"Attack The Block" by Yojimbo

When aliens invade a council estate in South London, a gang of local teenagers band together to defend their tower block. The idea behind this film has a lot of comic potential and the fact that Attack The Block was written and directed by Joe Cornish from cult TV skit show The Adam & Joe show meant I was looking forward to it immensely. It has that low-budget-but-in-a-cool-way sort of feel and some knowing direction and nice visual flourishes added to the anticipation but it has one MASSIVE flaw. It's just not funny enough.

Brit Scifi with a scrappy band of teenage hoodlums

Attack the block is a comedy/horror/thriller action film about a gang of youths in South London who rob a helpless woman on her way home. A sudden explosion and something falling from the sky, allow the woman to escape. When the gang's leader, 15 year old Moses (John Boyega) checks what happened he is attacked by an extraterrestrial creature. He and his band of loyal followers slay the alien for attacking him and takes the body with them hoping to make a few pounds out of the strange creature. From there, things get really ugly when Moses and friends find their block under attack from these fuzzy ultra black extraterrestrials with neon blue razor sharp teeth.

~~Warning: Spoiler~~

There is lots of swearing and drugs references. Towards the end Moses blows up the aliens with an oven ...
