Cockneys Versus Zombies * * *

The story of Cockneys Versus Zombies is exactly what you would expect from the title.   In this respect, it is somewhat predictable.  It invites comparison to the slightly better Shaun of the Dead or the much better Attack the Block.    So why should you see it?   Because it is a dark comedy that will make you care about the characters for 90 minutes.   The humor is pretty low key, but combine that with the zombie story and it manages to entertain.

Zombie movies have become way too abundant.   Consider the following joke from the movie:  

“You have to shoot them in the head!”
“How do you know that?”
“Everybody knows that!”
