Summary: If you're looking for a good reason to keep drinking. This movie is the inspiration you are looking for (not that I condone excessive drinking no matter how much fun it is). Pegg and co decide it would be fun to relive a failed pub-crawl in an attempt to complete it many years later. Whimsically, they drink more that they can funnel and a sinister plot unfolds before their blood-shot, double glazed eyes. A stout comedy, frothing with action and hilarity.
Summary: Loved loved loved The World's End, riotously juvenile humour, littered with references to previous work and homage to other movies / genres, great one liners, fantastic cast of both the usual suspects and other familiar faces. I now want to see it again as there is far too much crammed in to be fully appreciated in one sitting. As good as Shaun of the Dead and/or Hot Fuzz? I'll tell you in a year or so when I have had to chance to view the required number of times.
Summary: If you don't like Simon Pegg then save your money as he is in your face for the whole film.If you do like Pegg then you won't be disappointed.A good premise slightly spoilt by the usual over the top finish.Pegg's supporting cast are worth the watch.
Great final edition to the blood and icecream trilogy
19 December 2013
Summary: I can't say the twist was unexpected, but hey this film is good for a laugh. Simon Pegg's character is pretty well-developed, everyone elses not so much. If you're a fan of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Paul or ridiculous, excessive action and copious amounts of drinking this is probably a good film for you to see.
Summary: The third and final installment in Edgar Wright's f**king brilliant Blood and Ice Cream trilogy. The World's End is Nostalgic, heartfelt and hilarious. A comedy that hits all the right notes. If there's one thing Simon Pegg and Nick Frost don't lack, it's chemistry. Simon Pegg is Gary King, a man tired of his dull life that wants to relive his teenage years, getting smashed, hooking up with girls, and starting bar fights.
Summary: I sat in the cinema laughing; but didn't leave the cinema laughing. I expected something more from it as its final trilogy -don't let me confuse you, it was extremely funny & I liked it- but I just felt a bit disappointed at the end. I just think the ending could have been much better. Film is hilarious, lots of laughs; props to Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, & Martin Freeman - they were the funniest out of the bunch.
Summary: I was lucky enough to go to the International Premiere of this in Wellington. Despite not being a huge fan of comedy films, this was fantastic! I don't know if part of it was having the director, main cast etc in the theater but the laughter was great. I thought it delivered exactly what it promised and had an awesome time!
Summary: The World's End It's beer o'clock! Great funny Pegg & Frost movie, delivers what it crap-tasically promises. A number of great UK actors are involved an good to see them in cameo roles. Like a crazy English smash-up of 'Dusk Till Dawn' & 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers' with 'Shawn of the Dead' comedy! If you like their previous films, then this will totally rock your socks, it's a beast. What is a robot?
