Excerpt: There’s a very good chance many won’t agree with this assessment, but thanks to such a massive acceptance from pop culture zombies have now joined vampires as another cinematic monstrosity that has been milked to death and lost its impact. The popularity of zombie projects had been growing steadily until 2010, when "The Walking Dead" hit the scene and took zombie fever to a new height.
Conclusion: 'Cockneys vs. Zombies' is quite a fun and thrilling zombie movie full of laughs and blood. The video and audio presentations are solid with a few quality extras. The gore and zombie deaths look great with some fun characters throughout. If you're a fan of the zombie genre, this is a must own. Highly recommended.
Summary: Zombies may be taking over mass media to an alarming degree, but let's face it, they're not the more articulate of creatures. Given to guttural utterances of largely monosyllabic content, it's rare that a zombie ever even speaks an intelligible word. And yet even armed with that salient piece of information, it was actually the Cockneys I most feared not being able to understand coming into the fanciful and fitfully amusing Cockneys vs. Zombies .
Excerpt: A local senior citizen home is being threatened with foreclosure by a group of unscrupulous developers. When a few of the senior citizen's family members find out, namely Ray's (Alan Ford, Snatch ) grandchildren Andy (Harry Treadway, City of Ember ) and Terry (Rasmus Hardiker, Your Highness ), they plan a daring bank robbery to gather enough money to help keep the elderly residents in their homes. What they don't plan for is the resurrection of the dead!
Conclusion: With a top of the line presentation and a nice slew of extras including 2 detailed commentaries, Cockneys Vs Zombies is an easy recommend. Scream Factory isn’t built on releasing newer titles, but when they pick up something right up their alley like this, it’s a win for everyone. The film itself is a solid dose of fun and zombie action. Fear not if some of the British humor doesn’t land with you, plenty of other jokes and gory kills will tickle your fancy. For every...
Excerpt: Cockneys vs. Zombies is every bit as brilliant as a movie called " Cockneys vs. Zombies " oughtta be. So, there you [click on the thumbnail to enlarge] go. I guess I can wrap up this review right around here. The march of progress! This old folks home on the East End of London is about to be leveled to make way for shiny, new condominiums.
Excerpt: Cockneys vs. Zombies gleefully delivers on the promise of its title, pitting the cockney against the zombie after a tomb, sealed in 1666 by the order of King Charles II, is breached by a pair of construction workers with hopelessly shoddy reflexes. Essentially RocknRolla by way of Shaun of the Dead , though less deliriously plot-contorting than the former and less pop-culturally aware than the latter, Matthias Hoene's horror-comedy sees a bunch of mates robbing a bank in...
Summary: Blu-Ray Review: I can't imagine this film is a keeper for anyone, but the competent presentation on this release will make it a confident rental for those wanting to find out if there is a second joke here apart from the title.
