This is a great comedy. It has that fun quirky indie feel to it with none of the low budget drippy music let down. Simon Pegg plays Nicholas Angel. Angel is London's greatest policeman. In fact he is too good and makes the rest of the force look bad. They promote him and railroad him out to Sanford, a village which constantly wins "Village of the Year" awards. They have a low crime rate, primarily because the police don't arrest anyone, a British version of Mayberry. This puts Angel at odds with everyone in town, whom remain polite as he seemingly busts everyone in the peaceful village. The comedy is greater good. While on duty and sitting in a pub with fellow policemen, they talk about firearms.

Andie: "Everyone in town and their mum owns a gun."
Angel: "Such as who?"
Andie: "Farmers own guns."
Angel: "And who else?"
Andie: "And their mums."

Nick Frost plays PC Danny Butterman who becomes Angel's sidekick. He loves police movies and admires Angel. Together they become a crime fighting duo in a village that has a secret.

F-bomb, no sex, fake nudity. some blood and gore.

Great British comedy. If you like Shaun of the Dead and related movie writing this is your cup of tea :) It's funny but I didn't remember the graphic murder scenes which made my mother freak out hilariously... woops!

One of my absolutely favourite films! I laugh every single time and I've watched it more than a dozen times!! This blu-ray has an exceptionally crisp picture (as it should!) and there are a lot of special features! Great buy!

Yes, definitely a must see movie if you like quirky spoofs on cops, England, Agatha Christie etc. The Angel character is an OCD guy that no one likes but in this English village, Batman finds his Robin. The coven thing was really funny. Good cast and acting. Well done!

this movie took a while to get into, very offbeat to say the least but any fan of simon pegg (run fat boy run, star trek, shaun of the dead) should definitely get this. recommended

My favorite movie in the genre - A must have!!!

To me everything in this movie is so epic - need to watch in English but the French translation is well dubbed! Enjoy!!!

Other thoughts: Shawn of the Dead sucks in comparison - its that good!

The movie is excellent beyond any expectations and with Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Edgar Wright involved there really isn't anything else needed to gauge how good this movie will be especially since it is a part of the Cornetto trilogy (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, World's End)

Down to the Blu-Ray the Picture Quality and Audio Quality is beyond reproach this is stellar! The special features? not more can be wished from it it's excellent

The Steelbook? stunning! one of the best
