Storyline

The whole "zombie thing" has been hyped up so much that everyone thinks it's the end of the world! Of course, where one man sees the dead rising from the grave, another sees opportunity. Q had a plan: drive the robbery getaway van, deliver everyone to the safe house and get paid - a nice, simple, plan. Unfortunately, life is never really that simple, and to top it all off, this is the first time Q has been a getaway driver. He's coping pretty well though, considering; TONY (the guy who is 'in charge' of the job) is a murderous nut case, DANNY was shot and is now bleeding all over the money in the back of the van, the Sat-Nav has a mind of its own, there's a guy in the back living up to his name "CRAZY STEVE", the safe-house already has police at it, and this whole "zombie thing" seems to be quickly becoming more of a "zombie apocalypse thing". Luckily, TONY knows of another Safe House on the coast. Not so luckily, DANNY dies of natural-ish causes and then rises from the grave. Q and ... Written by Matt Mitchell

Must try harder.
17 May 2014 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

2012 UK horror/comedy Cockneys vs Zombies was a pleasant surprise—gory, funny, well paced, with a great cast—but this particular instance of East-end geezers against the living dead, which came out the same year, is far less successful.

Gangsters, Guns & Zombies sees a group of bank-robbers fleeing the scene of the crime only to find themselves caught in a zombie outbreak that has swept the country. Driving to their safe-house, they witness countless attacks on the living by the dead, and decide to head to the coast. On the way, they are forced to make several stops that put their lives in peril.

The main problem with Gangsters, Guns & Zombies is that, while the gangsters are on the road—which is the majority of the time—not a lot of interest happens, and when they do stop the van, little occurs to make the film stand out from the countless other low budget zombie flicks out there. It's the same old same old. The film adds comedy to try and help matters, but the humour is fairly lame, and there's not nearly enough splatter to keep things interesting.

While there are definitely worse zombie films out there, films like this really do have to try harder to distinguish themselves from the competition.
