  • Summary: In this action-packed comedy from the makers of "Shaun of the Dead," Nicholas Angel (Pegg) is the finest police officer London has to offer, with an arrest record 400% higher than any other officer on the force. He's so good, he makes everyone else look bad.

He's so good, he makes everyone else look bad. As a result, Angel's superiors send him to a place where his talents won't be quite so embarrassing -- the sleepy and seemingly crime-free village of Sandford. A small village is about to get some big city justice. (Rogue Pictures) Expand

    The good humor bubbles up from a deep reservoir of affection for Hollywood schlock.
  2. It's not hard to imagine these characters in a straight-faced Hollywood blockbuster. And that's the source of Hot Fuzz's genius, pointing out the thin line that separates convention from farce when Hollywood starts throwing its special effects around.
  3. If you see Hot Fuzz, you'll never again watch a Michael Bay film without howling with disrespectful laughter.
  4. 80
    At once deeply affectionate and sharply observed: There's never anything smart-alecky about Wright's approach as a director.
  5. The most originally funny movie to hit U.S. screens in a while.
  6. With Hot Fuzz, you'll just have to settle for semi-hilarity.
  7. All the action is staged with energy, but it gets relentless without anything really funny going on.

    It's a breath of fresh air to watch a movie which is more than just pointing the camera at an actor and telling them to say something funny,It's a breath of fresh air to watch a movie which is more than just pointing the camera at an actor and telling them to say something funny, but instead is stylish, hilarious, action packed, and beautifully uses both audio and visuals to create jokes and laughs through out instead of just a punchline here and there Expand

    Very funny and full of silly and fun action and an impressive storyline makes me want to watch it over and over again.

    While not as good as Shaun of the Dead, of course what is, this was a blast although a bit slow at first.

    By far the best of the cornetto trilogy. Finally a good proper story with some actually funny moments and impressive action sequences as well.By far the best of the cornetto trilogy.

    I liked the British humor, there were some good action scenes, and there were a couple of clever twists. The bad: I think it was a bit too I liked the British humor, there were some good action scenes, and there were a couple of clever twists. The bad: I think it was a bit too long (2hr 1min) and the close-ups combined with quick cuts got a little annoying. Even if someone is either from Virginia or connected with VT in some way, you can't really complain about the violence. The previews clearly show that there are some shootouts in the movie and it's not like you are being forced to see the movie---buying a ticket means you made the choice to see it. Expand

    One of the worst films I've ever seen. The slam-bang editing was used to cover up the fact that nothing interesting, talented or funny One of the worst films I've ever seen. The slam-bang editing was used to cover up the fact that nothing interesting, talented or funny was going on. It has an overbearing sound mix from hell. A total assault on my senses and sensibilities. Now original wit or creativity at all. Don't wast your time. Major disappointment on all levels. Expand
