Hot Fuzz though is a genuine classic and gets better with age. Something I was surprised at because I can't stand Simon " my best friend is Tom Cruise" Pegg now. He is up his own bottom, thinking he is funny and spoiling the Mission Impossible films. Kill him off please Tom.
All the characters in Hot Fuzz are really funny, especially Timothy Dalton dodgy supermarket owner. There is plenty of swearing, blood and guts and action film nods to make you laugh.
Line of Duty recently demonstrated what is lost in our remorselessly on-demand world. The TV series gripped the nation, kept us on tenterhooks, and brought everyone together for its final episode. It's allegedly disappointing finale? I don't know. Didn't see it. Haven't got a telly.
But there are some things that one wants to stick on of an evening, to watch I mean, and others that, well, you kind of need to run across them in the schedules and think ah, why not? They're better experienced opportunistically. The Pegg/Frost movies come into this category.
Find that Shaun of the Dead is on and I'll stick with it, but actually choose to stick the DVD on, no sir. Same is true of the UFO comedy, Paul. Hot Fuzz is arguably the best thing that Pegg/Frost have done since the best days, the strange days of Spaced. I'd say it's in a tradition of British comedies that goes back to the Ealing comedies. And I thought I loved it enough to invest in the DVD. But I'm a tad disappointed. Why?
In it's uncut form Hot Fuzz reminds us of its director's trademark tendency towards excess. The added c-word, for example, when Angel is telling Danny about his uncle: not necessary. If you watch something like Wright's movie Scott Pilgrim, there's admiration for its endless inventiveness but that's undermined by the overwrought character, the information overload. The exhausting relentlessness, the needy need to fill every moment with as much signification and incident as possible. Don't get me wrong, it's not a constant attack upon the spectator like Chris Nolan flicks, but a bit much all the same. And in it's fullest form, Hot Fuzz has the same problem. One just feels it more in this not-for-TV version.
The presence of the extras DVD2 compounds it. Lot of tosh, really. Who would it appeal to? Teenagers, I s'pose. The kind who don't watch DVDs. I'll keep the movie disc but the extras extra one is in the bin.
Anyway, if you haven't seen Hot Fuzz yet, can't wait for the next run on telly, or don't own a telly, but do own a DVD player...it's mostly hilarious and wonderful. Crammed full of easter eggs. Just don't overdose on 'em, or the cornettos, or else you'll get sick.
So I'm going to assume you've seen at least one Pegg and Frost film, if by some miracle you haven't go watch sean of the dead then come back to me. But anyway, yeah, although the tone might be the same the quality isn't...it's better.
I'm not a massive fan of this series of films, in my opinion this and sean of the dead are by far the best in this series of films. And I think that's all I really need to say. I'm not sure if I prefer this or sean of the dead, but at the absolute bare minimum it rivals sean of the dead in quality.
It's hilarious, Frost plays basicly the same character from sean of the dead, fat, stupid and hilarious, whereas Pegg is thoroughly professional, married to his job but his character is just as amazing. The soundtrack, just like sean of the dead's is just amazing and feels perfect for this film.
Do I really need to continue? It's sean of the dead...but about the police instead, and it's amazing. Though like I said, for me sadly the later films, the worlds end, the one where they meet an alien just pale in comparison.
Another brilliant revisitation of the genre, that passes through parody intended as a way to refresh the genre and not just to make fun of it (or at least to make fun of it in a very serious and committed way, british way I'd say), with of course lots of laughs but also a careful attention to details and to style and language. What's great about these films is in fact that they are so well done, with some innovative editing and a breathtaking rhythm that come from a brilliant script, editing, performances and direction.
It is not just a matter of fast cut and adrenaline scenes, but of perfect comical timing and a tasteful unfolding of the story and revelation of characters' personalities, always swinging between caricatures and real people, with their tics, goofy behavior, secrets and funny attitude.
Hot fuzz is released on an excellent blu ray which truly expose its video quality (that is strange to say about a comedy).
As one or two reviewers mention, it is a bit of a 'slow' starter. We are given a fairly lengthy (but necessary) preview into Simon Pegg's 'policing' career and then follow his reluctant transfer into a 'seemingly' dead-end job within a quiet village.
But the action soon heats up when the bodies start mounting, and I do prefer those mysteries that have the audience guessing whodunnit as well. The typical American cop-style action, the over-the-top filming techniques so common in Hollywood action movies, the charming country accents and quaint English village backdrop all make for an hilarious combination.
