The World's End (2013)

The World's End (2013)

Directed by Edgar Wright


Edgar Wright returns with the final film in his thematic trilogy with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. In this film we see five friends who reunite in an attempt to top their epic pub crawl from 20 years earlier and unwittingly become humankind's only hope for survival. The story takes a lot longer to find its feet that either Shaun of the Dead or Hot Fuzz did but when it does it is a lot of fun. The great cast help sell the well written characters and relationships at the centre of all the madness and the direction is spot on.
My only complaint is that after the film seems to come full circle just after the climax that they added an epilogue that goes on for too long and isn't all that great. The film would have been better without it or at least just as a post credit sequence. All in all it is not as good as the other two films but there is still fun to be found here and a good one to see on the big screen.
