Attack the Block

INNER CITY VS. OUTER SPACE.

attacktheblockOn Guy Fawkes Night, nurse Samantha Adams (Jodie Whittaker) is robbed by a gang of teenagers, led by Moses (John Boyega)‚Ķ but when aliens attack they join forces. Joe Cornish’s directing debut was made with support from the people behind Shaun of the Dead (2004). There are similarities, but this one has more serious intentions in its portrayal of troubled teenagers in South London, and the newcomers who play them all add to the film’s charm. The blend of action, comedy and monsters may remind you of Gremlins (1984); fun and exciting, even if the look of the monsters is proof of a limited budget.

2011-Britain. 88 min. Color. Written and directed by Joe Cornish. Cast: John Boyega (Moses), Jodie Whittaker (Samantha Adams), Alex Esmail (Pest), Franz Drameh, Leeon Jones, Simon Howard… Nick Frost. 

Trivia: Co-executive produced by Edgar Wright.
