I thought this film was great. I can imagine it gaining a cult following in the future. A lot of people I know say they 'didn't get it' or thought it was stupid, but I think people just need to see it a few times. There were some brilliant lines in there that people will be quoting in a few years time, much like Anchorman, Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, those kind of films.
It's basically chavs v's aliens. The film is set on a council estate in London. We witness a street gang mug a young lady. Suddenly a fiery object crashes into a car next to them and when they go to investigate they discover a strange creature which attacks their leader. The gang hunt the creature down and kill it. Soon more fiery objects are heading to earth and the street gang find themselves defending their 'block' from an alien invasion.
I've read stories about how the kids are going to need to have subtitles for American audiences. I have to admit they're not particularly easy to understand, some of the slang they use is brilliant. But that's the whole point. I really think putting subtitles on the film to explain what the kids are saying is ridiculous and would really spoil it.
If you don't like a bit of strong language (actually a lot of very strong language) then this probably isn't for you. But if you love films like Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and District 9 I would recommend this one.
My rating ~ 4.5/5
