    Good review. I enjoyed this film, it was a different take on the whole alien envasion idea.

    Good review Shah. Pretty solid flick, even if it does feel like it’s “Too British” at times for my own wit.

      Same here man. But once I could understand what they were saying (subtitles!) I got into it. I deleted a lot of comments in my Review imitating “Brit Talk”, but good judgement got the better of me. 😐

    I still haven’t seen this yet, though I generally like Edgar Wright’s style. I was actually at the Comic-con panel a few years back and the trailer does look intriguing, though yeah, I probably turn on the subtitles too, ahah. Seems rather gory as well though.

      It’s not a usual Edgar Wright film. Not as good anyways. But has its moments. The gore is alright. Actually, it is gory. Lol.

      Damn your Comic Con experience. One day.
