The World's End
Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”
Uproarious. I laughed throughout, more and more towards the end as the energy ramped up. It's more heartfelt and wistful than Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, owing to the advancing ages of the creative team. Eddie Marsan clicks right into this troupe of recurring actors. The fact that the pub crawl keeps happening in the face of such alarming danger is more than a little tough to swallow, but granted that one conceit, the film spins gold from it.

Samir Mehta: “It ruled.”
Perfect ending to the Cornetto trilogy. While it wasn't as funny as Shaun of the Dead or Hot Fuzz, it was actually substantially deeper and more thoughtful. A wonderful misanthropic AND humanistic tale. Special effects were also fun, the acting was typically excellent, and the script was witty as expected in the Pegg/White collaborations.
Erik Bates: “It was ok.”
I was underwhelmed. I found Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz to be much funnier movies. To me, this one just kind of crawled (pun partially intended). Don't get me wrong. It was funny. I laughed out loud in a few places, even. To me, holding it up against the first two films, it just didn't size up.
