The timing of this movie couldn't be much worse — it's about an alien invasion of a South London estate, with the hoodies and chavs as the heroes. Well, they need all the good publicity they can get, I suppose.

For a somewhat darker depiction of Britain's yoof, try Harry Brown. Superb Michael Caine performance in what is frankly a deeply unpleasant film.
