Hilarious, surprisingly heartfelt, and the most fun of 2013. (by CipollaM926)
This is by far the funniest and most fun movie of the year; everyone involved is as good as ever. Honestly, this is a movie made by fans, for fans, and the entire theater loved it. I got to see this at a Cornetto Trilogy marathon comprised of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz leading up to the 10:00 PM premiere of the film, and EVERYONE had an incredible time. Everyone. First thing's first: is a comedy, so is it funny? FROM START TO FINISH! And, surprisingly, it's actually very heartfelt. The characters are very likable even if they're rude and belligerent, they have a good side to <more>
them and there is an argument between Simon Pegg and Nick Frost towards the end that was actually very moving. This film never sacrifices a character or plot point to make a joke, just like the other films in this trilogy, and that in itself shows the care here. A lot of movies are just mindless fun, but this is actually smart, and it in turn makes it so much more fun.Edgar Wright's timing and ability to create terrific fight scenes are as good as ever, and of course Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, and all others are just fantastic. And let me say something: these special effects are stellar throughout and it only cost $20 million? Truly well-spent. I just can't wait to see this again.And note: I am *not* comparing this to Shaun of the Dead or Hot Fuzz which are my two favorite comedies of all time because each entry in the Cornetto Trilogy is so different and all of them are truly exceptional. I will, however, compare it to everything else this year and it's the second-best movie of the year behind Stoker.9.7/10, amazing, two thumbs up, far above average, etc.
The Smashing Pumpkins may have mused that 'The End is the Beginning is the End,' but Edgar Wright knew better. He knew that for his beloved 'Cornetto Trilogy,' he would need an ending that could somehow tie up all of its strains of manic, voracious genre pastiche, savage wit and silliness, and, most importantly, its symphony to the reluctant aging of the schlubby, post- Shaun adult male. He knew he needed to do something special.So, in the words of Shaun, "what do you mean, DO something?" Well, getting the old gang together for a nostalgia-fuelled 'one last <more>
job' pub crawl, charged with more emotional weight and subtext than meets the eye should about do it. In this regard, Cornetto #3 is by far the most personal, mature, reflective, bittersweet and cognizant film in Wright's oeuvre. It knowingly winks at his past works don't forget to say hi to Brian, Marsha, and Tires, listen for the fruit machine, and enjoy an appropriately sly Cornetto cameo , while introducing some of his most hysterically snappy wordplay yet "maybe it's a windoor...!" . And, as no Wright film could ever be that straightforward, it's also, naturally, about the end of the world. Duh.To some, The World's End will be a cracking sci-fi pastiche - Invasion of the Body Snatchers handled with the chilly British terseness of The Day of the Triffids. To others, it's a riotous, boozy action-comedy with a kickass set of tunes, and prime viewing before hitting the pub or several with your mates. All of these things are true. But for me, it will always be a film about growing up. A film about finding closure, and purpose. A film about coming home and moving on at once. A film encouraging the Gary King in all of us to make peace with friends, the past, the future, and ourselves. It's the perfect filmic encapsulation of playing James Bond video games in my adolescent basement. And it's a film about pursuing your dreams, even - nay, especially - if your dreams are pointless, idiotic, and involve a sh*t-ton of drinking.Things get going at an almost ponderously slow and repetitive pace, forcing the viewer to be bludgeoned by Gary King, alongside his estranged high school buddies, into going on his quest with him. The tone is fun, but with a bit of an edge, Pegg bravely playing obnoxious at full tilt, keeping it unclear as to whether you can or should like him. But, upon arriving in the impossibly quaint Newton Haven and here Wright coins the most on-the-nose term for cultural assimilation and the dearth of family-run local business: "Starbucking". Remember that theme; it'll come in handy later , things pick up, and then some. Here, King's raucous enthusiasm becomes almost worrisome, especially in contrast with his bemused buddies, all more content to act their ages. Thankfully, the sci-fi framework comes to the rescue right when King is on the cusp of having to be serious. The solution, like fellow extraterrestrial alcoholicomedy Grabbers? Keep drinking - to "blend in", of course. And, as the Doors kick in, that's where the fun really begins.Wright's characteristic swish-pans and dynamic sound effects, paired with some of the most intricately crunchy fight choreography seen in ages make The World's End thrilling in the most visceral sense. There's no purer cinematic joy than a long-take tracking shot of Pegg weaving in and out of a chaotic robot throwdown, stepping on bar stools and counter tops, sipping his pint and throwing the occasional like a tipsy Buster Keaton, and it's impossible not to share in Wright's glee. The robot designs are eerily simple, the pace and physical slapstick are howlingly perfect, while the grim, sepia lighting is perfectly atmospheric for the intensifying sci-fi peril and slurring melodrama unfolding. And the climactic, belligerent belch of a speech demanding agency on behalf of the human race? I dare you to find more galvanizing words.Gary King is a courageously different Simon Pegg than has been unleashed before, and his manic energy, boundless but strained charisma and desperate arrogance make for his most achingly human but still hilarious creation yet. Nick Frost also digs into unforeseen dramatic meat, pairing his juggernaut physical comedy with real pain and hard-won regret, all the funnier for being so truthful. There's also a gag involving him literally punching a clock which may be the funniest in Wright's oeuvre. Paddy Considine and Martin Freeman collectively ace the two sides of the middle-aged-hipster coin post-meathead athletic emotional sensitivity and antiquated, bluetoothed tech-speak respectively , while Eddie Marsan finds both huge laughs and the most raw hangdog pathos in the sweetness of Peter Page. Sadly, in the film's only real fault, Edgar's boys club has no proper room for Rosamund Pike, and it's a real shame, as she's on typically superb form, and amiably hilarious to boot. As this instalment's former-007-turned- villain-with-uncomfortable-facial-hair, Pierce Brosnan tweaks his debonair charm and silky Irish accent to their most calmly sinister, while the inevitable Bill Nighy is deliciously bemused as a big lamp who just won't f*ck off back to Legoland.The World's End or, as everyone should henceforth refer to it, 'Smashy-Smashy-Egg-Men' , is not only a stupendously satisfying Cornetto resolution. It's perfectly paced, technically flawless, thrilling, hugely fun, and bravely emotional romp. It's arguably the funniest and most real mediation on friends, homecomings, and befuddled male aging to date. It's a belligerently, obstinately, chaotically, damn good film. It's something truly special. So hop into the Beast, blare those Soup Dragons, and ride Wright's beautiful disaster all the way to the bitter end. Or lager end. Because, be honest: what could be a more heartfelt answer to Primal Scream's recurring query - "Just what is it that you want to do?"-10/10
An Excellent And Hilarious SCI-FI/Action/Comedy And An Amazing Conclusion The Cornetto Trilogy. (by jcbutthead86)
The World's End is an excellent and hilarious film that greatly mixes SCI-FI,Action,Comedy along with amazing direction,a terrific cast,brilliant laughs and Humor,a fantastic script,thrilling Action and is a great conclusion to Edgar Wright's Cornetto Trilogy.Set in the United Kingdom,The World's End tells the story of Gary King Simon Pegg ,an alcoholic who tracks down his former High School best friends Andy Nick Frost ,Steven Paddy Considine ,Oliver Martin Freeman and Peter Eddie Marsan and wants them to complete the Golden Mile and go to twelve pubs including one called The <more>
World's End and have lots of beers. But the group's plans are interrupted when they have to deal with killer robots who replace humans. Now,Gary and his friends have to stop the killer robots while still trying to get to...The World's End.The World's End is an amazing and truly hilarious movie that is the third and finale film in Edgar Wright's Three Flavors Cornetto Trilogy that began with the first film Shaun Of The Dead,the second film Hot Fuzz and now with the third and final film The World's End,a movie that is probably the largest and most ambitious of the three films and also has the trilogy go out with an explosive,funny and over the top bang. If Shaun Of The Dead was a send-up on Zombie films and Hot Fuzz was a Spoof on Action movies then The World's End is a movie that tackles Science Fiction. Right from the very beginning The World's End is a film that pulls into an unforgettable experience that is funny,wild and full of great energy and a film that is bizarre and in a world on it's own where you don't what is going to happen next and you as a viewer are along for the ride. The Comedy and laughs in this film is hilarious and fun whether it is from the characters,the dialog or situations that happen throughout the film and the laughs and jokes in the movie are done with great wit and creativity that is memorable and fresh as well as non-stop. What I love about TWE is how the first 20-30 minutes of the film is about a group of old friends reuniting and drinking at pubs but later takes a turn when the SCI-FI element comes into play. The way Edgar Wright tackles the SCI-FI genre is hilarious and ingenious with TWE making great references to Science Fiction films from the 1970s such as Invasion Of The Body Snatchers and The Stepford Wives while at the same time establishing it's own world and rules. The SCI-FI in this film is handled with an oddball and weird sense of Humor and is done with style and substance that is dazzling with madcap fun that goes on and on. The screenplay by Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright is brilliant and is filled with great dialog and Humor that never misses and beat and will have you roaring with laughter and in stitches. If the character Shaun in Shaun Of The Dead was an unlikely hero that had no ambitions and Nicolas Angel in Hot Fuzz was too serious about his job as a police officer,then the character Gary King in The World's End is a guy that is in a funny way trying to relive his teenage years with his friends. Gary is a hilarious and interesting character because despite being a struggling alcoholic Gary still wants to hang with his friends and complete the mission by trying to get to the pub The World's End and wants to do it even if there are killer robots after him and his friends. The relationship between Gary and his friends is funny and feels real because although Gary hasn't seen his friends in over 20 years and Gary's friends have problems with Gary himself the group all care about each other especially when they have to deal with dangerous killer robots. The killer robots in this film are truly psychotic,wild and funny all at once because they come in big numbers and want to take over the world no matter what happens and when Gary and his friends confront and fight the robots many scenes and situations are unpredictable and insane and you never know where the film is going to go. The Action and fight scenes in TWE are amazing and exciting and will have you in awe because with each Action scene there is a great pace,thrill and attention to detail in each scene that Edgar Wright does really well. The Action scenes are brilliant,nonstop and will just blow your mind. The ending of TWE is excellent,explosive and will have you on the edge of your seat mixing laughs and over the top SCI-FI insanity that will stick with you after watching. The ending is a outstanding conclusion to this film and to the entire Three Flavors Of Cornetto Trilogy and will have you cheering and smiling.The whole cast is great in their roles. Simon Pegg is excellent and hilarious as Gary King,with Pegg bringing great laughs and a manic energy to the role. Nick Frost is brilliant and funny as Andy,with Frost going against type and playing the role straight while still being funny. Paddy Considine Steven ,Martin Freeman Oliver and Eddie Marsan Peter also do terrific jobs as Gary and Andy's friends. Rosamund Pike is fantastic as Sam,Oliver's sister and Steven's longtime crush. Pierce Bronson is wonderful in his small role as Guy Shephard,Gary's old schoolteacher.The direction by Edgar Wright is brilliant and stylish,with Wright always moving the camera with a great pace,style and over the top energy while also doing a great job with the Action and fight scenes. Amazing direction,Wright.The score by Steven Price is great,intense and fits in well with the film's Action. A wonderful score,Price.In final word,if you love Edgar Wright,Simon Pegg,Nick Frost,SCI-FI,Comedy,Action,Shaun Of The Dead,Hot Fuzz or genre films in general,I highly suggest you see The World's End,an excellent and hilarious SCI-FI-Action-Comedy that you won't soon forget. Highly Recommended. 10/10.
A fantastic conclusion to the Cornetto trilogy. (by ollie1939-97-957994)
I didn't think this trilogy could get any better. However it somehow exceeded by expectations. With fantastic direction from Edgar Wright,smart writing from Wright and Simon Pegg and hilarious performances from Pegg, Nick Frost and everyone else the World's end is a great way to end the trilogy. The story focuses on a group of childhood friends who go back to their hometown in order to repeat a legendary pub crawl that ends with a pub known as the World's End. However they realize that their whole town has been taken over by robots and it's up to them to stop them from taking <more>
over the world. I will admit that my only criticism of the film is that it does start off a little slowly. The jokes felt a little stiff at times with their execution and most of the humor was coming from Pegg's character. However once the robots come in the movie does pick up the pace and lives up to Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz The performances are very funny with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost actually switching roles. Pegg is more of the bumbling idiot whereas Frost is the straight man. The other performance are also good with Martin Freeman,Paddy Considine, Rosamund Pike and Eddie Marsan. I also loved the ending which has probably the best ending out of any of the Cornetto trilogy movies Overall the movie is incredibly funny despite having a slow start. It's a perfect mix of comedy and science fiction. I hope there's more to come from these very funny and talented guys.
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 <more>
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!
Being a huge fan of Shaun Of The Dead and Hot Fuzz, I had high hopes for the finale of the 'Blood and Ice cream Trilogy'. In my opinion I thought it was an excellent final installment and had hilarious laughs and gags and some insane fight scenes which was a nice surprise. The story was original and easy to relate to and I didn't feel bored or disappointed at any stage. I loved the familiar cornetto gag at the end and the cameos were also a nice touch, it was good to see faces from the previous movies appearing again - and Pierce Brosnan was actually funny. I think fans of the <more>
previous movies won't be disappointed, I laughed the whole way through. 8/10
Edgar Wright brings us the final installment of the Cornetto trilogy with his most out-there comedy to date. The World's End is an action-packed, sci-fi comedy where a number of familiar faces return to help Gary King Simon Pegg achieve his lifelong dream and complete the 'golden mile' in their hometown of Newton Haven. Five guys, 12 pubs, 60 pints!I'd written a paragraph about the character's we see from previous films but that'd spoil it a little. You're welcome. I think part of the fun is spotting these for yourself and realising how close knit the cast are... <more>
so moving swiftly on!As you'd expect, the film was cleverly written and it was a lot of fun to watch. However, there's a reference a minute to Edgar Wrights previous work which, for fans, isn't a bad thing, but newcomers to the trilogy will struggle to keep up.Within the film, there are a number of stories and ideas going on here, but don't let us spoil it for you. The World's End is out now and, for veterans of the trilogy, well worth a watch! Nick Frost was a highlight for me, playing a different type of character this time round and for the better. Usually the happy-go-lucky friend, he plays a much more complex and leader type role. With so many other great names in the film, there was a risk that Nick Frost could fall in to the shadow of Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine or Eddie Marsan who was awesome by the way ... but he doesn't. This is Frost's greatest film yet.If you haven't seen Shaun of the Dead or Hot Fuzz, it might be hit or miss so check them out before this... it is the end of a trilogy after all! Watching The World's End first would be like watching Return of the King and, even though they're unrelated, you'll feel left out when everyone starts laughing at a fruit machine playing in the background and you have no idea why.The film will do well, regardless how good it is - it was a great ending to the trilogy that started almost ten years ago. These have put British cinema on the map. And even though it's a mixed review, ranging from a 6 to a 9 out of 10 ... the golden mile sounds like a great idea - who's up for it? DW.
A Film About Grown-Ups Looking Back... Made by Grown-Ups Looking Back (by TheCineSinge)
The World's End is about characters who have grown-up but are drawn back into their younger years. Immediately, it seems this is a comparison that can be made with Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost in their making of this film.For me, Gary King played by Pegg represents the youthful side of both the film's characters and of Pegg, Frost and Wright; fun, playful, reckless but forgotten and moving away from. However, once coerced into reminiscing, it all comes back.This is reflected in the film itself which starts off rather slow and dry, and surprisingly, isn't as funny as <more>
what it ought to be. So although it does take a bit longer to get going than may be desired, once it does, the laughter flows freely pretty much right through until the end of the film. I have no hesitations in saying it is a funny film.However, while the laughter is mostly consistent - coming from another fine Pegg and Wright script - the final 10-15 minutes are, in fact, a bit clunky and long-winded despite containing some of the most heartfelt moments of the trilogy.Nevertheless, it is a joy to see Pegg and Frost on-screen together again. They crack jokes left, right and centre as we are used to but due to Gary and Andy's Frost rocky relationship, it's not often with each other. This lack of warmth in their relationship, though a bold change from the previous films, does strain at times and presents a rather unwanted opposite here and there to what we are used to - friends, fun, immature. There are, in effect, 5 leads which does sometimes hinder the Pegg-Frost double-team.However, since there are 5 leads, this patch is mostly covered up. Martin Freeman, Eddie Marsan and Paddy Considine do an excellent job as King's high-school buddies, the latter in particular - Considine is a gem.The World's End is the strongest film, thematically, in the Cornetto Trilogy. It's about adulthood vs adolescence, regret, friendship and above all the state of modern society. It does not nod nearly as much towards or satirise genre like Shaun of the Dead or Hot Fuzz. No, instead the nods and satire are mostly out and the themes are in.This is half-welcome, half-disappointing for the final film of the trilogy. On one hand, since the other two satirise film genres it is odd the this doesn't and honestly, a bit disappointing. This is much more of it's own beast but, for a Pegg, Wright and Frost film, it does feel far too much of an unexplored area. On the other hand, the concerns of the central plot and the thematic content give the film the strength to round off the trilogy in a fitting and appropriate way.Furthermore, The World's End contains many of the little recurring elements from Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz which show such loving attention to detail and continuity: the Cornettos, the Wright short-shot montages, the fantastic soundtrack, the amazing use of the word 'C**t', the noise of the pub fruit machine, and many other little details that have made appearances in the previous two films are here.Not only are these recurring details present but so too are some of Wright, Pegg and Frost's collaborators with their own fantastic cameos. I won't give any away specifically but there are actors from previous films in the trilogy and beyond stretching back to Spaced, here making appearances and it's actually rather heart-warming. Evidently, roots have not been forgotten.However, the impressive camera-work of Shaun of the Dead with it's long, Steadicam tracking shots and Hot Fuzz the well-studied and executed shots deriving from the action blockbuster genre was not as present this time round. In The World's End, the CGI gets in the way too often for the camera-work to shine and this is most apparent in the film's several fight scenes. Fun though they are, they seem off-kilter and as if they have been tinkered with a little too much. Though I don't think it is as adventurous with the camera-work, it is still a fine looking film which I credit with Edgar Wright's choice to continue shooting on film instead of digital. Despite what may appear to be a lot of grumbling with The World's End it is still very accomplished and probably one of the better films I will see this year. Is it funny? Certainly, without a doubt. Is it as funny as Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz? Not quite. And it is the memory and affection for these two films and the frankly unavoidable and inevitable comparisons between them which unintentionally hurt The World's End. The influence of these two films, on the other hand - how they got where they are to make this film - has undoubtedly not been forgotten. However, the plot itself and the more heavy thematic content in place of the fun, snappy genre references, give Pegg, Wright and Frost the air of saying that there will always be time to reflect, have fun and cherish the memories of younger, more immature days but that they are older and more mature now and it is time to move on though I don't wish suggest that they wanted this film done and out the way - a lot of love clearly went into it, as with the whole trilogy . If this is the message we are to be left with, I will say that is a fitting way to end any a trilogy.A desire for just a little more immaturity and laughter lingers over The World's End nevertheless but it is still a very good film, one I would not hesitate to recommend, and I am forever grateful to Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and the rest of their crew for completing an unforgettable trilogy.
Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, and Edgar Wright has been one of the biggest success stories of British cinema of the past decade. (by nesfilmreviews)
The movie-making team of Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, and Edgar Wright has been one of the biggest success stories of British cinema of the past decade. With "Shaun of the Dead" 2004 and "Hot Fuzz" 2007 , the trio demonstrated originality, ingenuity, and most significantly, capable of drawing a large, appreciative audience. Now they're back with the long-awaited third movie of what's become unofficially known as the "Cornetto trilogy." Like it's predecessors, director Edgar Wright loves paying homage to American cinema; "Shaun" pays its <more>
respects to George Romero, "Fuzz" nods its head to over the top action, buddy flicks, and "World's End" takes a page from our classic American sci-fi films.In "The World's End," 20 years after attempting an epic pub-crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hell-bent on trying the drinking marathon once again. Once convinced to stage an encore by Gary King Simon Pegg , a 40-year- old man trapped in the mindset of his mid 20's, drags his reluctant friends back to their hometown, and once again attempt to reach the fabled pub - The World's End."The World's End" plays on the notion that any time you return to your old stomping grounds, changes are inevitable. Upon returning to their small town roots—a place so boring it boasts about having the first roundabout in all of England—the crew notices that things are a little strange. As it turns out, the town residents are now blue- blooded alien robots. Pretty soon, the group of friends find they are not only fighting to recapture who they once were, but to preserve who they are."The World's End" follows similar thematic and structural paths as the other films in the trilogy. While it is definitely intended as a satirical spoof on one level, it also works just as well as a fully functional sci-fi story. You have elements of body snatching, invasions, and more than a few overt nods to John Carpenter's classic "They Live" 1998 , in the way the aliens integrate into their society and take over. It's satire in such a loving fashion that it comes across as infectiously charming.If there is anything to criticize here, maybe it's that the genre is a bit more skewered and less defined than in its predecessors. However, "The World's End" does cap an unofficial trilogy, and the grievance is overly critical given the nature of the movies. Long-time fans of the trilogy will appreciate the reversal of roles, casting Pegg as the selfish screw-up, and Frost as the one who has it together. This allows Pegg to fully unleash his gift for gab, and for Frost to show off his considerable skill for physical comedy.With great gags, better fights, and fan pleasing cameos, "The World's End" is exactly the sort of British-accented, genre-blending pleasure we've come to expect from its creative trio, and we can only anticipate to what the future holds.
