Reviews

“Attack the Block is essentially an action thriller and as such is effective
- John Anderson, Newsday

Attack the Block” demands to be seen simply because it is a thrill – a pulse-raiser whose perfect construction and pointed wit make it one of the year’s most exciting films
- John DeFore, Washington Post

An entertaining thriller in the tradition of 1970s B-action films, with an unknown cast, energetic special effects and great energy
- Roger Ebert, Chicago-Sun Times

This movie wants and needs to come at you like a beast in the dark. Allow it.
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
