Once in a while you go into a theater and it happens…magic. Strong characters. Creative setting. Cool effects. Bad Ass action. And you walk out excited and satisfied. Attack the Block is this year’s District 9–coming out of nowhere and becoming an instant classic!
Writer and director Joe Cornish creates a realistic universe. He sets up the characters cleverly and quickly–allowing him to jump into the action. What is cool, too–is that the aliens are unique and their attack plausible.
What I really loved though was the humor and the emotional connection he established. So, while you are screaming and biting your nails, you really do not want any of them to come to harm. Well done!
I do not want to give much away–all I will say is that it is one of the best movies I’ve seen this year–and I want you to enjoy it too!
