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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    A Great Comedy

    Posted
    AGreatMovieCritic

    A great comedy and as I have said before: Very funny, exciting, dramatic, spell binding, edge of your seat thriller, no dead zombies, family movie, rated R, funny. At the end of the movie you may leave thinking wow; Britain is a pretty creepy place. Or; wow I'm moving to Britain. Though your response to this movie with those choices is sort of like a life question as well as a personal opinion

    Hot and extra Fuzzy

    Posted
    DocDragon

    Great extras make rewatching and re-rewatching the film very enjoyable! The movie is well crafted with great direction. Kudos to the Brits for showing the US how to really do a "buddy cop" flick! The film is well paced with a reasonable amount of action, a great twist, excellent comic timing, and plenty of intra- and extra-genre references for the movie buff.

    OK so this is probably the funniest movie ever - second only to Shaun of the Dead from the same guys (Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg, & Nick Frost). Watch Shaun of the Dead first so that you catch all of this movie's references to it. Try to figure out who plays Simon Skinner during the movie - I absolutely loved his character.
