As this is the conclusion of the unofficial Three Flavors Cornetto Trilogy, the characters are seen eating peppermint with chocolate chip ice-cream - as what the Cornetto green wrapper represents. According to Edgar Wright, green represents science fiction and extraterrestrial elements, which is the main motif in the film. For Wright's other films, Shaun of The Dead, it was red / strawberry flavor, symbolizing blood and zombies while the second part, Hot Fuzz, it was blue/ vanilla symbolizing the police. See more »

A thrilling movie with great cinematography, sound track and acting but lacks plot and justice towards the end of the movie.
From the word go I was intrigued by the use of camera techniques. A heads up for this was through the duo's (Simon Pegg and Nick Frost) previous film Hot Fuzz. Quick shots and lots of them definitely attracted my eyes to the film and encouraged the audience to try and connect with the characters that were being introduced.
Backed up by great acting by Simon Pegg in particularly, as well as a very bold and exciting sound track, the first half of the movie was mildly watch-able and enjoyable. Edgar Wright allows you time to connect with the main characters, but in my own view, he might have taken too long to do this. With a prolonged introduction to the sci-fi side of the movie, I felt that I had gotten the concept of the movie wrong, that is until the twist of the movie was introduced.
Without given away any spoilers I would recommend this movie to anyone who is interested in previous Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg/Nick Frost starred movies, as well as people who are patient enough to withstand a half hour of character development before touching on any real action or sci-fi themes.
