Super cop Nicolas Angel get promoted and transferred to the quiet town of Sandford where there is no crime. Soon, Nicolas finds that not all is what it seems…and it’s a comedy.
The movie is hilarious. I could pretty much just leave it at that but I won’t. Nick Frost and Simon Pegg are hilarious, you’d know them from Shaun of the Dead or Paul, and the two have amazing chemistry. The supporting cast is huge, with some really recognizable names and faces. It’s pretty violent, but not as violent as their previous movie, Shaun of the Dead.
While the movie is hilarious, it wasn’t as great as Shaun of the Dead. While this stands out as one of the best action comedies, there still are better ones.
