Director Edgar Wright, and lead actors Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are back for the third installment of their comedies trilogy, The World’s End. If you are a fan of the previous British comedies, like myself, you will more than enjoy this well-written and terrifically acted tale. Like Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz before it, this story is headed by the lovably comic Simon Pegg and exceedingly hilarious Nick Frost, along with a fantastic accompanying cast of Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, Eddie Marsan and Rosamund Pike.
The plot follows Gary King (Simon Pegg) as he reunites “the boys” to try and redeem their teenage failure of conquering “The Golden Mile,” a 12-bar pub crawl through their hometown of Lechtworth, New Haven. As they struggle to merge their past and present, they realize much more has happened to their old town then they initially realized. With an ending I would have never predicted, I am nonetheless beyond happy with the outcome and will be adding this movie to my collection upon its release. A definite recommendation for both this and the previous two movies of the trilogy to anyone who enjoys the occasional dry, British humor.
