Top cop Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) is good. So good he's making everyone else look bad. So, with a few shuffles of some paperwork, he's out of the London force and off to the sleepy British town of Sandford, where nothing EVER happens... that is until people's heads start falling off. Two mysterious decapitations lead Angel and his hapless sidekick Danny Butterman (Nick Frost) on the hunt for the truth at the center of some town-wide conspiracy.

In HOT FUZZ, director Edgar Wright and company do to action cinema what they did to horror: They walk the cleverest of lines between homage, parody, and downright badass awesome. Wright has said his films “lack the sneer that a lot of parodies have that look down on their source material. Because we're looking up to it.” And, when you model yourself after movies like POINT BREAK and BAD BOYS II, how could the results be anything but spectacular? Pepper in some Jim Broadbent and a slimy turn from the underrated Timothy Dalton and you got yourself A MOVIE. 

Prepare for an evening of fun, guns, and a whole lotta laughs. What are YOU waiting for? "BRING THE NOISE!"
