I know it's a satire, but I'll be damned if this isn't one of the best cop dramas to ever grace the face of the earth. It's funny, obviously. Not as laugh-out-loud funny as the other two Cornetto Trilogy films, but it's still very clever. However, the mysteries within this story go through so many twists and turns, and they're all so brilliantly set up and executed that I have no trouble believing "Hot Fuzz" could appeal and be completely loved by people who aren't in the slightest bit interested in this style of comedy. I think it works best as a satirical comedy, but the drama and action are great all on their own. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are excellent as always, and the supporting cast is filled with standouts as well. And Edgar Wright's signature flare is as appreciated here as ever. I thought there were moments where the cutting got too frantic and the stylized transitions became distracting, but it didn't tarnish my overall experience with the film, and I can't imagine any of it working anywhere near as well as it did if Wright wasn't at the helm. On paper, "Hot Fuzz" might seem like a much less zany film than the other two Cornetto Trilogy instalments, but I'm happy to report how much so that isn't the case. It's a difficult film to adequately describe without spoiling, so I'll just ask that I'm trusted when I say that fans of Wright, Pegg, Frost and either cop dramas or witty comedies will have plenty to love here, and I doubt anyone will be disappointed.
