Hot Fuzz

Dir: Edgar Wright

Starring: Simon Pegg, Martin Freeman

Narry Borman loves British films, and wants to see them succeed. But this is no good.

Hot Fuzz is aimed at 8-10 year olds who can repeat the lines in the school playground, which is bizarre considering it's constant cultural references are to things 8-10 year olds wouldn't understand. Sure, it’s tongue in cheek, but it’s still not funny.

The supposedly hilarious gratuitous violence is just awful - I don't want to see that.

There is some top class in here, though, especially Timothy Dalton and Jim Broadbent. The whole thing should have been about Tim’s supermarket – that would have been funny. Everyone seems so eager to reel off the next British star, too… ooh look, there’s Dame Edna. How about some humour instead!
