Robbie Collin - Attacks The Block
Attack The Block gets it’s official release today, and it’s deservedly getting a mass of critical acclaim with a massive 95% rating on Rotten Tomatoes
Surprisingly though, serial quote whore Robbie Collin; the guy who turns up to every single film event wearing a kilt (okay your Scottish, we get it!), absolutely hated ATB, giving it a measly 1 of 5 stars, using the phrase ‘Utter Blocks’ in his harsh, acid tongued review.
Now i’m all for freedom of speech and all, and he’s welcome to his own opinion, unfortunately he has the opinion of a fool and it’s ‘read’ by thousands in Britain’s most popular newspaper, the News of The World. Tragically, his review is likely to deter a few cinema goers, but should his opinion hold any real worth? You decide.
Here’s a few Collin gems…
Insidious: 5/5 - 3/5 at best.
Your Highness: 4/5 - “Monsters, sword-fights, boobs AND laughter? Giveth this a ruddy BAFTA” - What are you, 12?
Sucker Punch: 4/5 - “Looks a lot like either a very stupid person has tried to make a very clever film or a very clever person has tried to make a very stupid one.” - What does this even mean? Sucker Punch 4/5? Seriously?
Eagle: 4/5 - Piss. Off.
Burlesque: 4/5 - Cristina Aguilera and Cher in a film.
Hall Pass: 1/5 - Fair do’s, at least we agree on something.
