Comedy, Science fiction
Simon Pegg and Nick Frost star as part of an old gang of friends getting back together to finish a pub-crawl they failed to complete 20 years earlier in their hometown. Pegg plays King, the group leader and now slightly disturbed man-child, while Frost plays Andy, the group pessimist who is still recovering from a partying incident years before. They start drinking pints, only to discover that blue-blooded robots have overrun their old town, so in addition to completing the crawl they must save the world. This is the third film from Pegg and director Edgar Wright after Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, and it is a worthy conclusion to their “Cornetto” trilogy (named for a brand of ice cream that appears in all three films). It delivers a lot of laughs, great action, and even serves a significant emotional punch. One of the summer movie season’s great surprises.
