It started well - interesting cutting and good British character acting (which the Brits do so well) but it was way too long and the violence at the end was very childish
Classic British comedy again. Very appealing of course to anyone who liked Shaun of the Dead or Paul. This may be better than those two films?
Brits excel at dark comedy and this is one of the best of the genre. Brilliant, hillarious film; I never get tired of watching it.
Enjoyable, funny, witty, more words in this same vein. Get it you will like it.
This movie was hysterical, Sean Pegg is a genius. Rather then being a the anti hero as he is so often cast in this Sean has written himself a character that is, meticulous, moral and somehow totally loveable and his intellectually challenged side kick is adorable to watch, one of those movies I know I will watch again and again!
Easily the second strongest work by this team after Sean of the Dead. It contains the same magic mix of tribute and satire, but then inserts honest characterization and story. And there's not a moment wasted - compelling from beginning to end..
This film is a really good action movie, It shows the English 'Bobby' really getting into the action. There are some surprises for the viewer, The best car chase I have seen, for a long time, Real tongue in cheek, stuff, Lets hope they make a sequel,
Very strange black comedy, but very compelling at the same time.
Some good parts in the movie and it's obvilously a send up on all the overdone action fils
but what could have been a good comedy was way too long and becomes very boring.
Not quite as good as Shaun of the dead, but very entertaining.
I loved this movie when it first came out and still love it now :-)
Brilliant! Swings from buddy comedy to horror to action, classic lines and scenes throughout. Possibly Timothy Dalton's best role ;)
Good movie if you don't want to think and just want to laugh.
Fantastic. Plays heavily on the old "Only sane man in a world full of morons" gag for much of the laughs, but that's always a reliable premise, and it does it with flair and originality. Much of the film is a set-up to for all the punchlines to come thick and heavy in the final twenty minutes, but it's well worth the wait.
I don't know if it was good, but I thought it was pretty funny
Hugely enjoyable. Running gags all the way through, cliches flying everywhere,and the obligatory shoot out. Just sit back and have a laugh!
Funny as!! Simon Pegg is awesome
If you like silly British humour, then this one's for you. What a fabulously funny film.
Possibly the funniest film that I've ever seen - could watch it repeatedly, has excellent extras (especially the flick book one). It has inspired me to check out the other films by the same actors. You don't need to be interested in cop movies to watch this.
Hilarious! "By the power of Greyskull!" he he he. Not for kids or for the squeamish.
This is one of the best movies I have seen. It is a bit 'over the top' and not too serious but that is what makes it appealing. Loved it Loved it Loved it !!!!!
Very average indeed. I personally don't think Simon Pegg has done anything decent since Spaced.
Surprisingly entertaining and yes, there was a plotline! The final scenes so ridiculous but it cracked me up - very well done.
Found this movie to be a very entertaining send up of all the 'shoot out' movies around. Would recommend it for a tongue-in-cheek laugh.
This movie didn't appeal to us. We didn't find it funny or entertaining at all. Boring.
I should have realised it was a comedy - was not in the mood, so had to turn it off 1/2 way through.
Funny. Because it makes fun of itself and this genre of film. If it were a serious example of the genre it would flop but because its satirical the one liners work.
This movie is awesome. I strongly suggest that if you want a good laugh, watch it.
I was not in the mood for this..after 10 seconds switched off and returned it..perhaps another time but for now a 2/10
very funny love british comedy
Loads of laughs. Loved it.
This turned out to be a delightfully enjoyable film. Unlike other British films, it doesn't stay low-key and has quite an action-packaged final half-hour. Not your average British Cop film!
An entertaining movie though it took me about ten minutes to get comfortable with it. Light, kooky fun.
The actors tried hard but it was a bit too silly for us - we like a movie that's a bit more believable
A slapstick British comedy with schlock-horror! You will lkke this is you are found of British comedy.
May not be to the liking of some: you will like it a lot or hate it. I liked it.
Good film with lots of fuzz.
Started off better than it finished. Good cast. Bit like the Curate's egg.
Simon Pegg is as dry as a cracker and a complete crack up in this riotously funny Britcom Fuzzflick. With a cast of gazillions and from the team that brought us Shaun of the Dead, we're guaranteed a cack or three... Imagine Frank Oz's Stepford Wives have been living in Royson Vasey... Yep, it'd take Pegg's Top Of His Class character Nick Angel to clean up a bit. And he and his loyal and endearingly bumbling but dedicated partner, played by Nick Frost, have quite the time mopping the blood off the floor, and the roads, and the Church Fete to make the sleepy little village of Sandford worthy of it's self aggrandising annual title of "model village," and all whilst on the lookout for a wayward swan. There's a mine of tongue in cheek wit in this film just builds and builds; script, acting, direction and production. The disc itself is packed with extras that are well worth a peek, too. Clealry the whole cast and crew had a blast in the making of, and it shows in the final cut. I enjoyed this film so much, I rushed out to buy a copy. Watch out, spooky sleepy hollow, the Hot Fuzz'll getchya! Riotously recommended.
Not what I expected, but was really enjoyable. Do yourself a favour and watch this film.
Love British comedy they just know how to do it so much better than the yanks. Hilarious film.
If you like "Borat" you'll like this. If this is supposed to be satire or at least funny, then I'm Catherine Zeta Jones. Stupid story, stupid violence. Life's too short to watch abysmal movies like this. Avoid.
Wonderful, goofy English spoof on those ghastly US cop shows. Loved it.
If you like British humour, you'll understand how 'they' don't take themselves seriously and can 'take the mickey' on just about anything. I loved this movie, all the subtleties and in-jokes. Just brilliant. Laughed all the way - neighbours must've wondered how I could laugh when the sound-track was all guns and explosions. You had to be there.
Comedy only as the British can make - I think there is a strong case to ban Americans from making comedies and only have comedy from Britain. Side splitting humour, this will assist if you are feeling low.
I've watched this movie a few times now, and it just gets funnier every time I see it!
It's a silly/dorky comedy, but the british really do have a great sense of humour, you can't help but be entertained.
Will probably watch again soon!
Better than Shaun of the Dead (same actors, same sort of style) and definitely smarter.
Great humour, dry & sometimes dark, but funny
Not quiet as good as Shaun of the Dead but nevertheless entertaining in its own way. The ending is silly rather than inspired. Simon Pegg is good as usual.
Loved this film - original, full of wit, humor and action. They must have had a ball making it - our whole house had stitches watching it! Big Thumbs up!!
(thanks to all the other Quckflix critics that pointed me in the right direction - would have never known about this film with out you!!)
Another excellent movie from the fine folk at Working Title, who also did Shaun of the Dead, Bridget Jones' Diary, and Love Actually, to name but a few. There are moments that seem reminiscent of Shaun of the Dead, but maybe that's just small town syndrome! An interesting storyline that's a great twist on the classic whodunit, as well as a fantastic display of why Brits Do It Better, it would be a crying shame not to see this movie!
Absolutely hilarious! Not for the queasy though - my mother will attest to that!! Thoroughly recommended!
Wierd, wierd, wierd, with some funny bits throw in along the way.
Kind of like Run Fatby Run meets Shawn of the Dead
Loved it! For someone not usually into English humour I found it hilarious. Make sure you check out the blooper reel as well!!!
Very funny in places but a little too silly.
A real suprise and a good laugh!
Amazing, what a twist at the end. entertaining !
What a hoot! A great throw off of English and American cop shows. Some very funny moments.
Another hilarious British comedy. Although considering the number of quality actors and comedians in Hot Fuzz, it almost would have been harder to make a bad movie than a good one. I can't wait for more from Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg, their snappy writing and genuine laughs get me every time. They all seem to be having as much fun making the movie as I was watching it.
Brilliant deadpan performance from the lead. Ace London copper steps on too many toes and gets sent to a tiny village where his pedantic ways conflict with the "softly softly" country approach until he uncovers the village's darker secrets. This is basically a cop show spoof, but the lead plays it dead straight. Quite funny in bits, amusing through most of it and keeps you entertained for its near 2 hour length. Probably a bit better than just a 3.
Very funny, well made film with laugh out loud moments. Try to find Cate Blanchett in an uncredited cameo!
Can't believe that I watched this move but I loved it. In fact we watched it twice!
Took a while to get into but it was worth watching in the end.
it isn't funny, its just very corny. i hope i don't see any more of this type.
Borrowed mainly for hubby but much better than I expected. Good humour and my husband loved action scenes.
my brother and i had a bet for how long my father would get through this movie before switching it off for all the violence and swearing as he is not big on either of these things. i bet 15 minutes, my brother was 25 minutes. My father got all the way through the film and loved it all.
Speaks for itself...
...If you like any other movie like Shaun of the dead or run, fatboy run - you will love this hilarious psudo-horror flic.
Very entertaining. Very hard to match their previous epic "Sean of the Dead". Some very hilarious moments.
Absolutly F---ing Brilliant!!!! Even better than Shawn of the Dead!!!!!!
Can't wait to see more from these guys!!!!!!
I hated this movie. I loved Sean of the Dead but was greatly disappointed by this one.
Unlike most people I was a little let down by this movie. I think the best part is what you see in the trailer. It tries to mix comedy and action thriller and ends up doing one or the other rather averagely. I don’t know I just don’t like it when a movie changes genre half way through. Don’t want to come across as a grouch but it didn’t live up to what I was expecting.
An absolute hoot. Plot revolves around an over-achieving London cop sent to the boonies for making the rest of the force look bad. Simon Pegg is excellent.
Good fun. I didn't think I was going to like this one, but I finally gave up and enjoyed it for what it is when the village mayhem started.
Excellent movie very funny
great comedy lots of laughs in this movie
Definitely worth a watch. Kept me laughing, interesting story.
Funniest movie, bit of swearing & blood and gust though, not really my thing, but really good movie overall
A bit of fun. Some great old time British actors-Edward Woodward, Billie Whitelaw and some current greats-Bill Nighy and Jim Broadbent are in it. I didn't find it side splittingly funny but I enjoyed it, though it's not as good as Shaun of the Dead.
I thought it started off ok and a bit funny but it soon went down hill from there. A load of Hollywood rubbish comes to a quiet English village. Not even worth one star.
I know it was a send up, but I really thought it was rubbish.
This is excellent. Very funny, not at all what I expected. Well worth seeing.
Another movie that i just had to keep watching till the end to find out what happened but i can't say that i really enjoyed it.
The movie takes a sudden change in direction about half way through but somehow the consistent humour holds the whole thing together, even when the plot seems to be heading down the gurgler.
what a great little film a good laugh plenty of acion a twist at the end what more could you want Excellent British film
Very funny! Laugh out loud type of movie!
well worth the watch. not at all what i expected, which was fantastic.
do yourself a favour and watch this one.
Thoroughly enjoyed this movie, would highly recommend.
A better title would have been HOT FIZZLE! Enough said!
Loved this movie. Lovely dry very very funny humour - taking off numerous cop shows and who dunnits - and what a cast! Simon is wonderful with his dead pan face and such a supporting cast - wow.
Well worth watching
Top movie, lotsa laughs and action, great sendup of the British Police, smalltown life and all those buddy movies.
Unexpectedly funny, though a bit gruesome.
Was slow to start, even with a few of the best one-liners ever, but the second half of the movie is painfully funny!!!
Good story line and easy to watch
Because Quickflix reserve the right to edit and/or amend submitted reviews, a customer cannot trust that a review(?) they read is the work of another customer. A pity really as it would have otherwise been a useful tool
HOT FIZ. This movie started out like a funny well paced English comedy...anf then Quentin Tarantino came in and made it look like they just had to use more bullets, guns and effects.
A bit slow in the beginning and slightly oddball but still funny.
Some laughs but not worth sitting through the whole movie for. Very mundane and dissappointing.
Not what I expexted,but still watched it...
My Hubby and I thought this was an English version of an American Action Comedy - we thought it was so stupid that it was funny and we could not stop laughing - we have recommended to friends though. A good laugh.
I am not sure what I was expecting but it certainly was not this load of UTTER RUBBISH
The team that has brought us such classics as Black Books and Spaced on the small screen, gave us Shaun of the Dead and now Hot Fuzz on the big screen. Once again they deliver with insightful and tounge-in-cheek fun which has you laughing out loud. As usual you will find subtle references to other movies while poking fun at the Hollywood script 'machine'. Brilliant! I can't wait for the next installment.
Must admit to not partaking of this film but the family thoroughly enjoyed it, really "cracked" them up, they were in fits of laughter for a great deal of the movie I was informed.
Fantastic movie, if you don't mind a little graphic violence. I loved the camerawork especially.
Enjoyable but not all that wonderful.
I could watch this one every day and still laugh out loud right through. Top-notch cast with brilliant performances.
Really enjoyed the humour in this movie. It was a little slow to start, but once started, it's excellent. Some classic one-liners. Loved it.
great movie, very funny & light hearted
Funnier than I thought it would be.
Non typical cop movie, very funny with a look at small town England in a new light. Well worth a look!
Excellent show with lots of laughs. Very entertaining.
Hilarious. If you like your humour a little black, this is the movie for you.
I found this movie both funny and entertaining. I would reccomend this to anyone that needs a good laugh.
Funny and action, with a few horror picstures thrown in for good measure. Something different and worth watching!
hong kong style funny cop movie transferred to england!
Loved this movie. The slap-stick humour reminiscent of Shaun of the Dead. If you want a laugh this is the movie for you.
We found this movie to be a great piece of entertainment. It was very funny in places and just the right mix of intrigue with lots of gun play mixed in with good one liners. All up it was a movie to sit down and enjoy with friends and family and enjoy a great night in.
I like British comedy, but did not find this movie humourous. Slow and boring to start with and did not get much better until the action scenes at the end. Not worth watching again.
Hilarious spoof of every cop show you ever saw from The Bill to Die Hard.Well done.
Not my cup of tea to honest ...
Sometimes funny, sometimes serious, really unusual movie but very good.
Not bad. Wouldn't watch it again though.
It was a Very good movie, and i enjoyed it, it reminded me of "Shawn Of The Dead"
4/5 Good Movie
What a great laugh!!! Quirky and fun!!
If Simon Pegg or Nicholas Frost are in it you're gonna laugh.There is nothing negative here. It's smart and funny and silly. It's a great way to spend 90 minutes. Really, really, really, really good.
Another great brirish drama , if you like trainspotting, acid house, thefull monty or brassed off . You will love this movie , a fast paced thrill a minute movie and a great story line . rent it now !!
Seemed very promising at the start, but very quickly became tiresome. An over-the-top slapstick style was established firmly at the start then seemed to have nowhere else to go. It lacked the subtlety and nuance we'd normally expect from British comedy.
The movie may start off a little dull, but the finale is definitely worth sticking around for! If you're an action movie fan, the finale hits just about every action movie cliche there is.
Interesting movie, effects come across as less than fake. Predictable.
Sorry I did not enjoy that at all. However, my husband, brother in law and nephew did, so I just supplied nibbles and drinks.
Very funny a cross between heart beat and bad boys great comedy action if you liked their style in S. of the Dead you will really love this one. The last 25 minutes is out of control with action. Great extras as well.
A little slow to begin but eventually action picked up.A little gory in some scenes
This movie is a crack!! I laughed all the way through. The politically incorrect female cop is the best!
Excellent. Very Funny and a nice change from Hollywood humour.
Lots of fun - some laugh-out-loud moments. I may have been expecting too much of this one, but still well worth watching.
I watched this movie on the recommendation of my children ( both over 20), but really I can't say I enjoyed it. There is some funny moments, but the storyline is too ridiculous.
Worth watching. Thoroughly enjoyed it
Another highly entertaining and hilarious movie from some comic masters. Terrific cast too.
Fantastic 'fish out of water' comedy that both celebrates and subverts action movie cliches. The humour is dry but should appeal to most Australians, especially those familiar with the various action/buddy cop movies it pays tribute to. However, the highlights are the bonus materials - particularly 'Hot funk' (made for TV, no swearing), the director's cut trailer, and the options during the film, such as 'fuzz facts' and commentaries . A must see.
This I enjoyed immensely. Well worth the effort
started off okay for about the first 20 minutes, but then got stupid and i was thoroughly bored. didn't even bother to watch the ending, by the time they get to the shoot out in town i had had enough.
Not what I had expected, but better once I understood it was a very clever take-off. Enjoyable, but need a particular sense of humour to fully appreciate.
hilarious spoof with a kick
This movie (Hot Fuzz) was definately not worth the effort
Excellent movie - hilarous homage to both "The Bill" and just about every action movie cliche to come out of Hollywood in the last 15 years. High recommended.
Excellent comedy but flat in parts while the story caught up with the action - very good filmic references
I really enjoyed this one. Don't know what I was expecting this movie to be, but I was quite suprised with the way it played out. There are some really gresome effects in this flic, which is odd for a comedy. Overall - funny, clever and thouroughly entertaining.
Refreshing comedy, gotta love an old lady with a gun!
I didn't find it as funny as Sean of the Dead (nor as gorey thank God), but I do like this comedy duo. Worth a watch.
dont expect to much and enjoy the movie
This movie is hilarious. Highly recommend.
certainly a different look at a policeman,once you realised it was a comedy i found it to be quite good
This was a bit of light laughs. Better than some, not as good as others. The bloopers section was pretty funny
This started off slow, got a tiny BIT better, then lapsed into a ridiculously long shoot-em-up that really lost me long before the lame ending. I found it an utter waste of time.
Lots of 'one liners'. Must listen carefully to catch them all.
Tung in cheek Funny Movie
Really funny, some great one liners. At times it appeared the editor had something to prove with the amount of scene changes, but a great laugh...
Didn't enjoy it. Expected better of a British comedy than American slapstick.
Not as good as Shaun of the Dead, but still amusing - I still love those guys.
Slightly too long though.
Hard to follow Sean of The Dead, but the team that brought us that classic have an interesting spin on Police work in a movie with some interesting cameos.
It was worth a few laughs and the DVD extras were really, really funny stuff!
I probably expected more after Sean of the Dead or I would have rated it higher.
Very British and very funny. It loses the plot a little bit about 2/3 of the way through, but comes back to form with a fine shoot out!
you need to understand our english humour to brighten your day
Started off okay and i thought this is something different but then the plot took a dowturn and became farsical and not the norm for British comedy with very little to laugh at, disappointing to say the least.
a few laughs.
way way way too long.
waste of time
Something different, we liked it.
Sick English humour. If you're into it, you'll get a few laugh-out-loud moments from this one.
Quite good fun in parts but overall very silly - would suit the teenage market
Very good, funny, excellent English comedy with a touch of drama and adventure along the way!!
hilarious movie, these two from shaun of the dead are brillant together
I liked it; intentionally over the top and never takes itself too seriously. Good light-hearted action flick.
be carefull or you'l piss your pants laughing
funniest buddy/cop film i,ve seen for ages, great to see some old english talent being put to good use here, especially billie whitelaw whom i fondly remember from the original omen (she was the evil nanny mrs baylock).
the humour between the two lead actors is terrific + i love the way the film pays homage to some earlier films like dirty harry and some of sergio leone,s westerns, the gore is first class that scene below the church tower is a classic, and the final shoot-out is fantastic. if you like funny fast action films you,ll love this one.
TIP. if you click on the "fuzz-facts" icon on the bonus features screen, the movie will play with interesting behind the scenes facts running at the bottom of your screen.
This overly long film could have been brilliant. The lines blurred between 'black comedy' and a send up of the American 'shoot-em-up, blow-em-up' movies. One or the other would have sufficed. It became too OTT for me. Better luck next time.
This movie is just as awesome as Shawn of the Dead. It is a must for any collection!!
This one was really different! A terrific mix of what the Brits do best - black humour and who done its!
This one grows on you, gradually getting better as the story unfolds, with punch lines hitting you from jokes set up earlier. When it was suggested an appreciation of English humour was needed was expecting (and hoping for the warped comedy of Big Train or League of Gentleman) but it's more subtle along the lines of Sean of the Dead.
Definitely different to what I expected. Good for a laugh in places - it's not Emmy Award winning entertainment but nice light viewing.
Very entertaining film - some great movie references - and even a cameo from Cate Blanchett!
Very good.A bit gory in parts so be careful with the kids but on the whole very entertaining.
This movie was well acted, directed and filmed and is NOT to be taken seriously at any time! You have to appreciate it's unique sense of humour. The movie started and finished well but got a bit slow in the middle.
I guess comedy is a personal thing, but this was just boring.
Very funny, great twists, far better than I thought it would be. Look forward to seeing more of these guys
Loved it. Total nonsense of course but so funny.
Loved it - good twists at the end leaves you wondering who did it
A funny action/cop movie. Could have been shorter though.
Everything that happens in this movie is just stupid, funny yes. But eventually you'll get bored of the stupidity and want to turn it off
Liked the way it used scenes from well known movies throughout - quite amusing.
Didnt think it was very good and didnt bother watching the end.
Well worth while. Some very good moments.
Awesome - we haven't laughed so hard in ages
One of the best dvds released this year. Very witty, entertaining and funny!!!
fantastic movie, complete take off but excellent
Finally a film which makes fun of every action film cliche possible.
Big thumbs up for using the Equalizer, James Bond and Belloq (Raiders of the Lost Ark) in a single film!
Not as good as Shaun of the Dead
Hardly raised a smile let alone a laugh.
Predictable and silly, but not to be missed. Many clever one-liners that you'll miss if you blink. Worth watching just for the the out-takes in the special features!
Good for a laugh, and a who done it muder mystery!
I laughed from start to almost finish. A bit near the end of the story where I thought it had gone haywire, but then it turned around and was the biggest laugh my husband and I had had in ages. Yes, yes, yes, a GREAT movie.
Has its moments - a bit 1 dimensional
Comedy as only the Poms can do, Very Very Funny.
Absolutely loved it- police spoof with many laugh out loud moments. Gag reel is a hoot too.
I rented this movie expecting a comedy, but there's a dark side to the movie too. I thoroughly enjoyed it and highly recommend it.
Laughed till I cried. This movie is awesome!
I don't think this was as good as Shaun of the Dead. I did enjoy the ending the best. Lots of blood etc and violence.
Thoroughly entertaining. Excellent twists and turns. Make sure you watch the TV version in extras.
Brilliant humor and entertaining characters. I'm from America and "Angel" reminded me of Barney Fife, and overdiligent small town police officer parodied in a 60's sitcom.
A London police officer is transferred to a quiet village in England for no other reason than he is showing up the rest of the force because of his dedication to his job and his excellent track record. In his new job he finds it hard to relax his strict views on how the law should be administered to a village where nothing ever happens and this is were the fun begins.While not a comedy for the faint of heart, this is a very funny movie and shows once again how the English are truly masters of comedy.
Light hearted and funny. Worth a watch.
Not as good as Shaun of the Dead. A little slow but picked up really well towards the end. Still a good watch though.
Didn't really understand it all. Some may find it Ok but I didn't
Occasional laughs deteriorating in an overlong movie to boredom needs at least 30min edited out -
Great English comedy. Bazaar but believable and totally mad. Laugh a minute if you appreciate English humour.
A great tongue in cheek action flick with very clever direction and sizzling English witt.
Simon Pegg plays an outstanding role as the "top cop" in London who is an embarrasment to his superiors because he has such a fantastic record and commendations that he gets transferred to a small country town where he proceeds to upset the locals. A typically great British comedy well worth the watch
Great English comedy.Shows the yanks how to do it. All original not a copy from some other country
PC Nick Angel, the best MET Policeman in London is send to Sandford, a quite, quaint sleepy village, on promotion, against his wishes. Sandford holds a terrible secret that Sgt Angel and his offsider, Dave stumble upon, implicating the key players of the town in murder and plenty of them. Very gory movie but also some laughs along the way.
funny as hell. better than Sean Dead!
A brilliant comedic British movie with a sort of horror storyline. You have to see this!
