The World’s End: a review (spoilers possible)

This is the third installment in the Cornetto trilogy (Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz rounding out the three). As such we have Simon Pegg and Nick Frost starring, and Edgar Wright directing.

I liked it. However, I do have to warn you the viewer that if you’re looking for an exact rehash of the earlier films, forget about it. It’s a lot darker and introspective than they are, although the supernatural and comedic elements are still in fine form. Overall, it’s a great story with a lot of in-gags for the die hards.

Pegg plays Gary King, a down on his luck guy pushing 40 who wants to get his old gang of friends back together for an epic pub crawl. Nick Frost actually plays the straight man here (Andy Knightley), not really giving Gary much of a chance because of some prior bad blood. Soon enough some epic craziness ensues as per usual, and the boys come together because that’s just how things are meant to be.

Go enjoy it. It’s worthy.
