After reading some of these reviews I couldn’t wait to see this movie. But after sitting thru the first 30 min without so much as a chuckle, I started to question if this was actually a comedy. It wasn’t until the credits that I realized that virtually every funny moment in the movie was shown in the trailers and commercials. It’s not that I don’t get British humor no matter how dry it is, it’s just that this movie isn’t funny. I’m now a firm believer that no matter how hard they try, Britain just isn’t in the same league as Hollywood films. This film was from the creators of Shaun of the Dead….(A movie which wasn’t very funny either). Which is appropriate since it’s basically the same movie without the zombies. The language and graphic gore is right on pair and pointless. To the films credit, it’s decent, but If you really want to see this movie, wait for the rental.

the film started quite slowly and i thought that this was going to be another over-rated film, i was expecting a lot, i loved shaun of the dead and was looking forward to the same insane action. if you can make it past the first half an hour you are in for a rare treat. this film has everything, even an old lady being drop kicked by the hero(and for good reason)this film does not dissapoint and had me in stitches on quite a few occasions. the scene in the pub were the two stars have their first real conversation is truly memorable. a must see film if you loved shaun of the dead

I love this movie.I think it was a fun idea to develop a action in a london town. The movie was a complete roller coaster ride. The chemistry between Simon Pegg & Nick Frost is incredible.The only negative is that running was a little long. But I think that the way they embraced the action movie genre not mocking the genre. You must go to see this movie!!!

I suggest this movie to all action fans. Not suggested for children under 13 or those who do not like graphic violence & scenes. But it is a funny look at how rediculous action films are & yet how entertaining they can be. Definately see it!
