The World’s End (Movie Review)

08.23.2013 | By |


The “1-4-0″: @TWEMovie is a mix of the first 2 Pegg and Frost films – funny, witty, swift cuts and packs and emotional punch beneath it.

The Gist: After an attack of nostalgia, an ol’ high school friend decides to get the boys back together to finish what they started decades ago – complete 12 straight pubs until they reach the king of all pubs… The World’s End. But shit goes horribly wrong again when something stands in their way.

The Highlights: The fact that Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and director Edgar Wright made such an entertaining movie about such a ludicrous premise is just pure talent at work. This movie will connect with people. Why? It explores themes of nostalgia, regrets, bygone youth and growing up.

The Lowlights: The premise can be seen as the weakest link, but the guys make it work. There is a plot twist that is just ridiculous which has shades of Hot Fuzz’s storyline.  

Pay or Nay?: Pay for it because it is a very funny film with a level of human connection. Ultimately, these are the types of movies Wright, Pegg and Frost do and we are just lucky to be witnesses to them!
