REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..it's hot, fierce, funny, vicious and ready to bite..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
“..a hilarious, slam-bang series of chases and battles that cross "Gremlins" with "Assault on Precinct 13," the two most prominent of many genre films quoted by "Attack the Block"..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
“..unfortunately, "Attack the Block" makes two crucial mistakes: It doesn't have great monsters. And it doesn't have great heroes..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]
