4.0 out of 5 stars What the **** does WTF mean?, 17 Nov 2013
This review is from: The World's End [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five friends reunite when one of them becomes obsessed with trying the drinking marathon again.

They are convinced by Gary, a 40-year old man trapped in the wilderness of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their home town and once again attempts to reach the fabled pub, The World's End.

As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realise the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind's.

Reaching The World's End is the least of their worries......

Seven years after the brilliant, but overlong Hot Fuzz, Wright, Pegg and Frost complete their fabled Cornetto trilogy with this, a hybrid of the first two movies. The 'Robots' are almost Zombie like, and the village pretty much resembles Sandford.

And while it doesn't hit the heights of SOTD (which nothing will for a long time), its on a par with Hot Fuzz, and its great to see the majority of the cast from both films back for very small roles, or extended cameos.

But I really feel that the film will be appreciated more by the thirty to forty something crowd, because the film oozes nostalgia from the early nineties and it really took me back to my schooldays and the music is amazing.

Pegg is different in this, he's the antagonist, the bad seed in the group, and although we never really know the reasons why (apart from the fact he misses his adolescence), his character oozes aggravation and sympathy at he same time.

Frost is as good as always, as is Considine. Freeman and Marsan get a little bit left out, but they still have some great scenes.

It takes a wile to get going, but once we hit the first pub, you will get the familiarity back from the first two movies, and Spaced.

Its not the masterpiece I was expecting, but I was laughing from begging. To end, and the host of cameos were just wonderful.

Brilliant in so many ways.
