It’s rare we give away passes to a film we’ve already had a chance to see here at Lost in Reviews. Further its uncommon that we get to give away passes to a movie that we absolutely LOVE. Win advanced screening passes for you and a guest to see Writer and Director Joe Cornish’s (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) ATTACK THE BLOCK.
Attack The Block is a fast, funny, frightening action adventure movie that pits a teen gang against an invasion of savage alien monsters. It turns a housing estate into a SCI-FI PLAYGROUND. A tower block into a fortress under siege. And weapon wielding teenage thugs into heroes. Think ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13 only with monsters and a tower block. Or LA HAINE crossed with ALIENS. It’s inner city versus outer space.
Trainee nurse Sam is walking home to her flat in a scary South London tower block when she’s robbed by a gang of masked, hooded youths. She’s saved when the gang are distracted by a bright meteorite, which falls from the sky and hits a nearby parked car. Sam flees, just before the gang are attacked by a small alien creature that leaps from the wreckage. The gang chase the creature and kill it, dragging its ghoulish carcass to the top of the block, which they treat as their territory.
While Sam and the police hunt for the gang, a second wave of meteors fall. Confident of victory against such feeble invaders, the gang grab weapons, mount bikes and mopeds, and set out to defend their turf. But this time the creatures are bigger. Much bigger. Savage, shadowy and bestial, they are hunting their fallen comrade and nothing will stand in their way. THE ESTATE IS ABOUT TO BECOME A BATTLEGROUND. And the bunch of no-hope kids who just attacked Sam are about to become her, and the block’s, only hope.
Screening will be held on Tuesday May 25th at The Palace at the Plaza 500 Nichols Road, Kansas City MO 64112 at 7:30pm
Contest ends on Sunday May 22.
ATTACK THE BLOCK doesn’t yet have an opening date here in the states. Thus this is your chance to see it early and help spread the word about how fantastic this film is. If you love Ghostbusters, Predator, Alien, Indiana Jones….I could go on this film captures the spirit of those and deserves to be seen!
