Wright & Pegg continue making the sort of films that the 12-year-old versions of themselves probably always dreamed of being a part of; that sense of joy and practically disbelief that they actually get to do this for a living is right up there on-screen.
I pretty much unreservedly loved The World's End, whose compact dramatic structure and steady flow of good jokes puts most mainstream American comedies-too often loosely bundled collections of hit-or-miss sketches-to shame.
It's a little too close to "Shaun of the Dead" (and to Wright's "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World") in its structure and gags, and while there are plenty of laughs, you wish they were bigger ones, particularly in the beginning.
This is a tighter, smarter film than either 'Shaun of the Dead' or 'Hot Fuzz', and buried beneath all the blue-goo aliens and terrible punning is a heartfelt meditation on the perils and pleasures of nostalgia.
