Hot Fuzz (2007)


Simon Pegg
Nick Frost

Directed by Edgar Wright

Nothing can be greater than when a great script meets a great cast and that is what Hot Fuzz brings to the table.

Hot Fuzz is the one British buddy cop movie that everyone has seen and has huge respect for. The movie stars Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and pretty much everyone else in the British film industry.
Starting like a joke and ending like one, the movie is a never-ending thrill of explosions and gun shots. When everyone in the movie has gone bunkers only you and the lead seems to wonder how you are managing to keep your cool without blowing up on everyone on screen.

From the people that brought you and starred in Shaun of the Dead (2004), Hot Fuzz is the second film in the Wright and Pegg's Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy (Shaun of the Dead (2004), Hot Fuzz & The World’s End (2013)).
Of the three Hot Fuzz is the most financially successful.

Starting with the introduction to the greatest police officer Scotland Yard has ever had Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) was so good that the only person that was better was him a year after.
He was sent away to a remote country away from the city life and the limelight for one major reason, he was making his superiors and co-officers look bad.

The whole attempt was to send him to a place where nothing happens with the hope of putting a lid on this over achiever.
In the new village, this over achiever already got to work before his expected resumption date. He arrested almost half the town for one crime or the other.
Paired with Danny Butterman (Nick Frost), who was a naïve officer who has never done real police work (nobody in the town has ever done real police work) both stumbled on something big.
Many deaths started happening in the town making Angel suspicious, many of the deaths have loose ends that are inconclusive, but the police force rights off these deaths as accidents.

Angel will have none of that and he decided to investigate the murders by himself and his investigations led to a whole rollercoaster of a movie for us to watch.

If you have not seen Hot Fuzz over the years and has not buttered to go seek it out, you are missing out of one of the best British buddy cop genre.
Acting in the movie is magnificent, the action is awesome and the lines are so different and unique that you will be amazed by how the writers were able to think them out.
