2 brothers decide to rob a bank.  There reason is pretty sweet, but their skills aren’t.  The bank manager alerts the police and soon they’re surrounded.  They make an escape plan which involves taking hostages, but when they get outside they find the police dead and zombies everywhere.

This movie is very funny.  Very.  Love the old people at the retirement home that the crooks try to eventually save.  There is the best chase scene ever involving a man with a walker.  It was hysterical.  Just watch it and see.

One of the zombies in the film looks an awful lot like the “backyard zombie” in the robe in Shaun of the Dead.  We think it’s a blatant homage.  Whatever it is though, it’s good.

COCKNEY-master1050 The movie has cool death scenes, it followed the rules it laid out and it had an awesome and optimistic script – which I feel is nice and pleasantly different. The acting is nice and it’s a smart story with a good beginning, middle and end.  No boob shots, but still a very fun watch.  Only 2 people in the whole thing were really annoying, so we were happy that so many of them survive.

Our score: 90/100.

About TaraRomero

I suppose I could list my favorite movies here, but instead I'll give you a strange glimpse into what makes me TaraRomero. 1. I love comic books. I'm particularly into anything X-Men related and everything Harley Quinn. 2. My celebrity crush is Chris Evans (AKA Captain America). He's even more political than I am and he's not afraid to show it, plus he's really, really hot. 3. I love baseball and more importantly the Boston Red Sox, even though I've never even been to Boston. LOL 4. If I won the lottery tomorrow, after paying off my debts, I'd buy a smallish house somewhere in Southern California. I have got to get out of Texas. 5. My cartoon hero is Tina Belcher. Her and I share a soul. 6. I've been rescuing dogs since I was a teenager and firmly believe that fur babies belong inside and on the furniture. 7. I'm very much addicted to Hallmark Channel. I love their sappy movies, especially the Christmas ones. 8. I have 2 tattoos. An "E" on my ankle for my first lost fur baby. And a ladybug on my wrist named George after George Romero told me he liked it. May he RIP. 9. I'm a bit of a night owl. Not that I go out a lot, it's just that I prefer to be up at night and asleep during the day. I'm a vampire like that. 10. I have an unhealthy relationship with potato chips. My favorite are Herr's Sour Cream & Onion.
