With the usual hype generated by fast and clever commercials, you'll probaly make the same mistake I did with regards to this film, which is to give it a viewing. The ads were played mostly on IFC , with a indie bent. Don't be fooled. This a complete waist of time, not good enough for a large studio, let alone a small one. Predictable and boring, you'll see two scenes ahead before it even happens.Your time would be beter spent channel surfing, at least then you'll be mildly surprized by what comes next.
Following the minor success of "Shawn of the Dead". The Director was givin' more money and time for his next project. Hot Fuzz is the resulting film, a very funny and clever tale on the warnings of achieving a perfect society, told by way of the buddy cop film. This film may take you several watchings to catch all the sly references, but be warned, there are a couple of very horrific deaths and a constant flow of cussing. So not for the young, but a joy those who enjoy a smart comedy.
