ATTACK THE BLOCK | REVIEW

Attack the block is a film about a group of teens from south London living in a council block holding their own against aliens that fell from the sky.

Unoriginal alien invasion plot? Uninspiring tone? Bad dialogue? No, let’s start at storytelling 101 – the characters.

The plot was basic and predictable. Basic I can forgive, as there’s no need to over-complicate a storyline as it can diminish it’s impact, but the fact that it took the path of least resistance to the end wasn’t so forgivable. The only aspect of the plot I liked was that the woman who the kids mugged was forced to team up with them to defeat a common enemy, which provided some interesting tension and humour.
