Sargent Angel confronts the suspected shop lifter while he is still in the supermarket. At that stage, no actual crime had been committed. It is only when shop lifter passes the checkout and leave the store without paying for items that the crime is committed. Angel throws a can at the suspect, bringing him down with a blow to the head. This could be classed as unreasonable force by Angel. Even when using their baton, British Police officers are restricted as to where they should strike a suspect. See more »

In the UK version, which is released by Universal Pictures, sound effects of police whistles, bells and sirens are perfectly timed to accentuate the graphics of both the Universal Pictures and Working Title logos. The US version, released by Rogue Pictures, misses out on this little bit of a joke. See more »

After Shaun of the Dead, this second pairing of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost was very high on my wanted list, and it didn't disappoint in the least.
Hot Fuzz is crammed full of excellent characters, ranging from the eccentric to the diabolical, and every one gets at least one laugh during the course of the movie and most of them get many more. I don't mean to suggest that this film is wall to wall gags; in fact it is far from it, instead it is just very clever and often very subtle humour that runs continuously throughout the film.
Another pleasant surprise was the wonderfully impressive murder scenes, which were pretty gruesome and definitely stood out from the general vibe of the film, which made them far more involving. As well as the comedy and the murders, there is also a genuine sense of mystery surrounding these events and it definitely makes for compulsive viewing.
Just in case all that wasn't enough to satisfy you, there is a very action packed and explosive end sequence that is so out of place and ludicrous it works like a charm, and simply caps the film off in style superbly.
For me this film was every bit as good as Shaun of the Dead, and its definitely one of the best comedies ever made.
