Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"You may protest that this is just a splattery feature-length sketch, and you'd be absolutely right. Why not have a laugh at this absurdly trite concept?"
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"The oldsters are feisty - a gun-totin' granny is played by Pussy Galore herself, "Goldfinger's" Honor Blackman - but the shtick's as flat as old ale."
‑ Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"Maybe it's me, but after all the bloated, clanging, FX-driven summer tent poles, I'm partial to a gentle genre horror comedy that has gooey guts - but doesn't throw the heart out with the steaming entrails."
‑ Thelma Adams, Yahoo! Movies
"A satisfying, enormously likable genre cocktail, Cockneys vs. Zombies not only delivers upon its title promise, but does so with wit and fleet-of-foot aplomb."
‑ Brent Simon,
"A great and hilarious zombie picture with plenty of in-jokes about zombie lore and the London culture."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"As subtle as its title, "Cockneys vs. Zombies" is mildly funny and easily likable."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
""Cockneys vs. Zombies" might as well be "Babies vs. Zombies" or "Cats vs. Zombies" - strictly for addicts who don't care where their undead fix comes from."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"This low-budget entry doesn't add much to the overpopulated recent roster of zombie flicks"
‑ Todd Jorgenson,
" get what you asked for: there are Cockney accents in this film, and there are zombies. Somebody had to ask for it, so here it is."
‑ Gabe Toro, The Playlist
"A horror-comedy hoot a la "Shaun of the Dead" but I actually enjoyed this one a little more. Matthias Hoene directs the knowing, very funny script with aplomb."
‑ Fr. Chris Carpenter, Movie Dearest
"[Hoene] set out to make a funny, fast-moving gross-out zombie flick, nothing beyond that, and he has succeeded with style."
‑ Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
"Weightless as a bag of crisps, this matinee fare offers more laughs than scares."
‑ Rob Staeger, Village Voice
"[Blu-ray Review] Director Matthias Hoene gives the derivative tale a refreshing wit to go along with the flit pacing and imaginative gore."
‑ Dustin Putman,
"Cockneys vs. Zombies quickly overcomes its dull-as-death titling and turns out to be the best zombie yuk-fest since Edgar Wright broke new, unhallowed ground with Shaun of the Dead nearly a decade ago."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
"Technical proficiency notwithstanding, basic storytelling lapses doom Cockneys Vs. Zombies to the realm of the second-rate and sloppy, all the way to a finale so abrupt and inconclusive, it's as if the filmmakers grew weary of their own undead endeavor."
‑ Nick Schager, The Dissolve
