Attack the Block – Hairy Gorilla Aliens Invade London?

Nick Frost plays a smaller part in this British science fiction action movie (2011). The movie tells the story of a crazy night in South London, where aliens suddenly come crashing to the earth. A street gang, all young guys, are thrown into the action when they encounter the first of the aliens, just as they have mugged a woman who will later become their reluctant ally. The action is mixed up with comedy, but the movie also carries a more serious tone in some parts where the characters touch upon important and sensitive subjects. There are elements of parody, but they don’t overshadow the story. Definitely worth watching.

  1. I’ve read reviews about this movie but I have yet to watch it. I love comedy although sometimes I miss the jokes in British comedy. But since I love scifi this is something I definitely want to check out.
