Careful, Zombies: Granddad Lived Through the Blitz
with Harry Treadaway and Alan Ford
There’s not much difference between regular English soccer fans and the undead variety in “Cockneys vs Zombies”: Even when expired, they’re still ready to rumble with anyone wearing the colors of a rival team.
And that’s pretty much the point of this spirit-of-the-Blitz comedy from Matthias Hoene. Filled with East End grit and “EastEnders” escapees, the ragtag story is merely an excuse to remind us, all too emphatically, that Londoners won’t lie down. So when a zombie horde is loosed from a 17th-century vault by two startled construction workers, its chomping progress is less terrifying to residents than galvanizing.

I gave it 3/10 in BS #31.
Even Michelle Ryan couldn't save it from a mess of cliches.

I thought it was new but it did seem vaguely familiar. That explains it. Cheers Tony.
