The zombies don't stand a chance against these scrappy cockneys

A gang of bumbling bank robbers and a motley assortment of spunky senior citizens have to fight their way out of a zombie-infested London. Okay, so the trite premise doesn't break any new ground, but fortunately director Matthias Hoene brings plenty of go-for-it verve and a galvanizing flashy cinematic style to compensate for the dearth of originality: The snappy pace rarely flags for a minute, the tongue-in-cheek tone hits the right engaging spot, there's a handy helping of graphic gore, the characters are colorful and likeable, and we even get a few moments of touching humanity amid all the wacky carnage.

Moreover, it's acted with zest by an enthusiastic cast, with especially lively contributions from Rasmus Hardiker as the brash Terry, Harry Treadway as the earnest Andy, Michelle Ryan as feisty Katy, Jack Doolan as inept dolt Davey Tuppence, Georgia King as the sassy Emma, Alan Ford as the tough take-charge Ray, Honor Blackman as the two-fisted Peggy, Georgina Hale as the flirty Doreen, Dudley Sutton as jolly cripple Eric, Richard Briers as the doddery Hamish, and Ashley Thomas as unhinged psycho Mental Mickey. The witty script by James Moran and Lucas Roche boasts lots of hysterical cockney slang. The slick widescreen cinematography by Daniel Banks spruces things up with such snazzy flourishes as wipes and split screen. A total hoot.

The only Zombies are the ones who made this

What can I say? There are people on here rating this God awful film 10/10 who must think this kind of disposable fan-fiction dross is as good as A Clockwork Orange, Witness for the Prosecution, 12 Angry Men, The Godfather, Oldboy, & Shawshank Redemption.

The writing of this is trivial, childish, & imitative. The people who wrote this shlock do not know what it is to contribute a new vision. Instead, they obviously smoked a lot of weed & amalgamated one liners from all the top 10 most typical British films they thought was funny. There isn't a single line of dialogue that doesn't make the British sound like retards.

The visuals & sound are so bad that you'll be burying your head in your hand. The shots have NO geography, or correlation. The pace of the Editing is all over the place. It's like they glued everything that was filmed together, & cut nothing out. They are going for this music video style, but it just looks cheap & uninteresting. Nothing looks real.

The sound is beyond disastrous. The Guns are quieter than the engines, the layering of sound effects is intrusive, where as the dialogue is passive. Probably because there's so much of it. They never.. ever.. shut up. Ever. The music is the offensively trite pseudo-orchestra stabs & crescendos we're all too sick of hearing on You Tube projects. It goes on & on & on, but it is never allowed to add mood or emotional content, because the dialogue is haha hehe funny.

The effects is obviously where all the money went. But don't get excited. It's a hybrid cgi/in-cam mix, but there is never a moment where you think it looks real. Maybe there was a shortage of squibs? But the cgi bullet holes, gun sparks, & blood splatter was extremely distracting. Why are my PS4 Games more realistic than films now?

The characters all curse like school kids which takes away the impact of such words. Their reactions are phoned in, the actors are clearly not invested, & all show as much emotion as the Zombies. As always, there are no Muslims, Orientals, Indians, Asians, Europeans, Scots/Irish/Welsh etc. Instead, you have 1 black guy acting like a White Millwall hooligan; the dumbest of the lot, but he gets killed off - much to the audience's relief. If you think it can't get any more cliché, think again. Because there is also a dark haired spinster with a black leather jacket & a "Girl-Power" strut. She acts out the vision of what the writer desires to be; tough, edgy, invincible, sexy, cool, & competent.

I could go on, but I just want to forget this film asap. It has a 5.9 rating, which is generous. But I know that this shall fade away into obscurity along with all the other frivolous incompetent films of this nature. And trust me, it is the best thing that could happen to this film. I haven't seen anything as bad as this since A Million Ways to Die In The West [2014]. It's THAT bad.

Cockneys vs Zombies is one of the classics in the "Versus Zombies" genre.

Gotta love the Cockneys! Almost giving up on the zombie genre, this film re-awakened the interest. From the dialogue to the story-line, this is non-stop action. The corniness adds to the excitement. It's been awhile since I seen this movie, but I can remember it left a good impression on the cinematography, story and dialogue. It's also utterly ridiculous. I'm not even British! Love it! This movie is inspiring me to make good movies only or stay home! Go Cockneys! In the first 5 minutes, you can tell if a movie is worth watching or not. Hope they make a sequel. Rofl.
