Cockneys vs Zombies (2012)

Now, it is finally time to catch-up on one of the last flicks from last weekend that I have yet to review. Having been swamped with Hamlet practice all week for today’s performance, it became harder and harder to focus on stuff as the week progressed. So without further delay, the 2012 zombie comedy Cockneys vs. Zombies.

Plot/ A gang of bank robbers fight their way out of a zombie-infested London.

When I heard of this, I had hoped for something fun with some blood and violence. Guess what, that is exactly what this was, a fun zombie flick with some comedic dialogue and characterizations. Sure, the gore and make-up was hit and miss, but overall, it worked well within the storyline and script. On a down side, some of the performances were flat and there were some holes inside the storyline, but that only detracts a little. In the end, this movie may not have the appeal of Shaun of the Dead, but it is extremely fun and entertaining. Sure, it is not for everyone, but those who get it will enjoy it.
