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.

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...
