Released this weekend, the “aliens-invade-the-hood” thriller surpasses the typical science-fiction movie with ongoing action and genuinely funny moments. It reminded me of Super 8, but this movie was waaaaaay better. It’s not only action-packed and funny, but also touches on social issues.
The plot is simple. An alien falls out of the sky while a group of hood rat kids are in the middle of mugging a lady. They end up beating the alien which unraveled the upcoming events. More aliens drop from the sky and a battle in the block begins. The best part is that these kids are not afraid to fight back.
It’s a low-budget movie with an unknown cast, and if you can see past the ugly looking aliens, this movie is awesomely well done and well worth it. I rate it 8.5/10
I wish I had a British accent…
I love British movies because they’re made with quality (well, not always, but a lot of them) – King’s Speech, Fish Tank, This is England, Pride & Prejudice, Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels, Jane Austen…just to name a few
This movie is already out it the UK, but has different release dates for other countries…so I have no idea when I’ll be watching it but I can’t wait…
