I think Simon Pegg is awesome but this just shoved him higher on the awesome list.
I suppose that I am the last person to watch this movie but my favorite scenes are the various shoot out locations! It was great to see Olivia Colman in something other than Doctor Who and Broadchurch. We can't forget Timothy Dalton (James Bond), Bill Nighy (Harry Potter 7, Total Recall (2012)), Martin Freeman (The Hobbit, Sherlock), Jim Broadbent (Horace Slughorn Harry Potter 6, 7, 8) , and David Bradley (Argus Filch Harry Potter series)!
The premise is entertaining, the dialogue believable and the comedy is well, okay it is Simon Pegg, brilliantly funny.
And if that isn't enough, the twist at the very end is just that, a twist. I should have guessed that the underwater mine would play a greater role later. I mean honestly, if you have a gun on a gun rack in scene 5 you better use it later! Great use!
If you haven't seen Hot Fuzz yet ... find it and watch! This movie is now on my need to own it list!
