IN ATTACK The Block, a riotous action comedy from writerdirector Joe Cornish, aliens descend on an unsuspecting south London council estate. The terrified residents of the capital should be no match for slavering beasties with luminous fangs ... except the invaders don’t count on local knife-wielding hoodies. The wolf-like creatures soon realise their devastating speed and strength are no match for the south London lads, whose merciless fighting instincts have been honed on their PlayStation and Xbox. Wayward lads Moses (Boyega), Pest (Esmail), Dennis (Drameh), Jerome (Jones) and Biggz (Howard), come face-to-face with a creature from another planet after a meteor shower. After they slay the snarling beastie, a second downpour of meteors heralds more creatures and the lads gleefully grab weapons, leaping on to bicycles and mopeds. Attack The Block has the potential to be one of the truly surprise hits of the summer, boasting some energetic action sequences in and around the tower block, and hilarious one-liners. FAMILY WATCH: Swearing, No Sex, Violence.
