Cockneys vs Zombies: Dawn of the Eastenders

February 5, 2014

Cockneys vs. Zombies tells the age old story of east Londoners vs. zombies. It is a relaxed breath of fresh air that allows the cast to crack wise while figuring out how to kill a zombie with a metal plate in its head. CvZ is a neat entry to the zombie canon that proves soccer hooligans will still fight when they are dead.

Cockneys vs. Zombies centers around two ne’er-do-well who are trying to save a retirement home from a bunch of Condo loving “yuppie twats.” However, as they are robbing a bank the outbreak occurs and zombie babies started getting punted (into anti-violence signs). The story splits between the old folks home where the pensioners gamely battle the undead and the group of bank robbers trying rescue the geriatrics.

It is a blast watching Pussy Galore shoot zombies while Brick Top from Snatch snarls, barks and shows his age. The old folks are down for the violence and they make many zombie heads explode.

The final showdown features head getting smooshed via fake legs and quite possibly the longest/slowest foot chase in history. It is a hilarious watching Hector from Monarch of the Glen sneak away from the zombie hoard.

Cockneys vs. Zombies simply wants to be entertaining. It wears its cheekiness on its sleeve and asks for a little bit of attention. If you are a zombie completest and are looking for a pleasant (albeit bloody) distraction CvZ is for you.
