is a great B-movie which is easily enjoyable and doesn't require much brain power!

Jodie Whittaker plays a nurse who is robbed while walking home by a gang of boys. During the robbery an alien crash lands nearby. Using knives, the gang manages to kill the alien while the victim nurse escapes. The kids carry around the body of the alien not knowing what to do with it. They end up at a flat (Ron's Weed Room) with a stoner who looks like a younger Ozzy (Nick Frost). The boys see more space aliens landing. All agog the gather ceremonial swords, clubs, Roman candles and a dog that looks like Spuds to go hunt aliens...only this time they are bigger and meaner, looking like hairy worgs with several rows of neon teeth that glow in the dark.

The boys run for their lives, along with the nurse, trying to avoid aliens, a rival gang, and cops. The aliens have no eyes and hunt by smell, which takes the gang a while to figure out. They are tracking down Moses, the gang leader who killed the first alien.

The movie had enough comedy to keep us entertained, while stopping short of being a comedy. There are brief moments of irony and juxtaposition to lets us know the writer and director aren't complete idiots. While the movie makes for a great independent, some of the acting and lines seemed a bit forced. I think a couple of early scenes with a little background on the main characters could have added to the movie and created something to build on, i.e. give us a glimpse of some future saving event.

All in all, for those who like quirky sci-fi horror, this one is well worth a view.

F-bomb, No sex, no nudity.

Easily one of the best films I've ever seen, both in comparison to the budget, and in general. It's no $Billion production from Hollywood, but it doesn't need to be, because the production was brilliant. Amazing film, could watch 100 times in a row and it would still be hilarious. It's a shame there's no 6/5 option!

Hardly ever wright reviews, however was so surprised by this movie I feel I need to!

If you understand "London" culture, then I think you will love this movie. Most of the characters I have come across in one way or another. There is everything from the deprived children of the estate, with gang culture a result. The young spoilt hipster, buying drugs before heading to one of his house parties. To the young professional who cannot afford anywhere else but a flat in this block "nurse".

The film has well thought out subtle humor throughout. In my opinion the aliens are almost a secondary thing compared to the observation of the various character types. As with a book we should never judge it by its cover. This film says just this about its characters.

Basically excellent movie, really enjoyed it!

Not to everyone's taste but has some brilliantly funny moments and some home truths about council estate living.... Some stereotypical sets can be annoying though :-)

Never having been a big fan of the adam & joe show, but seeing the premise of the movie, and having the always watchable Nick Frost in it.
Taking a cast of largely unknowns and using the tried & trusted "Alien Invasion"(-to a localised area), this movie delivers.
Bravely having the young(er) cast members playing largely (at first) unsympathetic members of a "gang", and just on the cusp of adulthood(no pun intended!).
I was aware of the initial "mugging" that gets the movie rolling, and was intrigued by how Joe Cornish would write himself out of such a difficult start. He delivers character arcs, that are both believable and true to the nature of the movie. Cornish also makes the difficult decision of killing sympathetic & unsympathetic alike.
Cornish also adds very topical and true social commentary-when asking Jodie Whittaker what her boyfriend does-she states helping starfing children in Africa. "What about the starving children in uk" is the answer.

Genuinely eerie, with genuine shocks, character Arcs, and an emotional wallop--and a young and excellent cast, whom all hopefully have good careers in front of them.
Excellent
