Multiplex Slut Review: Attack the Block

Multiplex Slut writes:
In a nutshell: London, the present. It's bonfire night and young nurse Sam (Jodie Whittaker) is walking home from work. On her way back she is mugged by a gang of youths (who, unbeknownst to either party live in the same titular tower block) led by the taciturn Moses (John Boyega). Immediately after the crime, a meteorite crashes into nearby parked car with a payload of a mysterious multi-fanged alien creature. The gang respond to the creature's aggression in kind, ultimately killing the creature and return triumphantly to the block to hide the carcass in the marijuana hot-house cultivated by good-natured dealer Roy (Nick Frost) and owned by short-fused local gangster Hi-Hatz (Jumayn Hunter). However, before long more of the beastly aliens start crashing to earth with aggressive intent, fixed on apparently killing everyone in the block; Sam is thrown together with her muggers (and posh stoner Brewis (Luke Treadaway)) as they are forced to confront the alien threat together.

Yea, I've been hearing good things about this one as well and I want to check it out at some point. I mean, everything I've seen looks only mildly interesting at best (and even cheesy and stupid at times), but the buzz has me interested.

It's like the same with 'Rubber', which I still need to get around to watching and finding out if that buzz was warranted or not in my opinion.
