  • Editorial Reviews

    Simon Pegg and Nick Frost reteam with director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) in this wildly entertaining thrill ride that critics call “funny as hell” (Richard Roeper, WLS-AM Chicago) and “sheer comic perfection” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone).  Twenty years after their first epic pub crawl attempt, the “five musketeers” reunite in their home town to complete the ultimate challenge – one night, five friends, twelve bars – a boozy quest on which only the strongest will survive. But after a bizarre series of encounters with the out-of-this-world locals, they soon realize that reaching their final pub, The World’s End, may be the least of their troubles.  They’re having the time of their lives, ready to take on the world…but tonight they may have to save it.

    The Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy ends in a very epic way. Shaun of the Dead was a gore fest Zombie film, Hot Fuzz was an over the top, non-stop action romp. The World's End is a sci-fi flick that for me, seemed very reminiscent of Doctor Who. These films may just seem like they are paying homage to genre films on the surface, but all three of these films are anchored in friendship and maturing and have a believable, emotional weight to them. I thought the very epic ending to The World's End was f#@&ing brilliant. I also enjoyed the way the Corentto Ice Cream was worked into this film, the gags that parallel Shaun and Fuzz, the whole thing is done very cleverly.

    5.0 out of 5 stars The Boys are Back in Town August 27, 2013
    Comedy is hard. Delivering consistently outstanding comedies seems near impossible these days, but with The World's End the team of Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg, and Nick Frost have delivered yet another hilarious, genre bending film, this time setting their scopes on classic science-fiction. The film features the action comedy one would expect from the team, but also succeeds in arguably possessing Simon Pegg's best performance to date.

    The World's End begins on a semi-realistic note. Four friends in 1990 attempted to complete the Golden Mile: 12 pubs, 12 pints, one night. All of them have moved on to productive careers except for the former ringleader Gary King (Simon Pegg). After suffering a psychiatric breakdown and determined to regain his youth Gary coerces the group together to take one last shot at the Golden Mile. But coming home isn't always easy as the gang soon discovers that the townspeople are being replaced by robots. Despite all this Gary leads the gang onward determined to reach the final pub: The World's End.

    Simon Pegg as Gary King is childish, pitiful, and manipulative which makes for a great role reversal with Nick Frost (who has played goofy characters in the previous films) now being the serious, take charge figure of the group. The science-fiction plot is handled with great care and is inspired most directly by Invasion of the Body Snatchers and with some elements of apocalyptic fiction. Particularly worth noting when discussing the robots is Pierce Brosnan, who arrives as the boy's former teacher and nails a chilling speech detailing the unknown alien entity's plans. If you enjoy The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy brand of sci-fi absurdity than you'll feel right at home.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Not their best, but a lot of fun November 23, 2013
    Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
    Not as good as Hot Fuzz or Shaun of the Dead, but it definitely has its moments. Some of the jokes are pretty lame, others are clever. If you liked their other movies you'll enjoy this one, but I doubt I'll watch in again, and I re-watch Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead about once a year.

    4.0 out of 5 stars A jolly good time in England August 25, 2013
    This is a theatrical review and there may be spoilers...unless you've seen the trailers.

    This hilarious British comedy features the same folks who brought us "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz" so get ready for a good time. This time out, 5 old friends decide to return to their small home town best known for having the world's first roundabout and The Golden Mile. The later features a series of 12 pubs concluding at The World's End. Twenty years earlier the boys only made it half way before youthful drinking incapacitated them.

    Four of the five have moved on, but Gary King (Simon Pegg) aka "The King" (how original) hasn't. He still wears the same tee-shirt over the same long trench coat that he did we he was 20. He still drives the same car (The Beast), is still irresponsible and well, you get the picture. He decides it would be a good idea to go back home and start over and this time complete their original goal of 1 pint of beer (minimum) at each of the 12 pubs. The other 4, Andy (Nick Frost), Oliver (Martin Freeman), Steven (Paddy Considine), and Peter (Eddie Marsan), reluctantly give in and off they go.

    Along the way, we get plenty of in-the-car-bickering mostly between the alcoholic Gary and the now teetotaler Andy. Directed and co-written (with Pegg) by Edgar Wright, we get just the right amount of obnoxiousness from Gary without wanting to strangle him. In other words, he's funny. Now all of these would seem a bit much after a while as the guys get progressively drunk, but things get a bit weird. At first Gary notices that the bartenders don't recognize him. Others seem to be the same age as they were when he left. Rosamund Pike is introduced midway as the Oliver's sister and former love crush of Steven and Gary. It's pretty much a thankless role.

    This is one of the best movies that Simon Pegg and Nick Frost has been in. It clearly rivals Hot Fuzz and is ahead of Shaun of the Dead in my opinion. Read more
