What's not to like?By a customer , 19 Feb 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]It's funny, the young actors are great, there's plenty of tension and a bit of gore. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm not enjoying the reviews of people using the word 'chav' though. I quite hope one of the fluorescent toothed aliens munches them to be honest.
The fact that so many people seem to hate this film (though only those writing reviews, curiously, if you look at the breakdown of the ratings) confirms to me that I'm out of step with the idiot mainstream and I'm quite pleased.

Block the AttackBy Sirrom (1 review) , 11 Jun 2013I've loved this film every time I've watched it. Having worked on that block with some of those very kids it made me see the funny, human, positive side of them. I loved the way they were no longer the 'baddies' but became the heroes in an age where inner city teens are labelled trouble makers. I loved the involvement of the other adults - so fantastical and yet so real!
annoyin... innit?By LordLaLa (1 review) , 05 Jun 2013don't bovver...seriously very annoying and unlikeable teens. Not funny enough to engage me. Can give you no clues as to plot because I switched it off as soon as I could!
Kidulthood with aliensBy a customer , 26 May 2013
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideA bunch of feral gangsta wannabes rob a nurse, murder an alien half their size, cause the flats where they live to be attacked by aliens and are somehow heroes at the end? Nope. Most of them are killed off long and those left are unrepentant to the end. The acting is definitely good and the film moves fast. Just a shame it's yet another vehicle to glamorise being a mindless little thug.
why haven't i already seen itBy a customer , 25 May 2013This film was amazing a bit of Gore and a lot of swearing but otherwise good the start is a bit bad though
Brilliant British SciFi comedyBy a customer , 18 May 2013this is not a hollywood production but for UK standard it was a brilliant version of alien. I'm a big fan of Alien and this comic version is just amazing and the actors were A actors.
