The World’s End is the third film in the “Three Flavours Cornetto” trilogy, following “Shaun of the Dead” (which I really liked) and “Hot Fuzz” (not so much). But they are not connected – you don’t need to have watched the previous two to enjoy this one.
If you don’t know the premise of the movie, it starts off seemingly obvious and then, typical of a movie like “Shaun of the Dead”, gets REALLY WEIRD.
This is the point at which you either commit to the rest of the movie (because it won’t get any less weird) or just turn it off.
If you continue to watch, it’s a very funny, dry, British dark comedy.
But it’s the last 15 minutes that really made the movie fun for me. I won’t ruin it but I will say, it’s the reason why I watch anything Simon Pegg is in.
