Attack The Block best reviews:
“Starring a tough-minded band of scrappy teens who actually do some solving, it’s the movie “Super 8″ wanted to be -- or should have been. “

“Boyega is absolutely riveting, leading with a stern glower, and constantly trying to prove himself. Yet Moses has a deep well of tenderness and honor beneath the façade, and Boyega almost single-handedly makes you care not just about his character, but about everyone in any gang that would align itself with him. He’s that magnetic.”

Attack The Block worst reviews:
“This low-budget sci-fi item was produced by some of the Brits who made “Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz,” including their writer and director, Edgar Wright, but it hardly compares, despite Nick Frost’s brief appearance as a mangy pot dealer.”

“Attack the Block is the other alien-invasion movie opening today, the lousy one, the one from Britain. In Britain, it’s probably just a regular bad movie, but here -- with accents that are barely comprehensible and in-jokes about council flats, not to mention a swerving handheld camera and some of the cheapest effects since “Night of the Lepus” -- it’s surprising this thing ever got released.”
