Attack The Block

Presented by at Belcourt Theatre

September 9 - September 15, 2011


Attack The Block

Dir. Joe Cornish, UK, 2011, 87min, R, 35mm

From the producers of SHAUN OF THE DEAD and SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD comes ATTACK THE BLOCK, a fast funny, frightening action adventure movie that pits a teen gang against an invasion of savage alien monsters. It turns a London housing estate into a sci-fi playground. A tower block into a fortress under siege. And teenage street kids into heroes. It's inner city versus outer space.

"Irreverently funny without ever being spoofy...The one-liners are hilarious, and Cornish has a deft touch at weaving social commentary on urban gentrification into the narrative."
- Ian Buckwalter, NPR

"It's a doozy, offering tight and imaginative camerawork, electric thrills, and a sharp, twisty script that plays like a social satire."
- Bruce Diones, New Yorker

"Pulsing with a rowdy energy, the film works as both a sci-fi horror flick and a teen adventure film."
- Mark Olsen, LA Times
