Product Description

Pair of new classic Brit comedy features from the hit comedy team Nick Frost and Simon Pegg. In 'Hot Fuzz' (2007) when a hotshot young London sergeant, Nicholas Angel's (Pegg) arrest record puts the whole metropolitan force to shame, his superiors shunt him to a rural posting hoping they've heard the last of him. The sleepy hamlet he's posted to however, behind all the lace-curtain politeness, is a hotbed of grisly murder and vigilante-ism. His diligence and character sits ill with the locals - all except the Sergeant's layabout son Danny Butterman (Frost) who's a huge fan of the cop buddy movie genre. The pair bond and end up taking on the town in a guns-blazing, granny-kicking, rocket-launching gore-fest in the interests of ridding the town of a sinister cult of pensioners who're dedicated to keeping order at any cost. 'Shaun Of The Dead' (2004) was the much-lauded comedy, described by its makers as 'a romantic comedy - with zombies'. It fuses the style (and copious bloodshed) of classic zombie films with observational suburban comedy. Shaun (Pegg) is a useless but likeable thirty-something who works in an electronics shop in Crouch End. He doesn't get much respect from his fellow staff, even though he's standing in as temporary boss; his girlfriend Liz (Kate Ashfield) has had enough of his lack of direction and penchant for downing pints in the local pub; and he doesn't get on with his stepdad (Bill Nighy). Things get worse when the living dead make their appearance, threatening to spread their zombie curse across the nation. Will Shaun be able to rise from his sofa to save the lives of the two women he loves - Liz and his dear old mum?

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. --Simon Brew

On to the other half of this cracking double pack - it's no disparagement to describe Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright’s zombie-rom-com Shaun of the Dead as playing like an extended episode of Spaced. Not only does the movie have the rather modest scope of a TV production, it also boasts the snappy editing, smart camera moves, and deliciously post-modern dialogue familiar from the sitcom, as well as using many of the same cast: Pegg’s Shaun and Nick Frost’s Ed are doppelgangers of their Spaced characters, while Jessica Stevenson and Peter Serafinowicz appear in smaller roles. Unlike the TV series, it’s less important for the audience to be in on the movie in-jokes, though it won’t hurt if you know George Romero’s famous Dawn of the Dead trilogy, which is liberally plundered for zombie behaviour and mythology.

Shaun is a loser, stuck in a dead-end job and held back by his slacker pal Ed. Girlfriend Liz (Kate Ashfield) is exasperated by his lack of ambition and unceremoniously dumps him. As a result, Shaun misses out on what is apparently the end of the world. In a series of beautifully choreographed and edited scenes, including hilarious tracking shots to and from the local shop, he spectacularly fails to notice the death toll and subsequent zombie plague. Only when one appears in their back garden do Shaun and Ed take notice, hurling sundry kitchen appliances at the undead before breaking out the cricket bat. The catastrophe proves to be the catalyst for Shaun to take charge of his life, sort out his relations with his dotty mum (Penelope Wilton) and distant stepdad (Bill Nighy), and fight to win back his ex-girlfriend. Lucy Davis from The Office and Dylan Moran of Black Books fame head the excellent supporting cast. --Mark Walker

Shaun of the dead is proberly one of the greatest films ever!! very funny and a great comedy duo between simon pegg and nick frost. Hot fuzz even though not quite as good as shaun of the dead in my opinion because of the two main characters it is also a great film waiting for the third film of the trilogy cnt wait.

Nick Frost and Simon Pegg make a great team and these two films together are probably the best examples. Geeky, deadpan humour, rife with classic movie references that never get old.

Before buying this, I noticed that in shops the two films alone would total up to about £10. However, this boxset is certainly worth buying instead of the separate buys! Two amazing action comedies starring the impressive British duo - Simon Pegg and Nick Frost - and directed by the epic Edgar Wright which coincide with the Cornetto Trilogy (with 2013 World's End being the finale of this series). Great delivery too! A few rough edges on the box but that was expected as it was a used set after all.

Would highly recommend to any action enthusiasts searching for new films or for fans of The World's End who want to experience new material from Wright, Pegg and Frost

This is a great value box set that contains two of my favourite movies of all time. Both are created by and star the same talented people !

Whose visual and comedic styles are unique, innovative, fresh and appealing !

Here are my separate reviews for both movies:

Hot Fuzz Review:

This movie had past my expectations!
It's even more funny and action packed than Shaun of the Dead !

Ever since seeing Shaun of the Dead and seeing spaced , I have been a huge Pegg/Frost/Wright fan !
I love their wonderful blend of straight faced yet absurd comedy and stylish small budget yet big results type action.
Their scripts also seem brilliantly crafted.

The delivery of dialogue,timing choreography and pacing of plot are all very well executed. It's a joy to watch this movie flow from scene to scene.
And of course it is all very funny, while trying to keep a macho stiff upper lipped atmosphere. ( Not in an entirely serious way though )

These boys seem to continue to give us great innovation through their style of British action comedy and continue to impress.

I get oh so very excited when I see something new from them ..... and they don't do so many projects together, but when they do turn out something it usually is top notch stuff.

This movie is about an overachieving police officer of London who has been recently promoted to sergeant.
Unfortunately there are no sergeant positions in London ( Or so his jealous superiors tell him ), so he is unwillingly transfered to the countryside village of Sanford.

This gives our hero with not a lot to do considering the low crime rate of the countryside or so it seems.

When I saw this as a 2 for one pack I thought it would be the usual cheapo slipcase with the 2 discs crammed in the one pack.
Imagine my pleasant surprise when it arrived all the way down here in Western Australia as the 2 original DVDs in an outer slip case.
These movies are both dead set classics, darkly comical and vivdly gory.
Nick Frost's stupidity acts as a wonderful counter to Simon Pegs condescending attitude in "Hot Fuzz" and as the Rough and ready mate in "Shaun of the Dead".
I'm sure you all know both of these movies by now, all I wanted to say was that they are a damn good buy.

Shaun of the Dead is one of the best Zombie movies I've seen, if possibly even the best.
It's got a good amount of comedy, the occasional seriousness and well, romance.
It's the first movie I saw with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost and it really left me wanting to see more.

Hot Fuzz, I don't really know what to think of it, it's a great movie but I'm not entirely sure what to think of it.
For a cop movie it's really good, not like the usual ones where they only go around and shoot to kill.
I like how Nick's character seems to have his head a bit too much in the blue sometimes.

These are 2 off the best films, not just comedy films, but 2 of the best of any kind to come out of britain for years. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have been working together for ages, so they bounce off each other brilliantly and these 2 films prove they still have it. Both of these films will keep you amushed and intrested for ages. This is a must have for any person who likes to laugh and an even bigger must for fans of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Just buy this you won't be dissapointed.

First off, if you're planning on buying this, well, you're a smart person...

This box set turned out to be cheaper than buying them both spereratly, which i had origonally intended to do. Pegg and Frost go fantastically together, extremely funny in all of there films...Both films have some violent scenes but they are by no means overly + its comic violence and is very amusing...

I'd say go for it, it was a great buy and well worth the money.
