Attack the Block

I really enjoyed this film. It had a sort of modern Goonies or The Monster Squad feel to it and I liked it a lot better than Super 8. I normally don’t go into plot details of films because I assume you’ve seen ads for them or trailers but this one is a British import and I haven’t seen any ads for it or anything. The movie opens with a gang of kids mugging a woman but in the process a meteor crashes unleashing an alien and these kids have to fight to save their block but mostly themselves. The motivation behind the aliens arrival was a fresh spin on the genre and it was great to see an R-rated film where kids act and talk like real kids.
