ROBOTS, BLANKS AND SHELLS

4 out of 5 stars

Finally, the Cornetto trilogy comes to an end!

Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead made cop movies and zombie movies hilarious and now, The World’s End does the same to science fiction movies.

Gary King (Pegg), an alcoholic, resolves to track down his friends from high school to complete their epic pub crawl of 12 pubs back in their hometown of Newton Haven. Halfway through their pub crawl, they realize something is off about their town and set their way to make things right and leave the town in one piece and at the same time, drink a pint at each pub to complete their journey.

To me, the bromance of Pegg and Frost have always been the core of these films and it is proven here again. It is also fresh to see Martin Freeman not being so serious and W.T.F.-ing all the time. The way these guys smash aliens and fight them makes it very entertaining. Aliens have never been destroyed that comically before, right? I say, British humour is in a class of its own.
