A literate deconstruction of action movie tropes, while also being intelligent enough to actually offer a passable genre movie in the process.

Wright understands how to perfectly balance action, comedy, drama, and suspense, and it pays off.

It's a perfect spoof of the once popular action genre, that's highlighted by the chemistry of Pegg and Frost.

Manages to find humor not just in the mundane existence of a small town but also in the overblown nature of action films. And, it works as an action movie on its own.

Hot Fuzz, Edgar Wright's follow-up to his extremely popular zombie satire Shaun of the Dead (2004), improves on the latter's strong points in every conceivable way while drastically tightening up its weakest elements.

Hot Fuzz is a fresh upper, handily topping Wright and Pegg's 2004 cult zombie flick in pure manic energy alone.

From paying homage to Michael Bay's camera motions to kicking an old lady square in the kisser, this film holds nothing back and fires away with tons of laughs.

The makers of Shaun of the Dead have done it again. This time they have combined a classic cop-buddy movie with a quaint town in England, and yes, laughs definitely ensue.
August 7, 2008
It's overlong and not always precisely on target but neither self-congratulating nor condescending -- and a fine, funny contribution to English-American mutual amusement besides.

Bad Boys meets Shaun of the Dead.

... lives up to expectations even if it can't exceed the hype.
October 5, 2007
Yet another excellent mélange of movie genres from Britain's team of Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost.

It's a movie that is literally, painfully funny, insofar as I occasionally laughed so hard that I thought my chest was about to collapse.
