This film is great - belive.

Greatfilm with very witty dialogue. This film is a fun escape and appeals to teenage boys in particular. The main thing to remember here though is these hoodies a real thugs. Violence is a way of life so when the aliens come a good weapon is at hand and the gang mentality is scarily factual. 'yeah mum i'm just playing soccer' says one as they are robbing a single defensless female. A good point to make with the wannbe hoodies in your middle class family. They may be the good guys now but they are in reality thugs. But letting it all go and enjoying the ride is what this movie is about and what a ride. Mini bike getaways, firework rocket missles and near misses as the glowing teeth just skim by. Gore and death are detailed and a few horror moments make it a nightmare enducer for the 13 and unders. Lots of pot smoking and time spent in amongst a hydro room set up but again some classic lines takes the edge of it all. Great indie flick. .And look out for mayhem - wickid.

Underrated Masterpiece

This movie is great for teens! It shows usual stuff you'd see in hood culture ( violence, drugs, and profanity ) but it shows a great turn for the great or good. I highly suggest it for all families with teens
