Storyline

Top London cop, PC Nicholas Angel is good. Too good. And to stop the rest of his team looking bad, he is reassigned to the quiet town of Sandford. He is paired with Danny Butterman, who endlessly questions him on the action lifestyle. Everything seems quiet for Angel, until two actors are found decapitated. It is called an accident, but Angel isn't going to accept that, especially when more and more people turn up dead. Angel and Danny clash with everyone, whilst trying to uncover the truth behind the mystery of the apparent "accidents". Written by Film_Fan

Trivia

This is the only movie in The Cornetto Trilogy where Simon Pegg's character doesn't fall off a fence. In Shaun of the Dead, Shaun tried jumping over it and it fell once he was on top. In The World's End, Garry jumps on the fence and knocks it over. However, in Hot Fuzz, Nicholas (Simon Pegg) jumps over all of them successfully and Danny (Nick Frost) knocks the fence down.

Goofs

After Frank gets away from Danny at the model village near the end of the film and takes Danny's Police car, he drives the car through a fence into a very large, empty field. After the swan attacks Frank in the police car, it shows Danny and Nick watching from the model village as Frank's car careens into a tree in a much smaller field. For some reason they filmed this sequence in two separate locations. See more »

-:::::HOT FUZZ:::::- Don't Have High Expectations & Come Out Laughing!!!
2 April 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Hot Fuzz is a brilliant new Britsh comedy that really hits its mark!!! Hands down this fantastic film is the new benchmark in British comedies!

Simon Pegg throws you into the extremely tongue in cheek narrative with its quick pace edits, booming sounds and terrific camera work that we have come to expect from Edgar Wright since Shaun of the Dead. Simon Pegg has really exceeded my expectations and credit must also go to Nick Frost who plays the classic sidekick which he accomplishes so well. The aforementioned crafty work by Edgar Wright proves that his style creates some of the best action sequences in the business. Whether it be the shoot'em ups, chase scenes or the jump out of your seat surprises, Wright can really make a film move and does this one ever!!!

This is definitely one of those films you have to watch at least twice to come close to getting every single joke, because they come so hard and fast it is sometimes hard to stop laughing at the previous one in time to hear the next.

Even though the film does take a lot of twists and turns there isn't really a moment where it lacks energy. Sure there are parts that slow it down, but it needs this to build momentum to one of the most climactic and hysterical pieces in film history.

Speed is the key! It keeps this insanely funny narrative flowing while at the same time giving a huge insight into the extremely detailed characters. Each character brings something to the table. It is an inventive yet classic comedy that reaches most audiences with its tongue in cheek and witty humour.

People who thought the cop-comedy genre was finished should definitely see this creative film which will pluck those heart strings and have you slapping that knee while feasting your eyes on the adrenaline fueled action!!!
