WARNING: SPOILERS IN THIS REVIEW!

Edgar Wright, the director of this movie, also directed another movie I really liked and gave an 8/10, that is Shaun of The Dead. Edgar Wright has also directed Scott Pilgrim, a 7/10, and the World's End, which I haven't seen yet. However, so far, Hot Fuzz is his best movie. It is absolutely perfect in every way, comedy and action.

This movie stars Simon Pegg as Nicholas Angel, a city cop who gets moved to the small town of Sanford, a normal town, looking to win the Village of The Year award. When he gets there, he is promoted to Sergeant. He meets his partner, Danny Butterman(Nick Frost), and his father, Inspector Frank Butterman(Jim Broadbent). It seems like a normal job there, but eventually, people start getting killed by a mysterious murderer, but the town all proclaims them as accidents. Nicholas and Danny are going to figure out who is doing this and why.

To be honest, I am not a big fan of comedy movies. With a few exceptions, I usually just sit through them, not laughing at all. Shaun of the Dead and Scott Pilgrim were both hilarious movies. However, this movie was much better than both of them. Let me be straight here, this movie was the funniest comedy I have seen yet. Every joke in this movie works. EVERY SINGLE JOKE! They all come at you very fast, and if you aren't paying attention, you might miss quick jokes, and references to previous quotes in the movie, so stay alert.

This movie also does a very great job at parodying action movies. Most of the movie, the two main characters are talking about how stuff in action movies doesn't really work in real life. But, in the last 30 minutes, every single action cliche ever is used in some way. There are many one-liners that are references to things characters said. Every character is important in this movie, so you'll have to remember them all.

WARNING: SPOILERS IN THE NEXT PARAGRAPH



This movie is great for the first hour and 15 minutes or so. But, after that, the movie gets better. It is revealed that pretty much everyone in the town, including Danny's father, are in on the murders in some way. Why were these people killed? Well, for annoying laughs, for bad acting, for having a bad-looking house, for misspelling words in a newspaper, and for moving away. This part had me on the floor laughing. It was one of the funniest scenes i've ever seen in a movie. There was one part at the very end that was kind of random, by that I mean a character randomly comes back to try and kill Nicholas, but that's a very very minor flaw in an otherwise perfect movie.

Score for Hot Fuzz: 10/10. I very highly reccomend this movie. For fans of humor that isn't stupid(kind of like American comedy movies most of the time) this is a superb movie. Running gags, dark humor, call backs, this movie has every type of humor. An absolute must watch right now, Seirously, stop what you are doing, and watch this movie NOW!!!

Here's a review for Hot Fuzz I found on IMDB:

"Everyone compares this total piece of crap to Shawn of the Dead. Who cares? A movie should stand on it's own. I didn't see Shawn, and won't. Fuzz is boring, long, stupid, not funny. There is no character development. Just an excuse for car chases, explosions and shoot outs. The fast editing and sound effects were distracting and more for the ego of the director than the viewing pleasure of the audience. How bad was it? A recurring theme is the main character's house plant! The film is full of stupid, gratuitous violence. I agree with people who say that the rating is fixed. Are the British so desperate for foreign exchange that they all got together to praise and highly rate this film, so the rest of the suckers around the world would buy or rent it?

Really? Does he realize all of the action sequences were a PARODY of action movie cliches.

"Have you seen Shaun Of The Dead? Yes? Then don't bother with this, it's pretty much a very similar film. They even copy the shortcut scene over the back gardens.

Pegg plays Angel, a cop injured in a stabbing who is sent from London to the countryside as his arrest record is making the rest of the Met look bad.

Angel starts as he means to go on, kicking all the kids out of the local pub and arresting what turns out to be his partner for drunk driving. Drunk driving isn't funny. And never will be. So that joke was always going to bomb.

We're faced with stars like Timothy Dalton and Jim Broadbent really desperate for money? They must be to appear in this rubbish.

Basically Frost & Pegg watched Bad Boys 2 (which is awful) and Point Break and decided to take all the best bits from both films (that must be all of about 3 seconds?) and put them in their movie.

This clearly shows a very obvious fact "We don't have any ideas of our own".

The film was rubbish, the action scenes were far too over the top and didn't help the pace of the film.

This could have been so much better and the film was sold on Pegg and Frost. Not on what the script contained."

I don't think the idea was that they had no ideas of their own.

"They talk too much =P"


"Yeah sure hilarious comedy until your ears starts to bleed after listening to pages of script containing characters words. After 35 min I thought Monty Python was 1 million times better to watch so I took the opportunity to watch some delightful episodes of Faulty Towers because the lines there are 500% more fun and you laugh constantly. However there must be at least 1 page of 10 point text between the funny stuff on Hot Fuzz and I am really disappointed if someone even consider this movie to be funny.

I need to lie down because I have soar ears and a headache after 45 min of Hot Fuzz... or rather White Noize in my ears."

The World's End:

Now, we all know what I thought of Edgar Wright's other movies. Here's a recap.
Shaun of The Dead: 8/10
Hot Fuzz: 10/10
Scott Pilgrim: 7/10

Overall, a pretty good director. The World's End is the last movie of a so-called "trilogy," and this movie is one awesome movie. It was funny, it had great action scenes, and it got suprisingly emotional at times. Not emotional, like crying, but just emotional in general. Anyway, on to the review.

This movie stars Simon Pegg as Gary King, an adult who once went on a bar crawl when he was a teen with his four other friends. They didn't make it to the end, so Gary is going to round up his friends, Andy, Oliver, Peter, and Steven (played by Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, Eddie Marsan, and Paddy Considine) to get through all 12 pubs, the final one being called The World's End(kind of like the title) Also along for the ride is Oliver's sister Sam(played by Rosamund Pike before she was very well known). But, they discover something very disturbing about their hometown. People have been replaced by robot-like beings, who are trying to have everyone in the town become one of them. So, Gary and his friends will try to blend in and finish their pub crawl.

This movie, in one word, could be summed up as entertaining. The movie was very witty, and while not as funny as Hot Fuzz, still had some really good laughs. But, it's not just the humor that is entertaining, it is also the action scenes. There are about 3 action scenes in this movie, and they are all very well filmed, coreographed, and performed. The whole thing was just tons of fun, really.

It's also very well acted. Simon Pegg is playing a complete loser in this movie, who's only real puropse in life now is to finish this crawl(he has no job). Everyone else in the cast does a good job too. Nick Frost was hilarious as usual, and everyone else was fine. There is also a brief cameo by former James Bond Pierce Brosnon, who does a pretty good job in his role.

WARNING: SPOILERS IN THIS PARAGRAPH

This movie is great right up until the last twenty minutes or so, then it kind of faulters out. Basically, Gary reaches the final pub, is about to drink the last pint, and is stopped by Andy in a very emotional scene that is much different fromthe overall tone of the movie. Eventually, they find a hidden chamber where they find The Network(voiced by Bill Nighy). Then there is some weird plan that just fell flat on me. I didn't really want to know this whole long plan, I really didn't care. Then, Gary makes all of the "blanks" leave just by arguing with them, a realitively funny scene. Finally, the whole town blows up because of their departure. Then there's five more minutes of what happened after, and I just don't give a ****. This lowered the movie's score by a point.

The World's End: 8/10

Ok, the ending may suck a little, but everything else about this movie is great. Acting, story, humor, action, all of it is top-notch. If you liked Edgar Wright's other films, you are probably going to like this one. On a side not, there was a lot of **** foreshadowing in this movie. Like, way more than the other two.

I liked the scene where Andy and Gary were arguing, and the scene where the three of them were arguing with the network, and one partod the epilogue. That's about it.

I loved the very end, where the movie turns the tables and the robots become the innocent victims.  I think the best scene is the last one in the film where Simon Pegg finds his calling by fighting racism with a sword and an army of robots.

I thought it pretty much went to **** after the twist. It was entertaining and funny before that though.
