Zombie film these days seem to either be pathetic, or scarey. All the resident evil films have sort of rolled into one, 28 days/months/ whatever it is I have always found a bit terrible, and since dawn of the dead, there haven't really been any notable zombie films that haven't had a comedy effect to them (if you can think of any, please comment, I am on the look out for good zombie films).
Cockneys vs zombies is an interesting take on the old zombie film. IN this film, a group of criminals attempt to rob a bank, and when they come out to face the cops, they find london in the grips of a zombie plague. They (and their two hostages) get to the safehouse, only to realise that their grandpa, and old school style cockney gangster in the local carehome might need help. Not only this, but one of them has been bitten, and one of the hostages seems to think the best way to survive is to discuss the moral issues surrounding the various situations, and be way to honest:
"please let us go, we won't tell anyone who you are"
"I will, I will let the police know right away"
Anyway, overall its a pretty brilliant film. What I like about this film is that it didn't start to seriously, you dont get the feeling that the comedy is an afterthought, this film was made to make you laugh. And as it is not too "scary", you never feel that it was trying to be a horror film as well as a comedy film, this really is a film that makes you feel good, nothing quite like watching some people from "LANDAN" tell them LANGUAGE WARNING "Facking zombies where to go" LANGUAGE WARNING.
Overall this film made my chuckle. Its not really a must see film, but if you ever see it about going cheap, I would recommend you pick it up, its a cheap laugh, and is very "re-watchable", just to see hilarious bits like the people in the old people home being mistake for zombies, or watching a group of Cockney mobsters trying to shoot a zombie in the head... who has a metal plate placed over his head. This is the second funniest zombie film I have ever seen, second only to sean of the dead, which seemed to start this whole zombie comedy thing.
Overall then, I give this 4/5.
