Attack the Block is brilliant!

Attack the Block Poster

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!

About nediunedited

Who is nediunedited? A lover of cinema since the age of seven! All kinds–all genres. Films (TV and Books, too) have shaped my life–they were my escape, my inspiration and even my first role models. I do not rate my films in the traditional sense (no stars, grades, etc.)–instead I give you my opinion and my take on it–I do not give traditional plot summaries either, because I want you to go in clear–ready for your own experience. There is nothing better than discovering a fine film, without any other influence. (Personally, when I want to really see something I practice media shut out–I refuse to watch too many trailers, viral promos, reviews, etc–I have been known to cover my eyes and ears in the theater during trailers–LALALALA!) That’s me–hope you come by and visit! I will definitely make the rounds and find some of you out there, too.
