It’s Episode 93! Miriam and Gareth, fellow Shabbos Rollers, join Flixwatcher to review Joe (Adam & Joe) Cornish’s debut film Attack the Block.

As well as being Cornish’s debut it is also John Boyega’s first film too, starring as Moses. A gang leader whose Bonfire Night features mugging, being arrested and battling aliens. Showing his influences on his sleeve, Attack the Block takes e.t, Aliens, Signs and Star Wars and transplants them into the social housing towers of south London.


Mixing sci-fi and horror with a sort of coming of age story Attack the Block manages to be both spectacularly cinematic and terribly British at the same time while throwing in some social commentary for good measure. Scoring highly from Miriam, Gareth and Kobi but a lit lower from Helen, Attack the Block scores a very respectable 3.63 overall.
