The World’s End is a perfectly appealing character/sci-fi film that delivers on a promise and a perfect companion piece for Shaun of the Dead. Although instead of zombies gone amuck, it’s robots. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost switch archetypes this time making Pegg an alcoholic schlub who can’t seem to move on from the glory days of his youth. It’s a funny and often heartbreaking scenario, brought to life by a very talented cast that works brilliantly together even when the absurdity reaches a frantic pace in the second half. Sure the lengthy prologue and epilogue that bookend the movie are a touch too long but the result is wholly satisfying. The sensibilities may be anti-Hollywood, but this is cheeky, irreverent UK film doesn’t take itself too seriously and just wants to bloody entertain you. [A]
