ATTACK THE BLOCK is
finally opening today now available for your home entertainment entertaining. It is worth getting off your couch, watching 88 minutes of glorious alien carnage, and becoming a #blockhead. Trust.
Written and directed by Brit Joe Cornish and executive produced by Edgar Wright, ATB is non-stop action. The film first knocks you out of your comfort zone by introducing 6 teens in hoodies led by Moses (superbly acted by John Boyega) committing a straight-up crime and then 15 minutes later smacks you in the face because guess what? These are our heroes. Allow it!
When aliens decide to roll up into their hood they are not having it. It is inner city versus outer space (gotta love a good marketing tagline).
