Macabre...ish Horror Review: Attack The Block
Attack The Block, 2001/ 1 hr 28 min. An English Sci-fi fantasy horror.
South London teenagers (John Boyega, Alex Esmail, Leeon Jones)
are hanging out for the evening when they see what looks like falling stars, except there are a lot of them and they’re falling locally and are, in fact, aliens. They chase one down and take it’s corpse to a local hangout, Ron’s (Nick Frost) Weed Room.
But they made a fatal error, they’re interrupted mating season and the kids are being hunted and have put they’re neighborhood in danger.
But they don’t know that now they’re marked and the aliens are hunting them. But they find out and arm themselves and while on the run through the block, they’re under attack and lose a few of their mates and take up refuge in a flat the belongs to a lady they robbed earlier in the evening.
But it’s no use, so a plan is set, Moses (Boyega) is going to set a trap and lead them away from everyone else, using himself as bait.
This is a great movie! There’s blood and it’s somewhat graphic for a movie where kids die in the movie. It’s fast paced, really good cinematography, monster and concept plus a great ending!
