  • It's hot, fierce, funny, vicious and ready to bite, baby. show more

  • Attack the Block is the other alien-invasion movie opening today, the lousy one, the one from Britain. In Britain, it's probably just a regular bad movie, but here - with accents that are barely comprehensible and in-jokes about council flats, not to mention a swerving handheld camera and some of the cheapest effects since "Night of the Lepus" - it's surprising this thing ever got released. show more

  • The cast is splendid, the script quick-witted and the action satisfying. show more

    I loved this movie! The script, the acting, the slang, the soundtrack and the aliens were awesome! Rented the movie, then bought it, then bought the soundtrack. Trust!

    Very different. Not absolutely amazing, but definitely worth watching. Soundtrack and score are also pretty top notch.
