Edgar Wright's Cornetto Trilogy is the best comedic trilogy I've ever seen! It was my first time seeing Shaun of the Dead, and I loved it! I was not disappointed. Hot Fuzz is always amazing. The World's End, being the third and final installment of the trilogy, had a lot of expectations. Let me tell you, it surpassed all of them. It was the funniest and bluest movie of the three. It had all the gags from the other two, and took itself just as serious as the others. I will be seeing The World's End multiple times in theaters and buying it when it's released on Blu-Ray. 5 stars and 2 thumbs up!

Well if your seeing the worlds end then most likely you've seen Shaun and hot fuzz so i wont go into those and only focus on the worlds end. This was one of the movies i was looking forward to most this summer and i loved it. The acting, writing, and direction was fantastic as always by these guys. Also it was nice to see nick frost playing a different character for once instead of the bumbling idiot. As for the age group for this movie i'd say its good for teens of any age and up. The violence is mainly on robots and does not look too graphic. There is a fair share of language, but no nudity, but with some sexually suggestive moments. This movie is a must see if you loved their other projects.

While this event has passed, these movies are timeless. I have watched "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz" countless times, and I'm happy to say that "The World's End" is a fitting conclusion to the trilogy. The movie moves at a slow pace in the beginning, establishing Gary King and the group, but picks up steam incredibly quickly.
The foreshadowing of upcoming events is excellently peppered throughout the film (I won't give away or when, but pay attention through the film), and the ending definitely threw me for a loop.
I can't recommend this movie enough. Do yourself a favor and cap off the summer season of films with this. You'll be glad you did.

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.

If you like the first two, this is a "must see" obviously. It's a little more "glitzy" than the other 2, but fun and comically violent, as usual for these guys.
