The World's End was a great movie. If your a fan of 'Shaun of the Dead' and 'Hot Fuzz', you'll love this one. The crowd was cheering after the first fight sequence that changes the theme of the movie, and there were some great one-liners that had audience members missing the next line of dialogue. The six trailers(and stupid coca-cola commercials) that were before the movie were totally annoying. I was exhausted before the movie even started. Please work on this AMC. But moviewise, the flick was great, and it's nice that hard R rated movies are still being made.

To enjoy this film you have to be able to understand a variety of UK accents. It's sort of like Monty Python in that respect. IF you can't understand the dialog, you miss half the jokes. Having said that, I would give this adult rated film a solid B-.for a UK film with few identifiable stars to a US audience. It does however have a very unique story line and every Big Hollywood studio would have passed on it. If have a couple of hours to spend when you can see it at matinee prices, it's world a look. Definitely not a date movie.

Nick Frost/Simon Pegg = must go. We took our daughter along and she loved it as well. One reviewer said this was no "Scott Pilgrim vs the World" which was good in my book (I thought that movie was stupid). This had site gags and one-liners through-out, a few fence jumpings. colored with what is the nature of human relationships and the complexity, and disappointments, and rewards of friendships.
Well done lads.

If you liked Hot Fuzz, you will enjoy this movie. The humour is British, but the audience was laughing loudly during the show that I saw. It is a mashup of buddy, drinking, and Stepford Wives movies, but in general works well.

As a huge fan of Simon Pegg and Nick frost, I loved the idea of this last film from the pair. I loved Shawn of the Dead and Paul, and sort of enjoyed Hot Fuzz. This was hyped to the best of the lot and it is easily the worst.
Not really funny, but slightly amusing at the start, the film's purpose seems lost as the lads go on a pub crawl. Maybe if the stars of the film were having a good time together, we could embrace them more and actually root for them once the badness starts. But instead they come across as sticks in the mud and when the badness comes you really don't care if they get killed or not.
The fight scenes are endless and strain credibility. These drunken wimps can fight gangs of people?
Sad to see it end like this.
