Film Series: Attack The Block

2011. UK. Dir: Joe Cornish. With John Boyega, Nick Frost. 88 min.

When furry, fanged, and fluorescent creatures plummet from the sky into the London
projects, a gang of stoned hoodlums take it upon themselves to defend their neighborhood
from the wicked space invaders. If the kids from SUPER 8 weren’t a bunch of damn
wusses, it might look something like this: lean, intense action bolstered by clever
characterization and devilish humor.
Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. $5.
