ITEM#: 10972436Pop culture sponges Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg, and Nick Frost team up again for HOT FUZZ, their follow-up to the surprise hit movie SHAUN OF THE DEAD. HOT FUZZ follows a near-identical formula to its predecessor, simply replacing the various homages to horror movies by heaping on the adulation for action flicks such as POINT BREAK and BAD BOYS II (both of which are referenced throughout). The plot finds outstanding London-based police officer Nicholas Angel (Pegg) transplanted to a rural English village. On arrival, Angel teams up with the oaf-like PC Danny Butterman (Frost) and together they investigate a series of mysterious murders, all of which are classed as "accidents" by the increasingly strange townsfolk. Director Wright combines gory set-pieces with traditional action-movie staples: mustachioed detectives in sunglasses, corny one-liners, rapid machine-gun fire, and blood-spattered fight scenes all feature heavily. References to other movies come thick and fast throughout, and HOT FUZZ will have film fans' memories working overtime as they try to catch all the allusions to Pegg/Wright/Frost's favorite films. A veritable Who's Who of British comedy provides support, with Martin Freeman (THE OFFICE), Bill Bailey (BLACK BOOKS), Steve Coogan (I'M ALAN PARTRIDGE), and Olivia Colman (PEEP SHOW) in small roles, and there's even space in the cast for serious actors like Timothy Dalton and Paddy Considine. HOT FUZZ eases up on the humor of SHAUN OF THE DEAD and often threatens to topple over into Chuck Norris territory, but Wright manages to insert enough gags to keep the balance just about perfect, providing a fitting, amusing, and occasionally touching homage to cinema's action heroes.

I loved 'Shaun of the Dead' so much that I ran to the theater and watched 'Hot Fuzz' when it 1st came out and just knew that I'd get addicted to watching it over & over as well! Picked up single disc and enjoyed it. Heard about the 3-disc version via dvd talk. It has all that was on the US version as well as the UK stuff, too, plus a longer (extra 40 mins!) exclusive cut of Hot Fuzz Rally, in which covers their whirlwind press tour all over the US, that's worth the price alone! These guys are so fun to watch! (You have to view it again with commentary, too! I never would've understood the cake-flushing fetish that they kept having in their hotel rooms without it. It's the flushing, man! Their commodes don't have the thrust that ours have here in the states! Ta!) If you're a Simon Pegg fan like me, you must get you a copy! Now, if only they'd release a 3-disc of 'Shaun' or region 1 copies of 'Spaced'...Read More
