Monsters from outer space land in a council estate in South London during Guy Fawkes celebrations and soon it’s up to Moses and his ragtag coterie of young street thugs to save the world from extraterrestrial domination. But when the neighbourhood ganglord – not to mention the local teen girls with attitude – get involved, conquering the interplanetary invaders becomes a whole lot more complicated. From the producers of the wildly successful cult comedies ‘Hot Fuzz’ and ‘Shaun of the Dead’, Joe Cornish’s wildly popular ‘Attack the Block’ is a clever send-up of the alien invasion genre – it’s hilarious with a heart.
