Storyline

Top London cop PC Nicholas Angel is good. Too good. To stop the rest of his team looking bad, he is reassigned to the quiet town of Sandford. He is paired with Danny Butterman, who endlessly questions him on the action lifestyle. Everything seems quiet for Angel until two actors are found decapitated. It is called an accident, but Angel won't accept that, especially when more and more people turn up dead. Angel and Danny clash with everyone while they try to uncover the truth behind the mystery of the apparent "accidents". Written by Film_Fan

Trivia

The place where Angel is going to live is located on "Spencer Hill", which is probably a reference to Bud Spencer and Terence Hill, a comedy movie duo, who featured in many films during the 1970s and 1980s. See more »

Goofs

After the officers gear up for the final battle, in nearly every shot of them approaching the supermarket, the sound of guns being cocked is heard, even though no one is actually cocking a weapon. Further, there's more cocking than there are guns in the scene. See more »

Crazy Credits

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 »

Alternate Versions

In Singapore, the theatrical release was altered in order to obtain an NC16 classification after the original version of the film was passed with an M18 rating. These changes implemented to the film removed some stronger instances of violence. See more »

Even better than Shaun of the dead
2 May 2007 | by chrichtonsworldSee all my reviews

"Hot Fuzz" is brilliant! People who like British humor will love this one! It is really funny! It manages to make fun of ridiculous plots used in action movies and at the same time entertain you with their own ridiculous plot which is quite thrilling! Even when you don't get the subtle humor there are more than enough visual jokes to be enjoyed! I thought it was a stroke of genius to use some serious actors like Edward Woodward,Stuart Wilson and Timothy Dalton! (Timothy Dalton was accused of playing a much too serious James Bond! Well,in "Hot Fuzz" he shows that he can be dangerously funny!) As a parody on action movies this movie succeeds where others have failed! I think the credit has to go to the whole team who made this and "Shaun of the dead" including the actors! It shows that they actually like the movies they make fun of! That is essential for the the jokes to work! I thought "Hot Fuzz" is hilarious and very entertaining! It certainly is one of the funniest movies at the moment! Go check it out!
