Wright and Pegg are storytellers who weave their naughty bits into genuine characters and a plot. It's a ridiculous plot, but one that's absolutely in the spirit of the films they're satirizing.
88
Pegg and Wright are armed with an endlessly impressive arsenal of attention grabbers, from witty editing tricks to a wry soundtrack and a joke-packed script that demands multiple viewings.
88
It's as laceratingly entertaining as its predecessor.

Charlotte Observer
If you see Hot Fuzz, you'll never again watch a Michael Bay film without howling with disrespectful laughter.
83
In the very funny cop comedy Hot Fuzz, overachieving London police officer Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) commits a very British sin: He's too good.
75
It's a blast.
75
Plays like two films in one, and succeeds on both levels.
75
It's bloody carnage - or it's ketchup, or bolognese sauce, at the very least.
75
Chicago Tribune
The best of it is a riot--a "Bad Boys II" fireball hurled with exquisite accuracy at a quaint English town peopled by Agatha Christie archetypes.
75
A real actioner, generous with the bullets and blood and chase scenes, that simultaneously mocks shoot-'em-ups.
63
Though it's no "Monty Python," Hot Fuzz is a clever, over-the-top marriage of mayhem and merriment.
60
The Hollywood Reporter
All the action is staged with energy, but it gets relentless without anything really funny going on.
