It’s Allan’s (Robert Gustafsson) hundredth birthday but he’s not interested in celebrating in the retirement home he lives in. Instead he stages a break-out and goes on a journey that takes him much further than expected and makes him recall the most important stops in his life. And while Allan certainly isn’t the smartest person, there are many stops in his life that are important to European history in general.
The Centenarian… is basically the European attempt at Forrest Gump. Only that it didn’t work quite as well.
Terry (Rasmus Hardiker) and Andy (Harry Treadaway) are brothers and have been brought up by their grandfather (Alan Ford) who is now living in a retirement home. But that home is threatened by real estate development. Since the boys don’t want to see their grandfather living anywhere else, they decide that they would rob a bank with the help of their cousin Katy (Michelle Ryan) and Mental Mickey (Ashley Bashy Thomas). But in the middle of that robbery, the zombie apocalypse happens and suddenly they face quite a different challenge.
Cockneys vs. Zombies is fun, even if it doesn’t quite reach the comedic heights of Shaun of the Dead. But I did have a very good time.
