Cockneys Vs. Zombies review

91PJk8CH7rL. SL1500 726x1024 Cockneys Vs. Zombies

When some down-on-their-luck old-timers are at risk of losing their home to developers, a group of young, inept criminals decide to take matters into their own hands. The only thing standing in their way? A zombie outbreak in London! Now, it’s up to a bunch of east-enders to fight their way out of the zombie-infested city, led by an unlikely gang of amateur bank robbers and foul-mouthed, plucky pensioners.

Considering the trailers and marketing portrayed this film as being a not-too-serious take on a zombie uprising, I feel they delivered in spades with corney zombie apocalypse humor and over the top cgi action.  That being said, isn’t the ‘action comedy zombie’ film genre getting a little crowded now?  just once I think I’d like to see one where everything goes as it should and the uprising is managed as something that’s just another bit of nature.  Instead, every film has the characters barely self aware of their zombie situation. I was thinking that The Walking Dead might be that, but it turns out that the only thing worse than zombies are people in that universe.

Back to CvZ though, it was a good romp that didn’t take itself seriously, so good for a rental at least.

    The best scene was when the zombies were chasing the old guy in the walker. Neither were very fast, and his friends were screaming, “RUN!!!!”

    It was a much better movie than I expected it to be.
