Attack the Block follows an unlucky young woman and and a gang of tough inner-city kids who make an unlikely alliance to try to defend their turf against an invasion of savage alien creatures, turning a South London apartment complex into a war-zone. Written by
Members of the gang compare the film's aliens to various fantastical creatures, all British in origin, namely: Dobby the house-elf from J.K. Rowling's series of Harry Potter novels; Gollum from the works of J.R.R. Tolkien; and Gremlins, who while they are now best-known for the two American films by Joe Dante, were born out of the imagination of RAF fighter pilots during World War II, and were initially popularized by author Roald Dahl in his first novel.

Worst movie of the year because of the main "heroes"
This movie was disgusting because the heroes (the people that the movie wants you to think you are so you follow the story, am I wrong about this ?) are a group of teenage criminals who steal from a girl at the beginning of the movie.
This made me want during the entire movie that the aliens kill these bastards and then invade Earth as quickly as possible.
I was expecting that the heroes were some lost kids with no future and they could have become big kids with this alien chase, but since they were always selling drugs or harassing people in the streets, I could not get interested less in their fate.
The movie was not interesting for anything apart from a few camera angles.
