While the word "robot" does come from a Czech word, the word is actually "robota", not "robotnik", and it means "heavy labor" or specifically "serf labor", so robot does not mean a "slave". See more »

People going to see the film at the Broadway Cinema in Letchworth, the location for the outside of The Mermaid, were shown a short clip beforehand featuring Simon Pegg, Edgar Wright and Nick Frost, welcoming them to the cinema and hoping they enjoyed watching it from inside one of the filming locations.

A little late with this review. I saw this the weekend it came out but did not have time for a review until now. The world's end marks the third film in Nick and Simon's trilogy. This time around the boys are battling an army of killer robots. Simon and Nick have switched roles for this film in which Simon plays the bumbling idiot. Simon recruits his old high school friends to conquer an epic night of drinking that they failed to do years prior, however now everyone is grown up except for Simon's character who still lives in the past. However they soon realize the town has been taken over by a sinister robot army.
Basically if you enjoyed either Shaun of the dead or Hot Fuzz you will love this film. Hot Fuzz is my favourite comedy of all time so far, however i would rank this movie right up there with Shaun of the dead. The humour in this film is very subtle compared to their previous two films. They try some new things with this film and the result is a crazy mass effect inspired ending. This is a great film to end the summer, and while it may not be everyone's cup of tea, it will surely be a cult classic in time.
