While I was never enamored by the trailers or spots for Universal’s The World’s End, Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz director Edgar Wright’s new movie starring Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Rosamund Pike, Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine and Eddie Marsan, the reviews have been beyond positive. In fact, our own Evan Dickson raves about the third film in the “Cornetto Trilogy”.
“Where ‘Shaun of the Dead’ was a horror film and ‘Hot Fuzz’ was an action movie, ‘The World’s End’ is a sci-fi adventure that harkens back to ‘Invasion Of the Body Snatchers’ (its emphasis on allegory, particularly relating to the dilemma of its protagonist, also has a bit of a John Carpenter bent),” says Dickson.
“It’s also the most mature film in the trilogy,” before adding that “[it’s] full of laughs.”
