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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.)
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
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.Read more ›
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 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. Read morePublished 4 months ago by The Movie Guy
