Attack the Block

 (2011)

Attack the Block Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Joe Cornish writes and directs this British sci-fi comedy action adventure starring Jodie Whittaker, Luke Treadaway and Nick Frost. While being robbed by a gang of thugs outside the South London tower block where she lives, trainee nurse Sam (Whittaker)'s hooded attackers suddenly break off their assault when a meteorite hits a nearby carpark. As Sam flees the scene, the gang members fend off an attack from a small alien being that has emerged from the crash-site, killing it in the process, and carrying off their prize to their rooftop lair. But now, as Sam and the police search for the gang, a new wave of meteorites fall. With the gang emboldened by their latest victory, they prepare to face their new-found enemy, only to be confronted with an army of much larger, savagely vicious alien monsters, hellbent on finding their comrade.

Attack the Block Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Attack the Block lands on Blu-ray with a proficient and pleasing 1080p Blu-ray transfer. Sony's image yields a positive film-like texture; it's nicely detailed and accented by a light layer of grain. However, faces often have a slightly pasty, undefined look to them, but considering just what a dark image this is, there's little room for brilliant definition to begin with. Still, wet pavement, building façades, and clothing textures as seen in the well-lit apartment buildings look as good as any high quality Blu-ray out there. Colors aren't terribly bright, but as noted this is a relatively dark image. They're well balanced and natural when in adequate light to appreciate what's there, and the glow-in-the-dark creature teeth really shine no matter the setting. Unfortunately, blacks sometimes border on crush and sometimes gravitate towards an unwanted shade of dark gray. The print is in perfect condition, yielding no evident scratches or dirt, just as expected of a brand-new release. Light banding is visible in a few shots, but other maladies are absent. It's not the most attractive image by its very nature, but this is another handsome, well-constructed transfer from Sony.


Attack the Block Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Attack the Block isn't all about wild sound, incessant effects, and endless explosions. Nevertheless, there's plenty to enjoy about Sony's DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack. The track is wide and spacious, gently natural in movement and slightly more aggressive when need be. Music is full and satisfying, crisp and accurate throughout the entire range. The track yields plenty of directional effects, notably in the form of fireworks popping all over the listening area early in the movie and later zipping from side to side and front to back. General ambience is quite good, too; even the most indistinct but mood-crucial effects help to bring out the most in every scene, no matter what it has to offer. Bass is well-pronounced but never overexerts itself. Dialogue is center-based and never becomes lost under any surrounding and supportive elements. This isn't a world beater to be sure, but it is a sound, well-balanced, and highly immersive presentation that supports the movie quite well.
