The World's End - movie review

From August 26, 2013


Wow! Love it. So funny.

The final act in the loose Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy by Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg, and Nick Frost. The other two films being ‘Shaun of the Dead’ and ‘Hot Fuzz’. My favorite of their films is still ‘Hot Fuzz’ but this one is pretty damn good, too.

The film starts out as a getting-the-band-back-together buddy buddy film about 40-somethings that try to relive their youth by pub crawling all the way to the end of town, ending at The World’s End pub. But the film takes a drastic and violent turn at one point and becomes a completely different film. This may turn some people off, as it did my fiancee, but I love twists in films. I HATE movies that I can guess what’s going to happen. There’s no way of guessing what’s in store for you when you watch ‘The World’s End’.

Hilarious stuff. I hope they make another in the Three Flavours Cornetto series.
