The World's End Reviews

Simon Pegg, both as writer and star of the film, understands fully how to inhabit the world of the perennial adolescent, narcissistic to a pathological degree and blind to the damage he wreaks.

Where Shaun Of The Dead was inspired, this is comfortingly repetitive. But hey, isn't that the main attraction of any pub?

The World's End is pretty blasted funny and a fine finale to director/cowriter Edgar Wright and star/cowriter Simon Pegg's so-called 'Cornetto Trilogy.'

It is a more mature piece of work, which seems a peculiar way to label a zippy comedy about drinking beer and outrunning the apocalypse.
June 14, 2016
[The World's End] soon turns from this not-quite-nostalgic focus to one more like Pegg and Edgar Wright's first two Cornetto movies, which is to say, a melding of well-known genres in order to spoof them.

The World's End is not only the season's funniest movie but also its best action thriller, its best addiction drama, and its best movie about the apocalypse.
June 14, 2016
The World's End marks the third part of Pegg and Wright's self-described "Cornetto trilogy." It's an appropriate moniker. With this final film they've slowed down a bit, grown up a lot. And saved the richest bite until last.

If you're looking to laugh your butt quite literally off of your body and leave with some food for thought, then The World's End may just be the tastiest flavor of the Cornetto Trilogy yet.
June 14, 2016
The World's End, in its frequent oscillations of tone, rides toward a logical end-point that makes for the simultaneous fulfillment and subversion of expectations.

This is, apparently, how the world ends. Not with a whimper, but a laugh.

June 14, 2016
The thinness of the plot -- as opposed to the sturdy themes -- and sitcom-y snap of the dialogue only tire towards the end.

June 14, 2016
here's an engaging chemistry between the five boozers, while the surprise cameos, early 1990s indie soundtrack, zany violence and visual effects add to a self-aware, matey romp that slips down a treat.

A heady, industrial-sized vat of Wright's unique, morish humour.

June 14, 2016
Until it bogs down in multiple endings that could have been trimmed or even dropped, it operates as a surprisingly piercing metaphor for everyone's central fear while facing middle age, that of being replaced.
June 14, 2016
The barrelling fun and fizzy invention of the film-making is unstoppable. Calling last orders on a great trilogy, this is one of the most entertaining British films of the year, so far.
April 17, 2016
While "The World's End" might be a rousing success in the canon of many other inferior filmmakers, for Edgar Wright it's a step down.

A full package of entertainment.

Pegg gives arguably his best performance in the three films, and his chemistry with Frost is unbeatable.

August 18, 2014
While it also suffers from a slow start and stretched premise, the charm of its stars getting wasted and debunking an intergalactic conspiracy goes a long way.

Maybe it is time to move on from the genre mash-up, but this is a thundering way to go out.
