Attack the Block
Homework - march 1, 2021
An alien invasion movie with a fun, focused POV and a young ensemble cast that avoids that teen movie vibe. The characters and setting showcase a gritty urban feel with protagonists who aren’t the wholesome families we’re used to seeing in these genres. The action and danger is real and exciting, and the music and direction are immersive.
Featuring a young John Boyega, years before Star Wars, his leading man charisma is already clear.
Currently streaming on Prime, Hulu, DirecTV, epix in the US, as well as CTV in Canada, this is Aliens for another generation.
