Don't waste your money or time.

"Siege of the Dead" and "The Horde" are both low budget zombie flicks. They prove you can make good films with very little money. "Gangsters Guns and Zombies" proves you can make appalling films with just as much money.
From the reviews, I guessed this was a "micro" budget film, so wasn't expecting lavish effects, but... well... I was expecting some sort of effects. All you get is people with red liquid splashed on them - way too bright and too red to be blood in most cases.
As for the view of London, a helicopter and a pump action shotgun on the DVD cover? Yeah, right. You get as much of that as you do special effects.
Okay, so you can forgive poor effects and dismal settings if there's a great story with interesting characters.
A pity the screenwriters weren't privy to such information.
The "story" is non-existent.
The characters? Not one is likeable or realistically drawn.
For example (small spoiler), one character is an old woman. The writers obviously thought they'd had a moment of briliance by giving her a double barrel shotgun and a love of the F-word. But the character brought nothing else to the story, so they might just as well have gone the whole hog and given her a wooden leg and a parrot, too!
There's nothing worse than buying a product on the strength of believable reviews and ending up with a piece of junk.
Don't buy this. You'll regret it!
