Summary: I had high hopes. but this comedy with simon peg and co was really stupid and rather pathetic . simon peg was great and the other characters were ok. but the aliens were really stupid .. the bar scene near the end was just awful. sean of the dead was great and hot fuzz was very good this is like a poor diluted version of the two. This was one of those movies where watching it once was enough and would never hope to see it again as it was dire.
Excerpt: What started with Shaun of the Dead and continued with Hot Fuzz comes to a pretty much perfect conclusion in The World's End. The so-called "Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy" (or Cornetto Trilogy if you will) is simply one of the greatest achievements in British comedy and Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost should be quite proud of the result.
Excerpt: "And we're back, just like the five musketeers!" " Three musketeers, isn't it?" Yes, it is the three musketeers - Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, and director Edgar Wright. The hilarious British trio is back, delivering their epic finale to the fabulous "Blood and Ice Cream" (or "Cornetto," or "Rotten Tomatoes 91%) trilogy. I'm a huge admirer of Edgar Wright and his films.
Excerpt: Those familiar with 'Shaun of the Dead' and 'Hot Fuzz' will find 'The World's End' to be more of the same. That is the best possible compliment I can give to this film. The trio of Pegg, Frost, and Wright have once again delivered a hilarious and highly enjoyable comedy. The basic plot involving old pals reuniting for a pub traveling adventure is only the tip of the fun to be had here.
Excerpt: Okay, now these guys really have explored every idea possible. A pub crawl. When was the last time we had a good movie about a pub crawl? This was my most anticipated movie of 2013, right after Man of Steel, but fortunately The World's End was actually good. In fact, it was great. Who knew these simple, fun comedies would turn into one of the best trilogies today? My God. I am so surprised. This movie has a typical Pegg-Frost-Wright quality.
Excerpt: A middle aged loser determined to recreate his glory days talks his childhood friends into finishing a pub crawl they started in their youth, only to find the town has been taken over by alien replicants. As you can probably tell from the synopsis, the third part of the big screen Spaced trilogy is Shaun Of The Body Snatchers.
