YMMV: Attack the Block

  • Crazy Awesome: Only explanation for how Hi-Hatz survived in the elevator.
  • Cult Classic: Despite getting screwed by the studio, Attack the Block received high praise from critics and has a devoted following.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Probs and Mayhem.
  • Idiot Plot: Had they not killed the alien at the beginning of the movie, the cast would probably haven't had to go through all this. Even the other characters call out Moses for making a very stupid decision.
    • On the other hand, not killing it would have meant the aliens could breed. In which case we'd probably be calling Moses What an Idiot for not killing it before they could spread.
  • Memetic Mutation: I think it's safe to say a lot of the slang was mimicked after the movie came out. Trust.
    • That's an alien, bruv, believe it!
    • Allow it.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Hi-Hatz crosses this line when he still tries to kill Moses even after he sees the aliens himself.
  • Tear Jerker: Moses and the girls mourn the death of Dennis.
    • The worst part is you never even see the state of the body, just the reactions of everyone, especially Moses.
    "Actions have consequences, you know. Everywhere you go bad things happen. Stay away from us, Moses."
  • The Woobie: Brewis
    • Iron Woobie with minor shades of Jerkass Woobie: Moses. After all we see him do and go through in the film, it's pretty sad to learn that he's only fifteen years old. He has Spiderman bedsheets.
