ReviewSource ReelViews
Review The team of Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg, the guys who combined guffaws and gore in Shaun of the Dead, have elected to follow their offbeat zombie farce with an action comedy. Considering their earlier success, it is perhaps unsurprising that they have gotten it mostly right. Hot Fuzz is a little too long and suffers from a sagging midsection when the level of exposition becomes laborious, but the spectacularly entertaining final 30 minutes compensates for a lot of flaws...Hot Fuzz is the second police satire to arrive in theaters this year and it is vastly superior to Reno 911. That earlier film is an example of what happens when a movie uses lame material to tie together an uneven string of jokes. Hot Fuzz has a higher agenda, and it shows. This movie wants to tickle the funny bone while telling a story that's worth telling. For the most part, Wright achieves this aim.

Review Having successfully sent up the zombie film in the delightfully daft Shaun of the Dead, the team of writer/director Edgar Wright, writer/actor Simon Pegg, and actor Nick Frost is back. This time, the gang sets its sights on the action movie with the wild, wonderful, and completely hysterical Hot Fuzz. It is only April, too early to start talking about "best-ofs" for 2007, but this perfectly executed piece of movie-making brilliance sets the bar awfully high for every other comedy destined to come out this year. It is nothing short of genius...Wright appears to be having the time of his life, directing a series of action set pieces in the most unlikely of settings that ape their deadly serious and much bigger budget Hollywood counterparts. And if that was not enough, the movie is virtually a who's who of Brit actors...Try not to speed too much on the way to the multiplex, lest someone like Nick Angel pull you over, but do race to Hot Fuzz. It is one arresting comedy.

J.R. Jones, Chicago Reader The good humor bubbles up from a deep reservoir of affection for Hollywood schlock.
Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide laceratingly entertaining as its predecessor [Shaun of the Dead].
Nathan Rabin, The Onion A.V. Club Everything an action-comedy should be.
Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor In addition to the marvelous lead cast, all sorts of funny performers show up in cameo roles...
Richard Corliss, Time The best, surely the smartest, English-language movie of the year to date.
