Movie Review – Hot Fuzz

Saw on DVD
Rating – A-

A top London cop (Simon Pegg) is ready to die of boredom when his superiors transfer him to a sleepy English village to work alongside a blundering but well-meaning young constable (Nick Frost). Craving some real action, the big-city bobby may just get his wish when the town begins to stir with a series of grisly “accidents.” Is foul play afoot in this seemingly idyllic hamlet? Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead) directs.

The boys had seen this in the theater so I am playing catch up. Simon Pegg is a hilarious. First “Shaun of the Dead” and now this – if this guy makes a movie you go see it. Simple as that.

  1. there is a lot of funny things in this movie that will get bypassed if you are not up on UK TV or movies. The scene where he first comes into town and song is playing is from a TV show from the comedy team of French and Saunder called Claterford.

    My wife & I rolled…

  2. I watched this movie over the weekend and I must say, I wasn’t really impressed. While I absolutely love Shaun of the Dead, this movie doesn’t come close. I desperately tried to love it because of the previous movie, but I couldn’t get myself to do so. Being a huge fan of the movie Point Break, I found the PB reference scenes hilarious.

    I’d give this movie a single star.
