B-Movies were once all the rage, but those days seem to have long gone. This is an update on those old much loved films, which takes a simple but outlandish idea, and fuses it with the modern London world.
We have here a set of young estate living lads who end up caught up with an alien invasion! The strange black furry creatures are attacking their tower block, and our unlikely urban heroes are as much looking out for their own lives as that of the others too!
The humour is good, the effects are fine and likable without being corny, the acting is great and you really begin to love the motley crew in this. They're never patronised, they talk in their own lingo and act like many others of their age do!
I really enjoyed it. I think this deserves more exposure, it's a fun film and will keep everyone entertained. Give it a go.
