And following right on the heels of the Die Hard sequel, British smash Hot Fuzz squeals onto U.S. screens. From the awesome creators and stars of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz is an excellent satire of action films, starring a huge British cast, lead by Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Nicholas Angel (played by Simon Pegg) is also a super cop, only stationed in London, where they do not carry guns. Instead, makes use of his razor sharp ball point pen and fully loaded notepad. However, the rest of the London PD does not appreciate the wonderful job Angel is doing, and he is transferred to the small, rural town of Sanford, Gloucestershire.
There he chases after graffiti vandals, shop-lifters, and runaway geese. His only consolation is making friends with Constable Danny Butterman, the Chief Inspector’s son, who introduces him to the awe-inspiring world of shoot-em-up movies. Hot Fuzz would keep the audience guessing “What’s next?” if they weren’t laughing so hard.
