Attack The Block: The British SciFi Film That Most Americans Missed
Attack The Block is a British science fiction film written and directed by British Joe Cornish and starring British teenage newcomer John Boyega (probably the next Idris Elba) as Moses the leader of a South London gang.
Moses and his gang’s routine is interrupted by a meteoric invasion of aliens that landed in South London. This movie is funny and has some sarcasm and satire about the influence of pop culture on gang life.
Elisha Rhea, owner of urbandisc.com, says: “Critics here in America were not to keen on this movie. If everyone listens to every critic that gives a movie a “bad rap” then everyone would not know whether the movie is good or not. This movie has some humor, although not a comedy (and not slap-stick humor) but satirical humor in a way that people view gang life of teenagers. This movie featured a lot of black British actors both male and female. Also, this movie was a winner of the Audience Award of the 2011 Los Angeles Film Festival.”
According to Rhea: “It’s an insight to that lifestyle and the slang that blacks in South London use that Americans have not seen on the screen. Although this movie was released last year, it had tough competition against Cowboys vs Aliens, an American film that was released about the same time in 2011. The marketers and distributors (and now retailers) here in America missed this one. Attack The Block is a far better story than most people anticipated. An added plus is a reggae track by Richie Spice at the end of Attack The Block. This is would be a great movie to watch over this holiday week.”
