The World's End

 

Writer/director Edgar Wright, actor/writer Simon Pegg, and the rest of the crew from 'Shaun of the Dead' and 'Hot Fuzz' are back together again ... for a pub crawl.

Pegg plays a man who regrets not making it to the last pub, 'The World's End' on a crawl he did with his mates when he was younger.  So he decides to get the gang back together again to check this one off the bucket list.  Of course, things don't go as planned.  In fact, if you stay away from trailers and spoilers, there's absolutely no way you can see where this film is going.  It's a crazy ride from start to finish, and Pegg is tremendous as the ringmaster to this circus.  There are plenty of laughs and surprises that just wouldn't work in 9 out of 10 similar films.  But everything gels and this one is fresh, original, and fun.

Grade: A-
