Yes, Responsibility with a capital R. The movie also tackles Important Social Questions, but to its credit, Attack the Block never gets hackneyed or preachy; there's far too much suspense and danger for that. (The likeable and well-differentiated heroes are constantly in real danger, and - spoiler alert - they don't all make it.) The movie also brims over with the irrepressible energy of the young protagonists; once you get used to their accents and slang, the humour is infectious.
Terrific and satisfying flick. Buy buy buy.
Just in case you're wondering why all the action occurs around a singular apartment building and not the entire "block," it's a Britglish. The block refers to that building known as a tower block (think the projects on the South Side of Chicago and you'll get the picture).
Anyway, the creatures are terrifying as rabid aliens. The kids are first-rate in their ability to band together and defend their block. There is also a terrific social commentary on the state of Britain snuck in based on the interplay between the police and the kids. Also, be forewarned the start of the movie which contains no aliens is a pretty sinister mugging that you wonder if you've got the right movie.
The extras are worth getting the DVD for. There's a full hour on the making of the movie and it's beyond terrific. There's a full four more extras thrown in as well on the movie including a reason why a huge chunk was not filmed at all after being storyboarded and location scouted.
Characters are somewhat not easy to like at first,
they warm you over though.
Impressive creature design and a generally entertaining film.

Seriously, don't even watch this on late night TV when it turns up there...better to watch the paid commercial announcement about the 'Amazing Ronco Super Slicer Dicer'. Read morePublished on Sept. 23 2013 by Jag Sulla
