Movie Info

Three residents of a 1950s-era U.K. town experience apocalyptic events that transport them 50 years into the future, where they encounter a trio of time travelers who inform them that their entire lives were a work of fiction created by a popular comedy troupe called The League of Gentlemen. Saucy German Herr Lipp (Steve Pemberton), psychotic butcher Hilary Briss (Mark Gatiss), and unassuming businessman Geoff Tipps (Reece Shearsmith) were fleeing fireballs in fictional Royston Vasey when they

With an embarrassment of comedy riches, Gatiss & Co will still leave some fans feeling disappointed.

Inventive, twisted and frequently hilarious, this is an enjoyable comedy that will appeal to both fans and newcomers to the series

Thankfully, not only have the League pulled it off magnificently, but they have remembered the most important thing of all -- how to be very, very funny indeed.

Audience Reviews for The League of Gentlemen's Apocalypse

Even though i've never seen the TV series or had ever heard of it until now, it was actually quite funny. It might take you a while to get what's going on in the film but it's very witty and decently made considering its budget. The League of Gentlemen's Apocalypse is stupid, disturbing and weird but at the same time it will suprise you in a good way.

This one is for hard core fans only really. It?s very self-indulgent by the League of Gentlemen but it?s also very original and quite brilliant. It keeps its well balanced blend of surreal comedy and horror and it succeeds where most film versions of TV series fail. That said, for me it did go off on a bit of a tangent and I was disappointed by a lack of screen time my favourite characters got. Still, all in all a good film!

A worthy big screen outing for Royston Vasey with lots for the fans to enjoy but perhaps lacking the darkness of the TV series.

It's not the measure of the first two series, but better than the third. And it's totally f***ed up in a rather inspired way! It almost reminded me of Time Bandits in places, which is no bad thing.
