Have you seen Attack the Block yet? You certainly ought to have done, because it’s phenomenally good. It follows, therefore, that at least some of the people involved in it are within a micron of the same degree of good, and – lucky us! – we got to meet pretty much all of them for a lovely chat. Hurrah!
There’s a lot of firsts in Attack the Block – it’s the first feature from writer-director Joe Cornish (of Adam and Joe fame), it stars a host of first-time actors, and it may be the first time that Nick Frost has done anything without Simon Pegg (or, at the least, Bill Nighy). It’s also destined to be in first place on a lot of ‘Films of 2011’ lists. Witty, scary and replete with incidences of the word ‘murk’, Attack the Block is utterly brilliant.
