    Synopsis


    Hot Fuzz
    A top London cop who is so good at his job that he makes his fellow officers look like slackers by comparison is "promoted" to serve in the sleepy village of Sandford in this contemporary action comedy from the creators of Shaun of the Dead. Police constable Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) always gets his man, but these days his impeccable record seems to be more indicative of his fellow officers' shortcomings than his own formidable skills as a keeper of the peace. Loathe to stand idly by as their once respectable track record is steadily soiled by the hyper-competent actions of one lone overachiever, Sergeant Angel's superiors at the Met soon determine to remedy their problem by relocating the decorated constable to the West Country village of Sanford -- where tranquil garden parties and neighborhood watch meetings stand in stark contrast to the violent crime and heated gunplay of the city. As Sergeant Angel does his best to adjust to the relative calm of his new environment, his oafish new partner Danny Butterman (Nick Frost) strives to gain the respect of his fellow constables while sustaining himself on fantasies of his favorite action films and police shows. Later, just as it begins to appear as if Sergeant Angel has been relegated to an uneventful existence in the relative calm of the countryside, a series of horrific "accidents" lead him to suspect that the tranquil hamlet of Sanford has fallen prey to a sinister plot which reeks of foul play. Jim Broadbent, Timothy Dalton, Steve Coogan, and Martin Freeman co-star in the Edgar Wright film. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      A New Brit Comedy Classic

      Posted
      backrowreviews

      Director/co-writer Edgar Wright reteams with star/co-writer Simon Pegg three years after the duo's "Shaun of the Dead" for a very funny and very British comedy about a London police officer who is too good at his job. His efficiency makes his fellow officers and even his superiors look so bad that he is transferred to a remote rural village where nothing ever happens. Until people start turning up dead, that is. Wright keeps the proceedings perfectly balanced between Pegg's deadpan by-the-book seriousness and the colorful eccentricities of various village idiots. The script is not only consistently clever but perfectly structured, with a plot that starts out quite low-key but builds to successive levels of outrageousness. Timothy Dalton, as the oily owner of a local supermarket, manages to be both funny and brazenly villainous. Jim Broadbent is the village's top cop, a relentlessly pleasant twit whose dumb-but-good-natured son (Nick Frost) becomes Pegg's partner. If you're a fan of Guy Ritchie's caper movies, Monty Python's Flying Circus or even (believe it or not) the British TV series "Life on Mars," you will love this movie. There's so much going on here that "Hot Fuzz" actually is more enjoyable the second time around, when you'll be able to pick up lots of clever bits of foreshadowing and character detail you may have missed the first time!

      Wright/Pegg/Frost Action Genius!

      Hot Fuzz is the second installment of the Cornetto Trilogy, following Shaun of the Dead and preceding The World's End. Shaun of the Dead was the troupe's take on a zombie movie, The World's End is their take on a paranoia movie (a la Invasion of the Body Snatchers), and this here is their take on an action/suspense movie. Across all three movies, you'll see many of the same faces, but the roles are always different, so there's the built-in joy of saying "Hey, that was the bartender in the other movie, and the priest in the other other movie," but don't expect recurring characters. A couple of faces unique to this installment are 007 veteran Timothy Dalton and Rory McCann, who you may know as The Hound from Game of Thrones. Brilliantly written and performed, you'll catch jokes and foreshadowing and references more and more each time you watch any of the Cornetto Trilogy movies. Hot Fuzz is likely to be my favorite of the three, which says a lot, considering how great Shaun of the Dead was. Its story is fully understandable for a single viewing, but is really richly understood after several viewings, making it an invaluable home video purchase. Honorable mention for the bonus features as well.

      An uproarious comedy/slam-bang action flick

      Posted
      CrimsonKing42

      Hot Fuzz stands as one of the funniest films I have ever seen. The casting of the film is absolutely flawless, and of course the crack comedic team of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, which was established in Shaun of the Dead, is spot-on. This time around, Pegg plays Sgt. Nicholas Angel, the best constable in London. He's so good in fact that he's making the rest of the department look bad, so they transfer him to the town of Sanford, where he is partnered up with the head constable's bumbling son Danny. However, things turn interesting for Angel when a string of murders occur, making it his responsibility to get the other townspeople in line and solve the crime. While this may sound like a simple murder mystery, it is in fact a pointed satire of the action film genre, and in its final half hour, Hot Fuzz adopts the very style it paroodies and filling your screen with edge-of-your-seat thrilling action. Don't miss out on this incredible entertainment! This 3-disc edition DVD is the one to get. It's full of great features and documentaries, and not only enhances your knowledge of the film's creation, but also gives you a peek into what it took to reveal it to the public. It's a must-have for anyone who enjoys this film.

      Hot Fuzz

      I can't believe it has been almost 3 years since director Edgar Wright's & screenwriter/actor Simon Pegg's zombie spoof Shaun of the Dead became a surprise hit. Wright returns here with Simon Pegg & Nick Frost (the great duo from Shaun of the Dead) in the action spoof Hot Fuzz. Wright pays homage to such blockbuster action flicks like the Die Hard movies, the Leathal Weapon movies the Bad Boys movies,and a handful of other buddy cop flicks. Hot Fuzz combines both the action & grit of those movies to go along with the awesome British humor that Shaun of the Dead brought to the table. As expected, the jokes here are top-notch, the action scenes are surprisingly well done, the comedic timing is perfect & the chemistry between Pegg & Frost is priceless once again. The supporting cast is put together very well. It includes the likes of Jim Broadbent (Moulin Rouge, Iris & Gangs of New York), Timothy Dalton (Licence to Kill & The Rocketeer), Bill Nighy (Love Actually & Underworld) and some other great British actors & actresses. All in all, Hot Fuzz is a must-see for everyone that loved Shaun of the Dead.

      It's a comedy, but may not be for everyone

      Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are teamed up again in Hot Fuzz. The duo first appeared in "Shaun of the Dead", which is a fantastic zombie-comedy (zom-com). This time, Pegg is transferred from London, where he is just making everyone look bad as a super cop that follows every rule, out to the small town of Sanford, where there hasn't been a murder in years. Not to ruin the plot, but things aren't what they appear and the duo must overcome overwhelming odds to claim victory. Kudos to Timothy Dalton, whose character I really enjoyed. It's well written, the colors are fantastic in HD, and the 5.1 DTS-HD soundtrack really gives all 5 channels a workout, while keeping your subwoofer engaged frequently. And what movie would be complete without a winking nod to "Point Break", the epitome of late 80's action/buddy films. If "Shaun of the Dead" is in your collection, then "Hot Fuzz" should be there as well.

      You will never stop laughing

      lookingGlaSS

      WOW, this movie start to finish hilarious, more hilarious than teladaga knights with will farrel. Simon Pegg out did him self with the performance as Nicolas Angel. The two main charachters Nicolas and Danny brought back the classic humor of Shaun of the dead. The movie is a classic comedic laugh out loud as hard as you can until you cray thrill ride that actually leaves you guessing. They threw in a little twist that prolongs the movie even more for more laughs, but the ending is the most ironic and comedic ending that i have never seen before, youll have to listen to words and follow along to know what im talking about. But not to confuse you it i one terrific movie youll regret never seeing if you decide to overlook it.

      Another Great Edgar Wright/Simon Pegg Offering

      Hot Fuz is one of those movies everyone needs to see at least once. It's a fun film with a surprisingly refreshing and original take on the buddy cop film (much in the same vein as Shaun of the Dead was to the Zombie film). It has everything from the quirky British humor to intense chase sequences and a really compelling mystery to solve along the way. The set comes with a DVD copy as well as an iTunes digital copy and ultraviolet. To top it all off you also get a spiffy steelbook case with some great cover art. Definitely a must buy for any Simon Pegg/Edgar Wright fans.

      Good Movie But Bad Quality DVD

      Posted
      kayzen

      The movie is funny (although admittedly not as funny as "Shaun of the Dead"), BUT, be careful when buying the DVD. I purchased it and at certain points in the film, the picture would freeze, and not continue to play unless I ejected the disk, put it back in my player, and then skipped past the scene. I borrowed a friend's copy and it did the same thing. My player doesn't do this with any other DVDs, so I think the company that made the DVDs might have made an assembly line mistake. Maybe they have fixed it by now and newer copies work properly.
