      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      The brilliant minds behind Shaun of the Dead successfully take a shot at the buddy cop genre with Hot Fuzz. The result is a bitingly satiric and hugely entertaining parody.

      David Fear Blender What makes Wright & Co.’s buddy-cop goof so spot-on is that, like their previous take on splatter flicks, the pair share an affection for -- and thorough knowledge of -- cineplex cheese with their film-geek fan base. Sep 8, 2023 Full Review Ben Kenigsberg Time Out Rated: 4/5 Nov 18, 2011 Full Review Joshua Rothkopf Time Out Rated: 5/5 Nov 17, 2011 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review This is great filmmaking and storytelling that just so happens to allude to other action movies in its construction. And quite frankly, it’s greatly entertaining in both the comedic and action realms, far surpassing its referenced sources. Rated: 4/4 Mar 8, 2024 Full Review Sean Axmaker Stream on Demand ... the madcap shoot-outs that erupt in the cute little country village... is both a surreal parody of urban action spectacle and seventies TV cop clichés and a marvelous bit of comic action in its own right. Apr 14, 2023 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy An amusing comedy that also manages to evoke memories of The Wicker Man, Plague of the Zombies, and other spooky yarns centering on eccentric villagers inhabiting the less-traveled paths of the British Isles. Rated: 3/4 Oct 3, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews

      eric g Had a blast watching this in theaters. Crowd was awesome. The only reason I can't go 5 is because I find the last act a little wonky and long-winded. Other than that, damn near perfect dark comedy Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 06/24/24 Full Review Prabudhjeet A Don't read any review Don't watch any trailer Don't read about the movie JUST GO AND WATCH THIS MASTERPIECE Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/22/24 Full Review Maximilian B My favourite movie of the cornetto trilogy and my one of my favourite comedy movies! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/22/24 Full Review Samuel S I wasn't sold completely on the film but the ending was quite fun and clever so it stuck the landing. A lot of the humor was not landing with me. It is a fun story with some fun editing and some clever bits. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/14/24 Full Review Augustine J This movie is undeniably a great film. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have some of the best on screen chemistry of any buddy cop paring. Edgar Wright's signature style is on full display in this movie and it's on point. The humor is great and thoroughly British Sometimes there are gags in this movie that you don't get until the fifth or even sixth viewing. That helps to make it the perfect rewatch movie. If you haven't seen this movie. Shame. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/09/24 Full Review Dan R Three years after 'Shaun of the Dead', came the second part of the 'Cornetto Trilogy' with 'Hot Fuzz'. SYNOPSIS: 'A skilled London police officer, after irritating superiors with his embarrassing effectiveness, is transferred to a village where the easygoing officers object to his fervor for regulations, as a string of grisly murders strikes the town.' With Wright and Peg back at the writing helm of the story, and Nick Frost returning to reform that exceptional duo with Pegg, this film is both entertaining and hilarious. It's a madcap cop drama which is parody of classic British police dramas. It's full of clichés, but clichés we'll love and find entertaining. It's the best! The characters are brilliant, as are the cast playing them. You just have to love all of them, they just make you laugh and smile, even the villains. Many of these actors have gone onto bigger things, including Oscar wins. There are so many Easter eggs within this film it's great fun and I'll never get bored of this film. An absolute joy of a film. Full of laughs. 9/10 Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/06/24 Full Review Read all reviews
