If you know the Cornetto joke, you've gotta see it!

Funny, weird and awesome. If you liked Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, you'll love it. The movie marathon is the way to see it!

A Great Trilogy With A Weak Ending

By grenathan

It was great to see the many parallels through the 3 films, and there was plenty of action and comedy through out. The new flick, "The World's End" is a bit heavier though, and doesn't seem to have the same meticulous homages as the earlier two films, which would be great as a stand alone film, but when watching them in sequence makes the film stand out as a weak ending to a hilarious, hard hitting, genre bending trilogy.

Being able to watch all 3 movies in a row was great,it allowed us to catch all the little connections, in jokes, and crossover cast. Even if you can't do it in the theatre, I highly recommend a review watching of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz first.

Great classics, new film not on the same level.

The classics of the trilogy, Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz were great, but the new one, The World's End was a little below the par. They tried to cram a little too much moral into their story, had some bothersome speeches, and the main story arc was a little pointless. But, for the money, the trilogy is worth it.

The World's End

Went with friends to see the Cornetto Trilogy Thursday night - everybody loved it!! Great to re-see the first two on the big screen, and then finish it off with TWE, which came in right there with the other two, a little slow at first, but plenty of fun and action for a very strong middle, and a nice finish. Like other films in this genre, multiple viewings are required to get all the nuances and references, but all and all, a very strong entry. Would definitely see it again! Long live The King!!
