The World’s End is about a bunch of friends who just won’t grow up as they were lured into delivering to us a never ending laugh fest while trying to drink themselves to an early grave.
The World’s End is a fine comedy and a nice end to the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy (which is a series of comedy films directed by Edgar Wright, written by Wright and Simon Pegg, produced by Nira Park, and starring Pegg and Nick Frost), following Shaun of the Dead (2004) and Hot Fuzz (2007).

The World’s End did have an unbelievable twist to a somewhat alien invasion, and I guarantee that you will not see it coming. When you compare this movie to its predecessors, to me it was lacking in the falling over your head humor that Shaun of the Dead had, and the heighten length of imagination that Hot Fuzz produced. But in the end, The World’s End is a must watch.

The story in the movie is about a group of friends led by Gary King (Simon Pegg) an alcoholic, who decided to track down his friends from high school so that they could complete the Golden Mile, an infamous pub crawl (which is the act of visiting and drinking in multiple pubs or bars in a single night) encompassing 12 pubs in their hometown of Newton Haven.

20 years earlier the group attempted this crawl, but failed to reach the final pub The World's End. Gary now determined as ever to reach the end roped-in his old buddies  Peter Page (Eddie Marsan), Oliver "O-Man" Chamberlain (Martin Freeman), Steven Prince (Paddy Considine), and Andy Knightley (Nick Frost).

The journey started well and was going on smoothly until Gary had a fist fight with a man in the toilet which led to Gary decapitating him and noticing that he was not human.

Faced with this new discovery, the group decided to finish what they have started so as not to draw attention to themselves, well ... it didn’t work.

The visual effects in the movie was OK, and the stunts were impressive as they were done by Brad Allen who is part of the martial arts team of Jackie Chan.

If you get to go to the cinema to see this film, just be ready to be entertained. For me this may not be the best the trio of Pegg, Frost and Wright have put together, but it stands on its own as a good movie to see any day.

The sad thing on my mind though after seeing this movie is that, the trio may not pull out any other movie together. It is sad because their movies are guaranteed basket of laughs.
