A South London gang is out making trouble, trying to mug a young lady when fire falls from the sky. A race of aliens has landed and they are out for blood. The gang has to try to work together to defend their territory from the bloodthirsty aliens who prove a lot tougher than those they typically have to face.

This is brought to you by the same team that brought you “Sean of the Dead”, it’s certainly tongue in cheek and somewhat humorous. However the aliens are real tough guys. Big as gorillas and running on all fours, covered in hair and with glow in the dark mouths, they are pretty terrifying and quite strong. They sneak through the shadows and are very fast. As we catch glimpses of them they become more and more horrific.

This is basically a morality play. The bad guy is the one everyone has to depend on to save them, and it’s going to be interesting to see who is able to forgive his past transgressions and accept his help. Played by a typical bad mouthed bunch of hoods, that’s exactly what they’re supposed to be. Not very likable, but again, just what you would expect. They have to do what they can to survive, and it’s certainly full of action and suspense. This was a bit of a surprise to me, as I didn’t expect much, but I was impressed with the action and adventure in this film, along with some real humor. It was well done, and I enjoyed it quite a bit.
