Five lifelong friends reunite to complete a historic pub crawl from their youth, and find that reaching the fabled World's End tavern will be no simple undertaking while they also fight for the future of all mankind. Twenty years ago, Gary King (Simon Pegg) and his pals embarked on the ultimate drinking marathon. But the beer got the best of them, and they failed to drink their final pint at the World's End pub. Now, as die-hard rebel Gary approaches middle age, he summons his old friends back to their hometown for another round. With each pint down, Gary and the gang take another step toward reconciling with the past. Yet just when it starts to look like their goal is in sight, the pals realize that a much larger struggle is currently taking place, and that the future seems particularly grim -- not only for them, but for the entire human race. Nick Frost, Paddy Considine, Martin Freeman, Eddie Marsan, and Rosamund Pike co-star in the final chapter of Edgar Wright's "Three Flavors Cornetto Trilogy," which began with 2004's Shaun of the Dead and continued in 2007's Hot Fuzz.~Jason Buchanan

As usual, Edward Wright, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, and the others deliver and do not disappoint. Totally my kind of film, to say the least. I do admit to being a huge fan of this team, but this final chapter of "The Cornetto Trilogy" is funny, exciting, and thought provoking. It's a must see. Masterful brilliance at it's best!
This often overlooked third film in Edgar Wright’s Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy is filled with solid action and plenty of humor to boot. This time, series stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost face off evil aliens in this satire of the Body Snatcher films. Yes, “Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz” are better films, but this movie is still pretty amazing in its own right. Check it out if you haven’t yet and revisit it if you haven’t seen it in awhile. I don’t think that you’ll be disappointed.

Owned for 7 months when reviewed.
I saw this in theaters, bought this Blu-ray years later to get a free pass to another movie... couldn't remember exactly what this was about, so I watched the trailer for "World's End"
Yeah, it's a good movie, definitely going to watch it again...
Edgar Wright is a great director. This might be his worst film, but that says more about the quality of the director than how good this film is. Wright is a genius visual story teller. It's not as good as Scott Pilgrim, Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, or his real gem Baby Driver, but if you love those film this one is a good watch.
I love Nick Frost and Simon Pegg as actors! Shaun of the Dead is still one of my favorite comedies. And this one is hilarious too. I've been trying to find it at Best Buy for the longest time, and finally did and am thrilled to add it to my collection
This is part of the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy and is a must have for fans of Edgar Wright. It’s very entertaining and funny. The film is also very well edited and has an excellent pace. I really enjoyed this film.
