Attack the Block

Attack the Block ★★★

Part of No Re-Watch November

Despite a couple of inspired sections of the script and some genuine tension in moments, this one just did not resonate with me. I wanted to like this film, but I couldn't lie to myself. I found it repetitive and awkwardly paced. I found it impossible to care about the majority of the poorly-crafted characters, most of whom are wholly unlikable. I found it lazily directed, with dark-looking shots whose purpose seemed to attempt to veil the lackluster CGI. I'm not saying it isn't entertaining [for the most part], but it certainly isn't "great" in any sense of the word.
