Attack the Block

Attack the Block ★★★½

After being largely bored with “Save Yourselves!” I had a rebound in the alien invasion sub genre. Here’s an entertaining alien invasion movie with a little bit of social commentary sprinkled in. It never feels forced either, the story and characters are strong enough to not feel like it relies on the racial disparities.

I enjoyed the special effects of the creatures, and their design is unique, which is rare in movies about aliens. The performances are great, and the lighting effective considering it all takes place at night. I didn’t care too much for the soundtrack, could have used more KRS One. Whoop! Whoop! That’s the sound of a solid movie! Three and a half stars.
