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.
