Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent comedy Aug. 5 2007
Format:DVD
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.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Buddy Cop Action at it's best! Oct. 31 2007
Format:HD DVD
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

4.0 out of 5 stars Charmingly warped Feb. 15 2008
By Burchy
Format:DVD
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!".

Nicholas Angel is the metropolitan polices best and most commended officer. In fact he is so good that the whole of the met wants rid of him as he is showing everyone else up. The solution is that he is transferred to a quiet colloquial village. However, once there, Angel gets a bit than he bargained for as he discovers that this village has a very high number of freak accidents. Are these gruesome deaths just mere coincidence or is there something more sinister afoot.

Hot Fuzz is the much anticipated follow up to Shaun of the Dead. Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright collaborate again to bring us a movie that is entertaining and wickedly funny. Hot Fuzz is full of the abstract and dark humour that we have come to expect from this pairing and unlike other British teams who have had a major hit Stateside it is not peopled with big US box office draws. It's success is due to a witty script and good performances (although it does have it share of stars - the cast list reads like a who's who in British Comedy). The only minor criticisms I would have would be that at times the humour unlike Shaun of the dead the taken to it's basest level and the running time is little bit overlong (comedies should just not be much more than 90 mins - it gets a bit dull after awhile).

All in all Hot Fuzz is a laugh out loud comedy gem with another brilliantly oafish performance by Nick Frost.

This movie is as funny as they get. The DVD version was great, and now watching it on HD DVD, it looks even better by far. I love 1080p.
Great action/drama/comedy for anybody's HD DVD collection.

By Amazon Customer HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Director Edgar Wright and star Simon Pegg have proven that lightning can strike twice with their 2007 comedy "Hot Fuzz." As was the case with "Shaun of the Dead," they are following in the grand tradition of Gene Wilder and Mel Brooks in "Young Frankenstein" by embracing the genre they are spoofing and taking everything that happens dead seriously, which is what makes it hysterical. Plus, once again Pegg and his sidekick Nick Frost have created characters that have heart, so that we care about them as well as laughing at their antics (of everything that happened in "Shaun of the Dead" the part I remember most is Shaun being upset over the fate of his mother). So when we get to the final act of "Hot Fuzz" and the film actually slips into an even higher gear, we get to root them on all that harder.

This time around Pegg is Sergeant Nicholas Angel, a guy who is no bumbling Inspector Closseau. In fact, Sergeant Angel is so competent that his bosses want to get rid of him because he is making everybody else in the police service look bad. So Angel is banished to Sanford, a perfect little English village supposedly devoid of crime. Of course Angel finds cause to arrest just about everybody he runs into, only to be informed by his new boss, Inspector Frank Butterman (Jim Broadbent), that they look at things differently in Sanford. Everybody is town speaks of "the Greater Good," and it seems that we are being set up for your standard story about a hard core true believer learning that the spirit of the law is as important as the letter of the law. Angel is partnered with PC Danny Butterman (Nick Frost), and we have the requisite pair for the buddy part of the picture and it looks like all of the pieces are in place.
