JoBlo Raves Over "Hot Fuzz"Danny Boyle's "Sunshine" and Zack Snyder's "300" are atop my wish list, but tucked in at #3 is Edgar Wright's "Hot Fuzz." One of JoBlo's lieutenants recently saw the flick, and he can't stop raving.
I only skimmed through the piece, but this particular passage caught my eye: "HOT FUZZ is an action movie with explosions, car chases and some bad ass fight sequences. It?s a comedy with a superb script that includes swans, ketchup and stuffed monkeys. It?s also a horror film with a psycho killer on the loose. Which makes for a surprisingly ample amount of gore? seriously, they don?t skimp on the red stuff."
So it's not just a cop comedy/satire, but a big fat genre stew, too. Man oh man do I love the Wright / Frost / Pegg team. If this thing's even half as good as "Shaun of the Dead" and "Spaced," then it's gonna be better than 75% of this year's comedies. (It opens on April 20th.)
