SPOILER ALERT

In the Brixton, London, while a gang of five mugs a female nurse at knife point, an object falls from the sky causing mayhem for the inhabitants of the local government housing. Attack the Block, is at times called ‘Shaun fo the Dead with aliens,” which is not too apt a comparison as this is a darker film dealing with such issues as British race relations and the experiences of urban youth. Also at the core of this story though, is the timless lesson,” With great power comes great responsibility.” This powerful script had actors who mastered their roles. The effects which made the aliens were awesome too.
