Product Description

Product Description

Get ready for a gut-busting, outrageous comedy from the guys that created Shaun of the Dead. Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) is a big-city cop who can't be stopped - but he's making everyone else on the force look bad. When he is reassigned to a small, quiet town, he struggles with this new, seemingly idyllic world and his bumbling partner (Nick Frost). But their dull existence is interrupted by several grisly and suspicious accidents, and the crime-fighting duo turn up the heat and hand out high-octane, car-chasing, gun-fighting big-city justice in this hilarious hit.

In Shaun of the Dead, it was the zombie movie and the anomie of modern life. In Hot Fuzz, Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg set their sights on the buddy cop blockbuster and the eccentric English village. The two worlds collide when overachieving London officer Nicholas Angel (Pegg) is promoted to sergeant. The catch is that he's being transferred to Agatha Christie country. His superiors (the comic trifecta of Martin Campbell, Steve Coogan, and Bill Nighy) explain that he's making the rest of the force look bad. On the surface, Sandford is a sleepy little burg where the most egregious crimes, like loitering, are committed by hoody-sporting schoolboys. In truth, it's a hotbed of Willow Man-style evil. Upon his arrival, Chief Butterman (Jim Broadbent) partners Angel with his daft son, Danny (Nick Frost, Pegg's Shaun co-star), who aspires to kick criminal "arse" like the slick duo in Bad Boys II. When random citizens start turning up dead, he gets his chance. With the worshipful Danny at his side, Angel shows his cake-eating colleagues how things are done in the big city. As in Shaun, their previous picture, Wright and Pegg hit their targets more often than not. With the success of that debut comes a bigger budget for car chases, shoot-outs, and fiery explosions. Though Hot Fuzz earns its R-rating with salty language and grisly deaths, the tone is more good-natured than mean-spirited. A wall-to-wall soundtrack of boisterous British favorites, like the Kinks, T-Rex, and Sweet, contributes to the fast-paced fun. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

His superiors being jealous of his perfect record, Sergeant Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) is transferred from London to the seemingly crime-free village of Sandford. There he meets his new partner, Danny Butterman (Nick Frost), the witless son of the police chief. A series of shocking accidents upsets the village, and Angel is certain that the village is not what it seems.

Brilliant acting, well-directed.
Yes, some scenes at the end are gruesome, but they are well done and quite funny.

Filled with car chases, gun fights, explosive bodies, this is a hilarious comedy.

(Many thanks to a friend for recommending this movie to me; I wouldn't have watched it otherwise, and would have missed on a great British film.)

This movie is pure Action entertainment. The makers of "Shaun of the Dead" do it again. This time they do for Action movies what "Shaun" did for horror.

Tough as nails Constable Nicholas Angel is transferred from his preferred London Police Force to the sleepy town of Sanford. At first, an idyllic piece of British country paradise, Sanford soon unravels with a string of mysterious deaths that lead Angel into the tormented underbelly that is Sanford's dark heart. But first he must capture the resident fugitive swan, deal with renegade hedge trimmers, and pick up some crisps from the shop.

In terms of video quality, "Hot Fuzz" is simply fantastic. This High definition transfer is spot on. Every blade of grass in the gorgeous countryside can be appreciated, every cobblestone, and leaf are clear and bright.

The sound will floor you. Primarily a comedy, the dialog in Hot Fuzz comes through loud and clear. Explosions and gunfire are igniting to the senses without subduing the crisp dialog and plentiful one-liners.

The special features on this HD DVD will keep you busy for days. Packed with goodies you'll get plenty of mileage from this title. Also, presented in dual format HD DVD + regular DVD you can take this movie wherever you like.

This movie makes "Lethal Weapon" and "Rush Hour" look like drowsy naps in the afternoon. The laughs don't stop, and the action will take your breath away. Out of 5 stars I rate "Hot Fuzz" an 11

One of the funniest send-ups of the action hero that I have ever seen. Top-cop of London, Nicholas Angel, is transferred to a sleepy English village because he is too good a cop. Thereupon he encounters many grisly deaths which the rest of the local police service consider "accidents". Whoever penned this script has a very warped and wonderful sense of humour. As the English might say, "Spot on!".

Hot Fuzz(released Apr/07)stars everyone's fave English sensations Simon Pegg and Nick Frost starring as Constable Nicholas Angel and Constable Butterman,respectively.Pegg and Frost are closerthanthis in real life and they also brought in their friend director/writer Edgar Wright,and when all is said and done they whipped up a winner of a movie.
The plot takes place in London,England(I had to say that because I live in that city in Ontario!).Const.Angel is a supercop of sorts,graduating highest in his class from the police academy,earning all sorts of awards in his career and basically showing up every other living and breathing person to put on a cop uniform within the greater London area.One day he is pulled into his superiors offices to be told that he is to be transferred to a sleepy little town miles north of the city,called Sandford.
He arrives in town only to almost immediately arrest the entire clientele of a local there,thereby,for all intents and purposes,shutting it down.One of the people he arrests that night happens to be the son of the Police Chief Frank Butterman.The town(and the movie as a whole)is populated with a plethora of off the wall characters and Angel has a tough time of it fitting in.One day he stumbles onto a clue that something is very amiss in Sandford after a local business man gets blown up in his own home,and that the suspected perpetrator might be the owner of a local supermarket.Then the local writer of a newspaper is killed trying to provide Angel with an important clue and Angel soon after witnesses the murder of a shopkeeper,dying horribly by gardening shears.The perp is a hooded figure and when Angel gives chase,as fast as he is,he cannot fathom the unbelievable speed of the pursued who he loses.

Format: Blu-ray
If you are familiar with the writings of Dave Barry then you will be very comfortable with this movie. Dave Barry has the ability to take something that seems so common and straightforward, then slightly exaggerate and embellish and expound until you find yourself in a fantasy and wonder how you got there.

Constable Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) finds himself to be too perfect; he is rejected by his girlfriend and banished to the small village of Sandford by his police force community. Here he must adjust to rural life. But is rural life all it seems?

Nikolas is becoming suspicious of a series of accidents and his mind is starting to say murder. Can his newfound friend/coworker, PC Danny Butterman (Nick Frost) squelch this tendency of Nicholas' to see murder and everything? Or will we be caught up in necklaces fantasy.

I have only seen the Blu-Ray version of this film so I cannot compare contrast to other versions. You guessed it this presentation has all the standard extra goodies voice over's and additions and whatnots. Naturally they all enhance your viewing pleasure and do not distract from the original presentation. However it is the movie we came to see extra goodies are just icing on the cake so when you make your choice don't forget the cake.
