This film was highly anticipated both by myself and most of the world. The comedy combination of Simon Pegg, Edgar Wright, and Nick Frost are unmatchable and without it the world would be a much less humorous place. I had thought about making a joke about how without them and their comedy that the world might come to an end and then I would have put a few dots and put THE WORLD’S END! But I ultimately decided against it because it wasn’t a particularly funny.
The World’s End is the third film in a trilogy penned by long time buddies Wright and Pegg and usually with a trilogy, a third film means it’s over. It’s sad to think that we won’t be getting any more movies along the likes of Shaun Of The Dead and Hot Fuzz but this trilogy will go down in history as one of the funniest of all time.
Let’s move on to why this movie is so great. Please note this article contains minor spoilers.
4. Constant Hilarity
I’m clearly a huge fan of Simon Pegg, Edgar Wright, and Nick Frost and I have been ever since their days doing their perfect television show Spaced but this film brings more beloved actors to the screen that bleed brilliance everywhere. These actors include Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, and Eddie Marsan.
My theater atrium for this movie was sold out; I am convinced that I got the last two tickets because when my date and I entered the theater there were only two seats remaining and even though they were god awful seats, the movie made it worth every uncomfortable second.
The entire theater had a hive mind when it came to laughing at the film. When a joke was told or something funny happened, everyone laughed in unison.
