  • You may protest that this is just a splattery feature-length sketch, and you'd be absolutely right. Why not have a laugh at this absurdly trite concept?

  • As subtle as its title, "Cockneys vs. Zombies" is mildly funny and easily likable.

  • [Hoene] set out to make a funny, fast-moving gross-out zombie flick, nothing beyond that, and he has succeeded with style.

  • 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.

  • "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.

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

    This movie had no right to be as good or as funny as it was, The humour will only be funny to British viewers though, The cast are very likable and are all funny, It's pretty gory in places and it had some fun but silly action scenes, Nothing memorable but if you read the title of the film and still want to watch it then you surely must know what to expect from it.

    Cockneys versus Zombies -- not much mystery to what this film is about. It's silly and fun, also as the absurd title would suggest. If you're not looking for anything serious, this film is a good way to pass the time.

    This is what happens when Shaun of the Dead and Guy Ritchie's first two films have drunken sex with each other. So this movie isn't all that inventive, but they take those familiar pieces and they're woven into an entertaining package. This film doesn't have the heart of Shaun of the Dead or the consistent quick-witted dialogue of Lock, Stock...or Snatch. But, again, I think the script is still full of many funny moments and the cast clearly was having a blast doing this movie, so that definitely translates on-screen. So even if the film doesn't have a gigantic budget, you're still having a fun time watching the flick rather than concentrating on the technical deficiencies. And to be honest, the film doesn't look that bad. I've certainly seen worse looking films that look like they were shot on the cheapest camera available. There's also some really clever usage of gore in this film. There's some genuinely hilarious lines in the film, the main problem of it is that they're not particularly consistent. The film's first half is infinitely funnier than the film's second half, where it almost feels like the film ran out of jokes to throw out. It's not that the action-heavy second half of the film is bad, it's just that it's not as interesting as the humorous interactions between the characters. There's also this one "serious" scene where one of the characters goes to check on her sister, only to find out that she's already dead. It wasn't bad, and it was certainly a good idea to try this, but it felt completely out of place and it doesn't really lead to anything later on in the movie, so it feels like it was just there just for the sake of giving the film a little more depth. And I feel that they failed, because nothing changes about the character that has to go through that. She isn't hardened by the experience, she doesn't realize that nothing will ever be the same again. The film goes back to being the silly, fun comedy it had been prior to that. Almost like that scene didn't happen, so it makes me question what the purpose was of that scene. So they second half of film, while still entertaining, definitely stumbles and it climaxes with a very corny speech from Alan Ford about how the east end of London will overcome this situation, like it has done in the past and blah blah. I think the film is still entertaining, but it definitely falls a step or two behind the first half of the film. Still, this is mostly a lighthearted horror film in the likes of Shaun of the Dead. Clearly, if your favorite horror film is SOTD, then this'll be right up your alley. It won't match Shaun's greatness, but that doesn't stop this from being a solid, fun romp.

    The British have a knack for making zom-coms, I guess. Though nowhere as good as Shaun and his gang, it's fun to watch Cockneys taking on a zombie apocalypse.
