Attack The Block 4 stars

movie title

Trainee nurse Sam is mugged on her way home to the Clayton Estate by wayward lads Moses, Pest, Dennis, Jerome and Biggz. The assault is thankfully cut short by a sudden meteor shower and when the youths investigate, they come face to snout with a creature from another world. A second downpour of meteors heralds more creatures and the lads gleefully grab weapons and leap onto the bicycles and mopeds.

Time and again, when extraterrestrials invade Earth, they choose the trigger happy United States of America as the point of inception. And every time, there is a square-jawed hero, striking a pose in front of the Stars And Stripes, who single-handedly repels their otherworldly advances. So in Attack The Block, a riotous action comedy from writer-director Joe Cornish, the aliens descend instead on an unsuspecting south London council estate.

The terrified residents of the capital should be no match for slavering beasties with luminous fangs... except the invaders don't count on local knife-wielding hoodies with a serious attitude problem. The wolf-like creatures soon realise that their devastating speed and strength are no match for the lads, whose merciless fighting instincts have been honed on their PlayStation and Xbox. In space no one can hear you scream but in south London they can... they just choose to ignore you.

Trainee nurse Sam (Jodie Whittaker) is mugged on her way home by wayward lads Moses (John Boyega), Pest (Alex Esmail), Dennis (Franz Drameh), Jerome (Leeon Jones) and Biggz (Simon Howard). The assault is thankfully cut short by a meteor shower and when the youths investigate, they come face to snout with a creature from another world.

"Are you trying to tell me it's raining monkeys, bruv?" laughs one of the kids after they slay the snarling beastie and drag its lifeless, furry carcass to the top-floor drug den run by Hi-Hatz (Jumayn Hunter) and his lay-about door man, Ron (Nick Frost). A second downpour of meteors heralds more creatures and the lads gleefully grab weapons and leap onto the bicycles and mopeds.

Attack The Block has the potential to be one of the surprise hits of the summer, boasting some energetic action sequences in and around the tower block as well as hilarious one-liners. Cornish plays loose and fast with conventions of the genre and he doesn't think twice about sacrificing some of his young protagonists to the creatures to underline the clear and present danger.

Transforming young people, who are demonised by society, into the unlikely saviours of the hour is a nice touch. The young cast, mostly first-time performers, have an appealing rawness in front of the camera and Frost and Luke Treadaway, playing one of Ron's posh punters, create a goofy double act.

For every generous splash of blood or edge-of-seat shock there is usually a belly laugh to dissipate the tension, whether it be one of the younger boys on the estate trying to create a rough and tough alter ego ("Me name's not Gavin, it's Mayhem!") or one of the hoodies whipping out his mobile phone to message friends and whimpering, "This is too much madness to explain in one text!" E.T. wanted to phone home but humans SMS.

Luck be a lady for Frank Sinatra and Marlon Brando in this welcome re-release of Joseph L Mankiewicz's classic 1955 musical based on two short stories by Damon Runyon and the Broadway stage show of the same name. Nathan Detroit (Sinatra) needs to organise a high-stakes crap game but the police led by wily Lieutenant Brannigan (Robert Keith) are exerting pressure to put an end to unlicensed gambling. Nathan searches for a venue while trying to appease his fiancee of 14 years, Miss Adelaide (Vivian Blaine), who is keen to tie the knot... if her beau gives up gambling for good. Fellow risk-taker Sky Masterson (Brando), who enjoys wagering on seemingly random events, bets Nathan 1000 dollars that he can't woo righteous Sergeant Sarah Brown (Jean Simmons) from the Save a Soul mission and get her to have dinner with him. Nathan accepts the bet and begins his seduction of Sarah but with the law closing in fast, he'll need Lady Luck more than ever to come up trumps. The film includes three songs, written specifically for the big screen: "Adelaide", "Pet Me Poppa" and "(Your Eyes Are The Eyes Of) A Woman In Love".

Frank Capra's life affirming 1946 fable stars James Stewart as suicidal family man George Bailey, who ponders a life without his beloved wife Mary (Donna Reed) and children, but is thankfully saved by guardian angel Clarence (Henry Travers). "You see George, you've really had a wonderful life," says the spirit, "Don't you see what a mistake it would be to just throw it away?" It's A Wonderful Life is one of the best films ever made and the perfect festive treat. Stewart, as the suicidal father who is dragged back from the brink by an all-knowing, all-seeing angel, has never been better, and the direction and pacing throughout is virtually flawless.

Monsters 4 stars

movie title

In futuristic Mexico, womanising newspaper photographer Andrew must help his boss's daughter, Samantha, return home to America. The ports are about to close and Andrew is told he must pay an extortionate fee to get Samantha on the last boat before the borders are locked down. The only other option is to pay a smuggler to shepherd them through the infected zone where tentacled aliens roam.

James Cameron please take note: you don't need to spend $200 million to smack an audience's gobs. British writer-director Gareth Edwards challenges the conventional thinking that bigger is always better when it comes to special effects-laden science fiction films with his ultra low budget feature debut. With a background in visual effects, Edwards sent ripples through the industry a couple of years ago by creating impressive digital trickery in his bedroom for a fraction of the normal cost.

Now, the innovative filmmaker makes the seamless transition to the director's chair with Monsters, a brilliantly executed thriller reminiscent of Cloverfield, which puts various multi-million dollar blockbusters to shame. Gareth Edwards and a small team, including two actors, travelled to Guatemala and Mexico with a skeletal script, a camera and boundless enthusiasm.

The crew found locations they loved and improvised scenes, intending to stitch everything together in the editing room, where hundreds of special effects would be added to evoke a futuristic world in which aliens and humans live side by side, segregated by massive concrete walls. This carefree approach to filmmaking sounds like a recipe for disaster but Gareth Edwards maintains control of the various elements with aplomb.

Monsters opens with a nail-biting night vision sequence and an attack on an armoured convoy. We flashback to bright sunshine over Mexico where womanising newspaper photographer Andrew (Scoot McNairy) must help his boss's daughter, Samantha (Whitney Able), return home to America. The ports are about to close and Andrew is told he must pay an extortionate fee to get Samantha on the last boat before the borders are locked down.

The only other option is to pay a smuggler to shepherd them through the infected zone where the tentacled aliens roam, which they are warned will be "a very difficult journey... very risky, very dangerous."

Andrew and Samantha have no choice and head off into the wilderness, taking heed of one guide who tells them, "There are extra-terrestrials in the trees. All the trees are infected." As they near the US border and freedom, the couple encounter the gargantuan beasts close-up and discover that the real monsters might just be mankind.

From its gripping opening to the heartbreaking conclusion, Monsters holds us in a vice-like grip as Gareth Edwards creates a richly detailed future reality, aided by strong performances from Scoot McNairy and Whitney Able, who have since married. The director orchestrates some terrific set pieces, including a nervy nighttime boat ride that proves it's not safe to go back in the water.

Apart from a few continuity errors, it's difficult to tell that the film was made in such a haphazard fashion. Everything fits together snugly and the special effects are terrific, including the creatures which are revealed in their full, hulking glory in the final 30 minutes.

Serenity 3 stars

Captain Malcolm Reynolds ekes out a meagre living carrying out transport-for-hire aboard his ship Serenity. Aided by his undyingly loyal crew, he pulls off small crimes as a galactic civil war continues to rage, with no end in sight. When Reynolds takes on two new passengers - a young doctor and his telepathic sister River - he suddenly finds himself caught between the Universal Alliance and cannibalistic savages known as the Reavers.

  • CastNathan Fillion, Summer Glau, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Alan Tudyk.

In Hollywood, there is such a thing as life after death. In 2002, Joss Whedon, the creator of the hit award-winning series Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Angel, debuted his futuristic sci-fi drama Firefly. Set in the 26th century, the show revolved around the ragtag crew of a spaceship called Serenity, struggling to survive in a bleak future ruled with an iron fist by the Alliance.

Despite a loyal and, some might say, obsessive fanbase, Whedon's newest creation was cancelled after only 11 episodes had aired on American television. A campaign to reinstate the show failed to reap rewards. However, Firefly took flight again on DVD, allowing Whedon to resurrect the characters in this stand-alone feature film.

Captain Malcolm Reynolds (Nathan Fillion) ekes out a meagre living carrying out transport-for-hire aboard his ship Serenity. Rejecting the rule of order established by the all-powerful Universal Alliance, Mal survives in the outlands by bending the law, and occasionally smashing it to smithereens.

He is aided and abetted by a loyal crew: feisty and opinionated second-in-command Zoe (Gina Torres), her pilot husband Wash (Alan Tudyk), muscle-bound brute Jayne (Adam Baldwin) and spunky mechanic Kaylee (Jewel Staite). When Mal takes on two passengers - young doctor Simon (Sean Maher) and his emotionally unstable, telepathic sister River (Summer Glau) - he suddenly finds himself in even deeper trouble.

River possesses dark and dangerous secrets about the Alliance, buried deep in her fractured subconscious. If those secrets were ever to be revealed, the fate of entire worlds could be at stake. The Alliance dispatches The Operative (Chiwetel Ejiofor) to retrieve River by any means necessary - even if that means killing Mal and his loved ones.

As the crew of Serenity attempts to elude the Alliance, they stray into territory controlled by the Reavers, cannibalistic savages with a passion for wanton destruction... and human blood.

Serenity is a slickly written and entertaining romp that bears all of the hallmarks of an old-fashioned Star Trek episode (albeit with more snappy dialogue). The plot is simplistic, hung on a series of energetic set pieces, which are let down by a lack of imagination and crude computer generated special effects.

In the quieter moments, writer-director Whedon shines, seamlessly moving from a joke about the Rime Of The Ancient Mariner to Kaylee's saucy one-liner about her lack of bedroom action ("It's been more than a year since I had anything 'twixt my nethers that didn't run on batteries!")

Characterization in the feature film is scant to say the least, relying on an appreciation of the television series to understand the relationships between the crew members. However, even newcomers to the Firefly universe will find something to keep them engaged for the two hours.
