Overall, The Worlds End has some genuine comedy moments & well worked in ideas, but apart from the fresh, neat introduction of what they are up against, it just felt like i'd seen this movie before. And that's because it's essentially a combination of Shaun of the Dead & Hot Fuzz with a new surprise twist. The film was carried with two key performances, Simon Pegg's immature, sarcastic & never admits he's wrong Gary King, whose the energetic life of the party. Contrasted perfectly with Nick Frost's more mature & solemn outlook on life, Andy Knightley. Truth be told the other characters were a bit forgettable and just tagging along for the ride.
The build up with these old mates forced to reunite was enjoyable itself, right up to the surprise reveal, that was so out of place & bizarre, it was a very enjoyable scene turning things on it's head. However the aftermath didn't quite capitalize on it, as the gags dried up, and it turned into a series of chases resulting in action fight sequences as the film went into a brawl. But it had good direction with neat special effects & cinematography/choreography.Read more ›
Decided it should be 3 stars, 4 stars may be misleading considering how little the 2nd half of the film held my attention.
Central to the film is the character of King, who unlike previous Characters Shaun and Nicholas Angel is not that likeable. He has little ambition, he's self-centred, no one can argue with him and he has the same clapped out car; a boy trapped in a man's body. There is potential for conflict with his more successful friends who have families and jobs and this is explored until their night out becomes more of a challenge.
Similar to the sort of encounters in Shaun of the Dead, their foes are now face-grabbing robots whose limbs make a satisfying pop as they snap off and their heads sometimes shatter like porcelain, spraying a thick blue blood all over the place. From this point on the exploration of character is thrown out of the window and it's more about pub brawls, spilt pints and Frost's character proving he's actually good at fighting.
Unfortunately for a comedy, it isn't that funny. I laughed occasionally and smiled at some of the other jokes but it felt like it worked better as a slightly odd drama with actors you liked. In fact there were one or two quite poignant moments where Pegg's character elicited sympathy, where his behaviour is explained. These didn't help the comedy, but added a bit of depth to the story.Read more ›
There is too much violence and swearing, and some of the humour is distasteful. There is a running joke about having teenage sex in a disabled toilet. It romanticises binge drinking, drug taking and casual sex.
But maybe the problem is that I am basically the same generation as these characters, and this comedy just hits me too close too home, reminding me of things I don't want to be reminded about.
There are some sharp gags and observations, though, and the film is redeemed by an epilogue which reveals an unexpected, darkly humorous twist (it was unexpected to me anyway). The DVD also has a 50 minute Making Of documentary where the cast and crew make it perfectly clear that they are aware of the swearing and the references to mental health. It also reveals that much of what I thought was CGI was actually done for real. So I find it difficult to dislike, all things considered.
I wonder if this film might eventually be seen as the most accomplished of the series due to its darker and more realistic depiction of changed friendships and mental illness. The Empire Strikes Back of the Three Cornettos Trilogy.Read more ›
