Audience Reviews for The World's End

  • Aug 21, 2016
    The final chapter of the Cornetto trilogy feels and looks a lot like Shaun of the Dead a couple of times. While it starts out like another Hangover episode, the twist of an alien conspiracy ends in a (blue) bloody slaughter in English pubs. That's pretty exciting and fun, the fights are wonderfully choreographed and the effects pretty convincing. The cast and the humor work too. Only the ending is surprisingly dark but not without optimism. But it makes you wish a fourth entry of Wright and Pegg reuniting.

    Not the best of the unofficial corner to trilogy but it is still one god damn good film, with smart snappy writing, great action sequences and great performances by Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Hilarious from start to finish. Watch it a second time and you will hear more jokes which you didn't hear the first time. I give this film 9/10.

    Sometimes funny and inventive, but it's ultimately a sweary/bloody/long episode of David Tennant-era Doctor Who, right down to the "humans aren't perfect" / bonfire-myth ending.

    Estranged friends begrudgingly reunite at behest of former leader-cum-has-been for epic bar crawl. Greasy, leather-clad Simon Pegg really sells the once-cool-badass-vibe-now-tinged-with-glory-days-delusion. The rest of the ragtag quintet are charming, especially handsome/nerdy Martin Freeman and blustery Nick Frost as straight men. When the robot plot starts though, the movie devolves from a hilarious and bittersweet story about friends growing up and apart, to a merely average sci-fi spectacle.
