Classic Pegg comedy with an action twist
- Hot Fuzz review by Rubber Ducky
Simon Pegg plays the part of a London Policeman who is dedicated to his job. His dilligence and mammoth arrest record are embarrassing the rest of the department so he gets packed off to a sleepy little village where he tries to maintain his enthusiasm whilst not dying of boredom. However, all is not as it seems as people start to mysteriously disappear or turn up dead in rather horrific circumstances. There are moments of genuine hilarity, together with some blood and gore which is so outrageous that you have to laugh. Nick Frost is good as the hapless sidekick, and it ultimately turns into a buddy movie. The action sequences are great, AND funny. Recommended for a night in with your mates.

Shaun of the Dead in Uniform!
- Hot Fuzz review by JG
Edgar Wrigh and Simon Peggs seconds collaboration, after the outstanding 'Shaun of the Dead' is more of the same and then some!
It concerns PC Nicolas Angel (Pegg) sent to the sleepy town of Sandford because he was so good as his job he was making the his colleagues look bad.
There he is teamed with the overweight, lazy but loverable Danny Butterman (the hilarious Nick Frost) as they investigate apparent 'accidents' weeks away from the village of the year awards.
The film is one of the funniest I've seen since 'Team America' and is very much of that humour as 90's action films are spoofed throughout.
I cannot recommend this enough. Great to watch with a few beers with your mates or even with your missis if she has a funny bone! If you're not laugh then it's probably because you're dead!
