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.

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.

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.

I am a huge fan of the Cornetto trilogy (my favorite being the exquisite "Hot Fuzz,") but "The World's End," while a very imaginative and entertaining movie in its own right left me a bit less enthused than the two previous installments. This film centers on five old friends reuniting for an epic pub crawl featuring encounters with everything from high school bullies and old flames to a full scale alien invasion. Simon Pegg as the former leader of the gang who has been destroyed by life has a darker and much more emotional role here, and he turns out a great performance; for my money though Nick Frost takes top honors as the straight guy (a great role reversal from "Hot Fuzz" which pleased me immensely.) While Simon is perfectly suited to play a jerk, the supporting cast (many of whom are veterans of "Hot Fuzz" or "Shaun of the Dead") particularly Martin Freeman and Paddy Considine are equally up to their respective roles.

I liked the thematic similarities between The Network and the NWA (from "Hot Fuzz") and the inherent alien evilness of The Network is perfectly encapsulated in Bill Nighy's detached and genuinely creepy dialogue. Pierce Brosnan as a former teacher and alien acolyte is a piece of casting genius, and the scenes in the bar between the protagonists and Brosnan are high points. The conclusion (don't miss the Cornetto reveal...it passes really quickly in this one!) is an interesting post-apocalyptic take on the future that is unpredictable and arresting and allows Frost to really shine.

The film is beautifully made with extraordinary editing of particular note.
