All Critics (155) | Top Critics (33) | Fresh (139) | Rotten (16) | DVD (9) Attack the Block is essentially an action thriller and as such is effective.

Attack the Block

Here is a shaggy monster movie that pulls double-duty as a satire of class and ethnic barriers, and how those barriers quickly disappear when we are forced to fight for our simple survival. Attack the Block attacks the alien invasion genre with wit, energy and a cheeky insolence that makes it out of this world. An energetic genre ride with social ambitions about race and class. "Attack the Block" demands to be seen simply because it is a thrill - a pulse-raiser whose perfect construction and pointed wit make it one of the year's most exciting films. The movie's amateurishly made. Attack the Block isn't a great movie, but it's fueled by a sense of energy that still makes it somewhat irresistible regardless of its (sometimes far too obvious) flaws. Skilled, heartfelt entertainment done well.
