This subgenre is as tired as a walking corpse - with or without Cockneys.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Starring famous East End faces, the likes of Alan Ford are meant to bring a grit and X factor to the film but their catchphrases are nothing more than a cliché.

Technical proficiency notwithstanding, basic storytelling lapses doom Cockneys Vs. Zombies to the realm of the second-rate and sloppy, all the way to a finale so abrupt and inconclusive, it's as if the filmmakers grew weary of their own undead endeavor.

The oldsters are feisty - a gun-totin' granny is played by Pussy Galore herself, "Goldfinger's" Honor Blackman - but the shtick's as flat as old ale.

Like Snakes on a Plane, this is a film that seems content to sit back and let the title do all the work - the flat direction does little to imbue the proceedings with any feeling of tension or surprise.

You couldn't care less about who lives and who dies.

The script has some very funny moments, and the cast is terrific, but the film is too inconsistent to be a classic
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

The genius of Shaun of the Dead haunts this London comedy-horror romp to such a degree that it's almost impossible to enjoy it on its own terms

Richard Briers, Honor Blackman, Dudley Sutton - what were you or your agents thinking of?

"Cockneys vs. Zombies" might as well be "Babies vs. Zombies" or "Cats vs. Zombies" - strictly for addicts who don't care where their undead fix comes from.

This low-budget entry doesn't add much to the overpopulated recent roster of zombie flicks

With less energy than one of Mother Brown's knees-ups but some genuine laughs and crackpot charm, Cockneys vs Zombies is more missed-opportunity than full-on misfire.

Weightless as a bag of crisps, this matinee fare offers more laughs than scares.

I can't exactly call Cockneys vs Zombies an instant cult classic, but I'll absolutely call it a cult hit without hesitation.

Cockneys vs Zombies is the work of a creative team who clearly have a deep reverence towards this type of material, it also has the potential to grow into a future small-screen cult fixture.

It's a zom-com mixed with novice gangster antics and "Cor blimey, guv" dialogue, but with gleefully silly gags, over-the-top performances and a neverending stream of zombie killshots, there's just so much fun to be had.

It might sound like a lazy idea for an iPhone game but a few fresh jokes and lashings of creative gore help it stand out from the shuffling crowd.

A film far better than it has any right to be by title alone.

Delivers in every way a zombie movie should: it's fun, tense in all the right places, and very, very gory.

A satisfying mix of gore and gorblimey charm ...
