Storyline

20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hell bent on trying the drinking marathon again. They are convinced to stage an encore by mate Gary King, a 40-year old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their home town and once again attempts to reach the fabled pub, The World's End. As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realize the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind's. Reaching The World's End is the least of their worries.

Trivia

In the epilogue, when Gary and the young blanks are approaching the bar in The Rising Sun, there is a small sign with a number 13 over a doorway next to a British flag. See more »

Goofs

When Gary crosses off the tenth pub on the map, the figure of the "modern art" statue can be seen on the map just below the second and third pubs. But since this is the same map he used for the original crawl, before The Network arrived, and since the statue is apparently part of The Network, it should not appear on the map. It is also apparent that the statue was not there at the time of the original Golden Mile since they wonder about what it is when they pass it earlier in the night. See more »

Didn't Want It To End
16 August 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The Cornetto series continues with nothing short of what you'd expect from Wright, Pegg and Frost. Delivering top laughs with great action and a little bit of romance to suit all audiences. The film's visual style is quite appealing. The only downside to this film some may see is that the gore is not traditional (being robots). The style of violence in Shaun Of The Dead and Hot Fuzz shine through with just a bit of a blue tint. The characters are just plain lovable and hilarious in their own ways. Most of the laughs in this film came straight from dialogue of characters rather than visuals. All in all I thoroughly enjoyed this film, a fun comedy with nothing to pick on whatsoever A top film just like the others!
