Rated R · 109 minutes · 2013
Director Edgar Wright reunites with actors Simon Pegg and Nick Frost to tell the story of five high school friends who embark on a marathon pub crawl, only to learn that the quaint village where they grew up has been taken over by evil robots. The film is in direct step with Wright's Shaun of the Dead (2004) and Hot Fuzz (2007) (together, the three form the so-called Cornetto Trilogy), particularly in the way genre contextualizes rather than dictates the narrative. At its core the movie is a downer, a decidedly dark drama about delusion, addiction, and disappointment; somehow, these gloomy themes gel perfectly with the comic-book quirks that make the film so damn entertaining. The comedic skill of Pegg, Frost, and their costars has a lot to do with that, but most of the credit belongs to Wright, whose chaotic style belies the film's meticulous construction.
