    Hot Fuzz is utter perfection. It's one of those films I watch annually just because I want a good time. This is by far my favourite comedy and my favourite British film. Acting is solid, Simon Pegg plays a serious policeman officer (see what I did there?) who is obsessed with his job. Nick Frost plays the foolish policeman who learns from Pegg's character. Both actors have an insatiable amount of chemistry! Their banter, the sheer timing of their lines...they are just so good together. The rest of the supporting cast are excellent as well, particularly Broadbent and Dalton. The script is the star of the film, I practically know it off by heart. Full of British wit, it consistently makes me laugh with every viewing. The laughs don't stop there, director Edgar Wright is the king of visual comedy and his flair here enhances the comedic moments even more. The action is intense with some use of gore. The plot itself is involving and plays out like a murder mystery. The setting of Gloucestershire's countryside is idyllic and contrasts with the chaos in London at the start. The characters themselves are memorable. The sound editing is solid...I could go on and on and on...and on! I love this film, adore it even. It does indeed get the rare perfect rating.
