Hot Fuzz (Review)


Plot

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.

Pros

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.

Cons

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.

Score

4.5 out of 5

Fun Fact: Peter Jackson makes a cameo as a man dressed as Santa Claus.

  1. Is there some Simon Pegg holiday going on that I don’t know about? Everybody is reviewing his stuff the past couple of days! Excellent review though – I love this film! Also didn’t realize Peter Jackson had a cameo which makes it that much more excellent!

    • There might be some super secret Simon Pegg fan club that just happens to celebrate his films during the end of September, but I know nothing about that. 😛 I love Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, they are probably the best comedy duo of the past 10 years, though I’m only saying that because I can’t think of any others right now.

      Also, Cate Blanchett plays his girlfriend, the one with the doctor mask over her mouth in the beginning.
