3.0 out of 5 stars hardly a masterpiece, 17 April 2007
This review is from: Hot Fuzz (2 Disc Special Edition) [2007] [DVD] (DVD)
lets all calm down,shall we?giving this film 5 stars may seem like a logical thing to do when the excitement of watching it remains,but steady as she goes readers,this isnt a masterpiece,this isnt better than spaced or up there with spaced and likewise it isnt fit to dance nicely alongside shaun of the dead either,yes we all like simon pegg,we all like the film references that he blinds us with but the actual story and its execution with hot fuzz isnt as amazing as my fellow reviewers would have you believe.

The film follows a london based cop who is making the rest of the cops look bad when compared to his arrest rates,so he is sent to a supposedly sleepy rural village where the most that he could hope for in terms of action would be helping a cat down from a tree,or not perhaps.

As it turns out there is a underlying evil in the village and simon pegg along with his sidekick played by old favourite nick frost must unravel,so we watch random deaths to people ,some pretty violent,some stupid ,all fine with me ,but the overall story loses focus after a hour and descends into farce really as old ladies whip out sawn off shotguns and start shooting without being knocked back with the power of the gun,kinda cheapens the effect of the gun i would say and the film towards the end is also very A-Team in that no one dies ,they just get shot at and fly through the air and land on hay for example so thats a bit weak in my opinion,the film is also a bit too heavy laden with the f word which is used to get 12 year ols chuckling,a better script would have whipped the over use of bad language off the top.

However ,after all that critical analysis,this is still a mindless 90 odd minutes that has some good cameos and some good film references that should pass the time solid enough but lets leave the talk of worlds greatest film at the door please.
