Thought it was a solid movie. Didn't bite off more than it could chew, rational characters (based on the fact that they're teenagers!), didn't oversaturate with unecessary character development, and honestly believable... which is a feat for a movie with furry gorilla monsters with no eyes and glowing blue teeth.
was way better then I expected to be honest =) Not cheesy, straight to the point and simple.
I felt this film didn't quite reach its potential, but I still enjoyed it all the same. Being Aussie, I particularly enjoyed the vernacular - it's nice to experience a different set of colloquialisms.
enough this film..... loved every minute
For some reason, I didn't enjoy Attack the Block as much as I thought It deserved when I heard about it. The characters were flat and uninteresting, and the plot never grabbed a hold on me. Besides...when a movie tries this hard to have funny moments and then fails miserably at it, it annoys me to no end. The fact that they set up the youth criminals as the heroes kinda irked me as well...
I can't in good conscience recommend this, but I suspect I'm the weird one with this one as it gets rave reviews all over.
