  • WHAT I LIKED: The band is back together with Nick Frost, Simon Pegg (who's "chemistry" is magnetic) and genious Edgar Wright re-uniting after the brilliant 'Shaun of the Dead.' On the most part, they deliver again too, as this definitely works as a satire of the buddy-cop movie, but it also succeeds in standing on its own in that regard. That's because 'Hot fuzz' parodies by off-the-wall exaggeration, and thus brings in high levels of excitement, tension and improved action that Edgar Wright directs impecably.
    WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: This more over-the-top approach to satire is entertaining, but it looses the subtle intellegence of its predeccessor, and feels more self-contained and over-reliant on the madness as a result.
    VERDICT: It may not be as good as 'Shaun of the Dead,' but 'Hot Fuzz' is without a doubt an entertaining comedy with plenty of great action and off-the-wall moments.
