Nicholas Angel is the finest cop London has to offer. He has an arrest record that is higher than any other officer on the force. As a result, Angel's superiors send him to a place where his talents won't be quite so obvious. They send him to the sleepy and seemingly crime-free village of Sandford. He is partnered with the well-meaning but overeager police officer Danny Butterman who is the son of the police chief. Danny is a huge action movie fan and believes this may be his chance to experience the life of gunfights and car chases. However, as a series of grisly accidents rocks the village, Angel is convinced that Sandford is not what it seems and as the intrigue deepens, Danny's dreams of explosive, high-octane, car-chasing, gunfighting, all-out action seem more and more like a reality.

Hot Fuzz is an entertaining British action/comedy and buddy cop movie from the director and writers of Shaun of the Dead and The World's End. It is overly long for the type of movie it is and would have been better with some additional editing, but it is redeemed by leads Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, a good supporting cast and very funny lines and scenes throughout. I can't help but enjoy all the references to Point Break also. Hot Fuzz is rated R for language and violent content, including some graphic images. Warning: it is very gory.

This is and utterly silly "Mel Brooks type" police action movie. Probably best watched while heavily imbibing in adult beverages.

Genial and fast-paced but utterly predictable. Best part is the super sound mix (DTS) on the Blu-Ray copies.

Pegg+Frost+Wright = Great

I don't think I "get" Simon Pegg.

A really great, funny, and enjoyable movie from Simon Pegg. Also check out "Paul" and others from him.

Gross at times, but absolutely hilarious. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are fantastic. This is a comedy, not a film with pretentious to be intellectual or complicated. So watch it for what it is!

This is a 2007 black comedy directed by Edgar Wright.
It is a hilarious, insanely thrilling, nonsensically funny, absolutely outrageous and laugh-your-head-off black comedy.
You should be able to enjoy it at the edge of your seat.

Well I remember the popular opinions when this movie came out -- "disappointing", "not as good as Shaun of the Dead", "slow and boring", "British humour", etc. Now, with some exceptions (see below), people not only loooove Hot Fuzz, they ALWAYS looooved Hot Fuzz. But ask yourself: if no one was watching me, would I choose a character-based indy comedy, or an Adam Sandler film? Honestly, if you think the average North American blockbuster comedy is hilarious, HF will probably bore you, though the concluding action scenes can be enjoyed by anybody.
