From Amazon.co.uk

A major British hit, a lorryload of laughs and some sparkling action? We’ll have some of that. It’s fair to say that Hot Fuzz proves that Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright’s brilliant Shaun Of The Dead was no one-off, serving up a superbly crafted British homage to the Hollywood action movie.

Deliberately set in the midst of a sleepy, quaint English village of Sandford, Pegg’s Nicholas Angel is sent there because, bluntly, he’s too good at his job, and he’s making his city colleagues look bad. The proverbial fish out of water, Angel soon discovers that not everything in Sandford is quite as it seems, and joins forces with Nick Frost’s lumbering Danny Butterman to find out what’s what.

Hot Fuzz then proceeds to have a rollicking good time in both tipping its hat to the genre films that are clearly its loving inspiration, and coming up with a few tricks of its own. It does comedy better than action, with plenty of genuine laugh-out-loud moments, but it’s no slouch either when the tempo needs raising. One of the many strong cards it plays is its terrific cast, which includes former 007 Timothy Dalton, Bill Nighy, Bill Bailey, Paddy Considine, Edward Woodward and Jim Broadbent.

Hot Fuzz, ultimately, just falls short of Shaun Of The Dead, but more than does enough to warrant many, many repeat viewings. It’s terrific fun, and in the true hit action movie style, all-but-demands some form of sequel. That said, with Pegg and Wright now with two excellent, and suitably different, genres ticked off, it’ll be interesting to see what they do next. A period drama, perhaps...? --Simon Brew

5.0 out of 5 stars You'll love it if you pay attention 20 Jan 2008
By Kamran Rahman VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
This is an intelligent British spoof cop film. It is rather different from American spoof movies, the list of which is almost endless and which rely on rather cheap gags, all the way back to Airplane and Naked Gun. This film has a proper plot line which is at the same time quite clever and in the end too ridiculous for words. Having a proper plot line means that (unlike American films) it can't be "laugh-a-minute" all the way through but instead has to lay the seeds of its jokes subtly during the first half before starting to bring them out in spectacular bloom during the second half. This means that the first half is funny (there is a good scattering of cheap gags all the way through), but feels a little slow, whereas the second half (definitely the last half hour) will leave you in stitches - but of course only if you have paid careful attention to the "set ups" in the first half.

This film pushes the boundaries of spoof movies and brings them home to Britain in a way that Hollywood could never do and certainly with jokes that many people outside Britain just would not get. Watch out in particular for the hint of "forbidden love" between the two cops and a subtle joke on Timothy Dalton's chin right at the end...

4.0 out of 5 stars It's No Shaun, but this is pure fun 26 Aug 2007
Format:DVD
Hot Fuzz is an excellent film. I have yet to be dissapointed with this team's work. Hot Fuzz continues the trend of Shaun of the Dead where it pays homage to a genre while creating and developing its own characters and story.

In Hot Fuzz, Simon Pegg is a good London cop - so good he is promoted to seargant in a small town where he is supposedly useless because nothing ever happens. His partner is the inept Danny, played by Nick Frost - who is just as funny and a bit more useful than he was in Shaun of the Dead (well, he doesn't screw up as much). Cameos read like a who's who of british comedy with Steve Coogan, Martin Freeman, and Bill Bailey making appearances.

A lot of reviewers have stated that this just isn't funny. It's funny, but Pegg and Wright, in penning the script have gone for some big in jokes, carefully inserted that to the regular movie goer, may go over their head. There's also a type of humour here that not every film goer will get. Part of Simon Pegg's success as a comedian is his dry, deadpan delivery. In many ways he reminds me of a young Bill Murray.

This film doesn't seem as successful because the action genre is just not as much in our current mindset as the horror genre. So one liners and fun dialogue exchangers are replaced by a lot of visual gags. Unfortunately, this means the characters aren't quite as developed as they are in Shaun of the Dead. This isn't a big deal - it's an action movie after all - but it was one of the charms of both Spaced and Shaun.

The finale of the film (possible spoiler) however, features a pitch perfect action scene. Here, the filmakers show their range by creating a brilliant action sequence that also has many of their trademark hilarious moments. It's not Shaun funny, but it still shows these guys have a lot more up there sleeves. So what's next - sci fi? western?

4.0 out of 5 stars Difficult to spoof blood and gore but... 12 May 2008
Format:DVD
I think I must be the only person in the universe who has not seen Shaun of the Dead. This was my first Pegg experience and I dare not watch anything prior for fear of "ruining him" for me...For those who did not like this film because it was too "Arnie" with all of the firepower etc...all I can say is that was the point. This is a spoof! I am not sure how I managed to rent this movie because I am not usually a fan of the "anihilation movie" (I think the goose probably had a lot to do with it...) but I am very glad I did! I do agree that there was more gore than I had expected (sleepy village amid rolling hills...you have to reckon the goose is going to be the most dangerous thing our hero faces, no?) and that there probably should be some sort of warning. If, however, there will be no kids around and you feel that you have been properly warned about the gore, do NOT pass up this "hot" and "fuzzy" experience!

4.0 out of 5 stars Schlocky Horror Picture Show! 20 Aug 2007
Format:DVD
Alas, if only England was like Working Title's spin on it, we could play tennis with Kirsten Dunst while she winks suggestively, we could drunkenly stroll to The Lucky Boat to meet andie McDowell, we could leisurely stroll through Notting Hill to the strains of Bill Withers... It's a sepia tinted world to be sure.
We now come to their latest project Hot Fuzz, the rustic English opener is spliced with a Lethal Weapon like second half. The amiable first half sees Sgt Nicholas Angel(an excellent Simon Webb) golden boy Police "Officer" a pollitically correct dot the i s and cross the ts anal retentive who gets despatched to the country by his superiors (Martin Freeman, Steve Coogan and Bill Nighy all in excellent form) because he is making his colleagues look inept in comparison. He winds up in sleepy Sandford, Gloucestershire where he is not expected to make any waves. The town is idyllic with an exceptionally low crime rate but a very high accident rate! Something isn't quite right from Timothy Dalton's smarmy Supermarket owner to Edward Woodward's over zealous community liason. People are unexpectedly slaughtered by a cloak wearing psychopath...but is it why we think?
Sgt Angel is twinned up with Danny (Nick Frost) an oafish overweight idiot and son of the local Police chief Jim Broadbent.
The film is drenched with so many references that it becomes almost original. The village is reminiscent of the Daily Mail's Middle England that it bemoans is disappearing. This is crossed with Stepford Wives overtones. The second half is gun toting brilliance and reeks of Dirty Harry and Martin Riggs. On the way are hilarious interludes such as the village hall production of Romeo + Juliet.
