Critic Reviews for Attack the Block
Look, this is a nicely performed film which is kept quick and tight, but for a comic horror it's just not funny or horrifying enough.
Not only is Attack the Block wickedly entertaining, but it's also well-written, suspenseful, whip-smart and moves rocket fast.
Attack the Block is essentially an action thriller and as such is effective.
Attack the Block is the best popcorn flick of the entire summer, and I mean that as one heck of a gigantic compliment.
Here is a shaggy monster movie that pulls double-duty as a satire of class and ethnic barriers, and how those barriers quickly disappear when we are forced to fight for our simple survival.
Audience Reviews for Attack the Block
This deserves a place in the pantheon of outstanding directorial debuts.
A Goonies, Gremilins and Kill Bill Mix that is just great.
Well I watched it. All of it. It definitely was interesting. Within the first minute I had to put on the subtitles, because I had NO idea what language they were speaking. Apparently, South London has their own style of English...gibberish. The movie itself was kind of fun, in a way. I guess. It definitely was different. Made me laugh a few times..that's always good.
