The World's End

The third and final installment in Edgar Wright's f**king brilliant Blood and Ice Cream trilogy. The World's End is Nostalgic, heartfelt and hilarious. A comedy that hits all the right notes. If there's one thing Simon Pegg and Nick Frost don't lack, it's chemistry. Simon Pegg is Gary King, a man tired of his dull life that wants to relive his teenage years, getting smashed, hooking up with girls, and starting bar fights. Nick Frost is Andy Knightley, grown up and living a successful career that has a complicated past with Gary who he was once friends with. One of my biggest concerns about the film is that they would focus too much on Pegg and Frost, leaving the other characters undeveloped. I was proved wrong. The supporting cast aren't underwritten and have enough screen time to get to know who they are. The witty humour from Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz is here. The action sequences are very impressive, I loved the ending, and it also features an awesome cameo from Pierce Brosnan. Edgar Wright has certainly matured as a director. If you asked me what I didn't like about the movie, I would probably say that it's the last of the trilogy. The World's End is essential viewing.
