Jeremy of The Media Stomp wrote, "Writer/director Joe Cornish makes his film debut with Attack the Block, a very impressive alien invasion movie that takes place in South London. Everything manages to fit in perfectly. There are tons of action sequences, lots of jokes, great music and some good special effects. Nothing about the film feels forced or out of place and that is what really made this one shine. At the time of writing this, the film doesn't have an actual release date and I hope that changes very soon because this one needs to be seen by all. It's a great movie and probably my favorite summer movie so far."
Attack the Block 2 is officially in the works, with Joe Cornish returning to direct and John Boyega back on board to star.
