LRA writes: I went into this movie completely blind to any sort of expectations besides the buzz circulating the Internet about it. I had caught snippets here and there of many different critics that I trusted throwing praise upon it without hesitation. All I knew was that it was made by people that worked on Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, that it had something to do with aliens and that it was from the UK. Going into any movie like that can either set you up for extreme disappointment or prepare you for a miraculous discovery. I first saw Shaun of the Dead under these exact same circumstances with little to no expectations other than going out with some friends to an advance screening for something that apparently had zombies in it and look how that turned out. While I can't rightly claim at this time whether or not Attack the Block is on the same level as that now horror/comedy classic but I can say without a doubt that it is one of the best films of its kind I have seen in a very long time.
