Hot Fuzz

Action/comedy from the makers of Shaun of the Dead. Officer Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) is London's top copper. This tough law enforcer is good at his job - so good, in fact, that he makes his colleagues look bad. As a result, his superiors "promote" him to the village of Sandford, where all is garden parties and neighborhood watch meetings. Partnered with Danny Butterman (Nick Frost), an oafish but well-meaning young local cop, Angel struggles to adapt. He strikes some luck when a series of grisly accidents indicates that foul play is afoot. Suddenly, this seemingly idyllic town is a case that Angel has to crack.

A by-the-book top cop and his bozo sidekick uncover murder and mayhem in a picturesque English village in "Hot Fuzz," a straight-faced British spoof of everything from Yank crimers and slasher pics to Agatha Christie whodunits and homoerotic U.S. buddy movies. Third theatrical feature by young English helmer Edgar Wright, teaming again with "Shaun of the Dead" actors Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, comes up with a sustained genre parody that's equally funny but (maybe in deference to the genre) much more pumped up....

Even without the inspired idea of Shaun Of The Dead it’s an easy match for laughs, and marks Nick Frost as a vital part of this team’s appeal. The boys (now in blue) have done it again...

True, it's not nearly as dead-on as instant classic Shaun, its cop movie targets a little too soft, too easy. And yes, it needs trimming, a turgid second half too self-indulgent for its own good. But it's a movie you'll still want to see again...

Not as good as Shaun of the Dead...

...but in many ways, Shaun of the Dead wasn't as good as this. Movie of the year, although frankly it hasn't had much competition.

really worth watching

This movie is definitely worth paying around 13 bucks for... I really enjoyed this movie from beginning to end as the storyline and the acting were brilliant. Thus there was not a single moment during the film where I found it boring..However I agree that not everyone would like it...and just giving a head up to the girls; there are few gruesome parts in...

Wicked!

Ok so the storyline isn't exactly rocket science. It's totally random! That's what makes it a classic! Pack your sense of humour and you're sure to enjoy this film. It's not supposed to be taken seriously but if you notice all the subtle references to other films and the ridiculous premise of much of the plot (deliberately done, so genius!) you will laugh...

Hot Fuzz over rated

Uses a lot of noise to disguise the fact that not a lot is going on. Quite funny at times all the same, but a bit long. Leave your brain at home.
