The film progresses through three increasingly larger negative formats: The opening flashback footage is standard 16mm, from then up until the robots appear it's 3-perf Super 35, and from then it's 4-perf Panavision anamorphic until the ending scenes, which switch back to Super 35. See more »

If Hot Fuzz is a 10, Shaun of the Dead a 9, then World's End is an 8. It isn't as brilliant as Hot Fuzz which I can watch time and time again and still need to watch through till the end. It isn't quite as touching or well executed as Shaun of the Dead, though it does have its warming moments.
I'm not entirely sure the end is as good as it could have been.
It is a good end to the trilogy, though. I like how they've switched around the friendship between Pegg and Frost this time, so Pegg is the idiot who's more likely to get himself killed and Frost is the sensible one who cares, too much, in spite of all the let downs. I almost expected it to stay the same and wondered how they'd almost kill Frost this time!
I've always been a Pegg fan, since Big Train, he can't do much wrong by me. But I've tried to be as critical as possible considering I was so happy just to see the guys back in action. Best thing that could have been released this summer for me and I think any other fan will feel the same.
