“Attack the Block,” although attention-grabbing because of its promise for action and drama, really isn’t all its cracked up to be.
Although the director has created successful movies before, “Attack the Block” didn’t live up to expectations.
“Attack the Block” is written and directed by Joe Cornish, who brought us “Hot Fuzz.”
It’s the story of a teenage gang in London and their unlikely battle against a group of aliens who have landed in their neighborhood.
I enjoyed “Hot Fuzz,” and the trailer for “Attack the Block” looked pretty good, so I thought I’d give it a shot.
The alien invasion story is a bit overused, and this story wasn’t anything fantastic.
The humor wasn’t there, and I could hardly understand what anyone was saying because of the accents.
There wasn’t anything special about this movie, and overall, it wasn’t that entertaining. I give “Attack the Block”: 6.5/10.
