Cockneys vs. Zombies doesn't offer much ingenuity in the zombie subgenre, but it's a rather enjoyable movie if you're looking for foul-mouthed, gun-toting octogenarians battling hordes of the undead with a caper twist thrown in for good measure.

This frantic lark is a bit more clever and a lot more amiable than most of what passes for "zom-com" these days.

Maybe it's me, but after all the bloated, clanging, FX-driven summer tent poles, I'm partial to a gentle genre horror comedy that has gooey guts - but doesn't throw the heart out with the steaming entrails.

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

[Blu-ray Review] Director Matthias Hoene gives the derivative tale a refreshing wit to go along with the flit pacing and imaginative gore.

A satisfying, enormously likable genre cocktail, Cockneys vs. Zombies not only delivers upon its title promise, but does so with wit and fleet-of-foot aplomb.

Cockneys vs. Zombies quickly overcomes its dull-as-death titling and turns out to be the best zombie yuk-fest since Edgar Wright broke new, unhallowed ground with Shaun of the Dead nearly a decade ago.

A great and hilarious zombie picture with plenty of in-jokes about zombie lore and the London culture.

A horror-comedy hoot a la "Shaun of the Dead" but I actually enjoyed this one a little more. Matthias Hoene directs the knowing, very funny script with aplomb.

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.

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.

An entertaining romp with nitwits and monsters, keeping to the essentials of makeshift warfare while preserving all the necessary funny business. All that's missing from the effort is a translator for American audiences.

"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.

Matthias Hoene allows the cockney swears to flow as deliriously as the truly convincing blood splatter, offering a few unexpected gut-busters along the way.

All that Hoene must do is stage his action well (he does), nail the comedic beats (gets it mostly right) and generally bring enough freshness to the endeavour so that detractors don't bleat "It's not as good as Shaun of the Dead" (which it is).

Stereotype collides with cliché in Cockneys vs. Zombies, but the impact isn't as painful as you might imagine.
