Director: Matthias Hoene
My Short Review: Used to direct commercials, music videos and webseries, Matthias Hoene, young English director, signs here his first feature film. And he manages to bring into his project veteran actors like Alan Ford (owner of the wicked pigs in “Snatch”) and Honor Blackman (Goldfinger). With Cockneys and Zombies he gives us another good entry into the Horror Comedy Genre. And plenty of british humor that is: mixing elements such as zombies, guns and random “SHAUN OF THE DEAD” hommage, “Cockneys VS ZOMBIES” is definitively a fun ride.
There is something really exhilarating to watch old people shooting down zombies with powerful guns and the movies play out those scenes creatively, especially when a zombie tries to catch an old man who fled with his walker … It’s stupid, filmed with the utmost seriousness and probably the best moment of the film!
Cockneys vs Zombies is a crowd-pleasing feel-good movie that screams for a sequel, that I hope we will have the chance to see.
My Rating: 7/10
