This is turning into the summer of sleeper comedies. The World's End is cheesy and fun!
It's no Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, but The World's End is highly entertaining. Even though the story isn't anything to write home about, the execution is perfect. The scripting and comedic timing really make up for its simple plot.
At any given point in time, you can expect what will happen next, and if you don't, whatever does happen won't surprise you. What surprised me was how much I didn't care. I just kept laughing and smiling throughout the whole movie.
Simon Pegg really made this movie come together. His acting is perfect. The World's End is a great movie to enjoy with your friends. It might remind you of today or a time gone by. I wasn't sure I was going to watch it, but I'm glad I did.
There's nothing during or after the credits
If you like my reviews, add me as a fan. I'll add you back!

wow what a bit of a bummer that this movie just did not get moving like the other two. This one relied to heavily on crude comments and gestures that just lost all the impact and was actually boring.

I shoulda waited till it came out on dvd.
Simon acted well in this simple comedy,
and I liked that he had a lot of his previous
actors in this, that was fun.
But in the "end", I wished that I had spent
my time watching another movie. Sad to say.

I love Shaun of the Dead... so I certainly expected a lot more out of this movie. Starts off fuuny and loses it at the end. Not horrible, I would wait for the RedBox $.99 rental

Really enjoyed World's End. Makes fun of, well, world's end plots (also embraces) and also in my opinion satirizes "man-child" movies, all while going a bit deeper than prior Cornetto films. Also: Always enjoy him but this is easily Simon Pegg's best performance. Reactions spot on; also surprisingly moving, all with terrible hair. The whole cast is fun (always like Martin Freeman and the underrated Eddie Marsan and Rosamund Pike kicks some serious butt as well.) A few seriously crazy twists and turns and a controversial ending (that I liked but will certainly cause debate) are just part of the fun here.
