There's nowt like a council estate to give you the willies. And doesn't Joe Cornish know it. His directorial debut sees an alien invasion land upon a South London tower block, challenging the local gang for their home turf.
"That's an alien, bruv, believe it!" declares one of the youths after they've shanked E.T. in the face. But rather than focus on the fact that our heroes are horrible assholes, Attack the Block jumps straight over that hurdle and gets on with its main goal: killing aliens, blud, you get me?
