The film concerns a highly decorated London police officer who is so good at his job that he is shunted off to an assignment in the country because he is so good he makes the rest of the force look bad. Sanford would seem to be an impossibly idyllic place, winner several times of the top village in England award. But it is a town that houses mysteries, which our hero Nick Angel gradually uncovers. Most of the film should be predictable, but it is a credit to Wright and Pegg that it isn't. Even the big ending, the week point in most such movies, is a delight. Despite a lot of action and special effects and explosions it is never taken over by them. It remains fresh and surprising to the very end. Although the plot is surprisingly interesting for a comic romp, this would be a fun film without it. The gags are consistently brilliant throughout and every one is executed marvelously. This is a much slicker film than SHAUN OF THE DEAD was, though that wasn't in any way unpolished.
The cast is a large one and they manage to bring the village of Sandford to life in convincing fashion. Pegg is paired with Nick Frost, his costar in SHAUN OF THE DEAD. The cast is littered with well-known actors such as Jim Broadbent, Timothy Dalton, Edward Woodward, Billie Whitelaw, Bill Nighy, Stephen Merchant, and Martin Freeman as well as a rich and varied cast of lesser-known performers. The great thing about this is that the actors really enhance the film.Read more ›

It is a tight script, but is enhanced by superb camera work and sound track which brings the whole thing to life. Enhanced sounds make every action dramatic - but the subject is so laughably small that is really stands out.
This is Constable Nicholas Angel, top cop at the Met (London) who is moved out because his arrest rate is 400% more than anyone elses and he is making them all look bad. So he ends up in a tiny village in Gloucester (Sandford) which ahs won best village of the year for many years running. But all is not well in the village, luckily the neighbourhood watch are there keeping an eye on things - meaning Nicholas angel has time to follow up on missing swans in the neighbourhood.
Unfortunately there are a series of murders which the police force there are calling 'accidents' - Angel sees different and tries to investigate only to come up against brick walls. His research reveals a stunningly complicated link between all of them which makes sense - but when he confronts them - the reason is much more banal and it sets up a shoot-it-out, chase-em-down final scene. References to Point Break, every western you have ever watched, and even Matrix movies.
It is hard to describe this movie except to say this is as unique as Guy Ritchies Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels is - but in different ways. This is a laugh from start to finish. I will never be able to drinnk decaffinated coffee again without laughing.
Truly brilliant, hilarious, comic-action fun!Read more ›
As for the movie itself, director Edgar Wright re teams with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost along with a host of other actors from his earlier film Shaun of The Dead. Hot Fuzz like Shaun pays homage to a genre of films, in this case the action film as opposed to horror. However there are kills in Hot Fuzz that could rival most horror movies. Homage is payed to the action genre, yet Hot Fuzz still creates a totally unique and creative spin all on it's own. I like Shaun of the dead very much and I found Hot Fuzz to be more creative as there are plenty of plot twists and turns. It is not a spoof at all and Edgar Wright takes his material seriously. I would also mention Hot Fuzz is a great deal better than the action films it pays homage to. Toss in a ton of laughs and this is one entertaining movie.
The picture quality was also dead on, i mention the sound quality so much because it was so amazing.
Hot Fuzz is already ranked on the internet movie database's top 250 films at number 140 currently. It is also one of the highest reviewed films of the year earning a tomatometer of 90% out of 173 critic reviews.
Thanks for reading, share any thoughts.Read more ›

A classic of hilarious quality, wonderful production, and simply good fun.
A must watch!
This movie is so much fun. It is sick, twisted and full of violence. It is hokey and corny. But it is an adventure from start to finish. Read morePublished 19 days ago by Ejel
