Movie: Hot Fuzz

Movie: Hot Fuzz

From the makers (and some of the cast) of Shaun of the Dead. Instead of subverting zombie films in creating a movie that switches genre every two or three scenes, this movie is based on buddy cop films – and has worse language even than those. It also, in its scenes of violence has a high level of gore: if either of these make you uncomfortable, steer away from the film.

Somehow, it rises above these elements, and manages to have some great action scenes, and a lot of genuinely funny moments. It’s hard to describe why this ends up being an enjoyable film; if you liked Shaun of the Dead, you’ll probably enjoy it, and for the same sorts of reasons.
