4.0 out of 5 stars `Walks into a tree zombie', 15 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gangsters Guns And Zombies [DVD] [2012] (DVD)
`Gangsters Guns and Zombies' is a thoroughly endearing low budget British zombie flick, which delivers more than just the three points listed in the title. This is with out a doubt a low budget movie but I must stress the production value is remarkably high, it looks filmic and the director (Matt Mitchell) has taken time to treat us to some really striking imagery. Definitely would love to see what the GGZ crew could actually do with a budget.

In brief, 'Gangsters' flee a zombie-infested city, leaving a sea of slapstick zombie humour in their wake. The film develops as an increasingly charming road movie, with cockney expletive a plenty and no shortage of the aforementioned `Guns', the bank robbers goal is a safe house in the country and they don't intend to let anything get in their way.

The characters are genuine, Tony (Huggy Leaver, briefly of `Lock Stock And Two Smoking Barrels') plays a great straight man to the ludicrous carnage, notching up a non-to shoddy body count. Q (Vincent Jerome) embarks on a welcome and convincing romantic excursion with Cassie (Cassandra Orhan). A very attractive and talented actress, expertly cast, she works really well along side Q (you must watch the out takes at the end, I was in stitches). The zombies undoubtedly deserve credit, as do all low budget zombie volunteers, but especially in this instance their acting talent was called upon to fill the roles of, for example: `Football team zombie 1', `Fat zombie medieval reenactor knight 6', and my favourite, `Walks into a tree zombie', hilarious.

GGZ is a good laugh, looks great and unlike a lot of low budget zombie films, it has a script. It's fun and much smarter and sleeker than the cover and soundtrack suggests. I don't miss the overabundant cheesy CGI decapitations or the unconvincing burning cityscapes we're used to, this film is perhaps, dare I say it a little more grown up, but just a little.
