Synopsis from DVD Cover:
Get ready for a gut-busting, outrageous comedy from the guys that created Shaun Of The Dead. Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) is a big-city cop who can't be stopped - but he's making everyone else on the force look bad. When he is reassigned to a small, quiet town, he struggles with this new, seemingly idyllic world and his bumbling partner (Nick Frost). But their dull existence is interrupted by several grisly and suspicious accidents, and the crime-fighting duo turn up the heat and hand out high-octane, car-chasing, gun-fighting, big-city justice in this hilarious hit critics are calling "Outrageous! Uproariously funny!" (Thelma Adams, US Weekly).
Being a big fan of "Shaun of the Dead," I have been waiting for a follow-up from director Edgar Wright for as long as I can remember. But Wright did one better, he made another comedy in the vein of "Shaun," brought back the main actors (Simon Pegg, Nick Frost) and added some of England's best actors, including Martin Freeman, Bill Nighy, Timothy Dalton and Jim Broadbent. In addition, look out for cameos by Wright himself, director Peter Jackson and Cate Blanchett.
"Hot Fuzz," is about a top cop, Nick Angel (Pegg), who works for the London police department. Putting his job over all things including his relationship with his girlfriend, Nick has begun making the rest of his fellow officers look bad in comparison. As a result, Chief Inspector and the rest of the department want him transferred. But to make the move good for everyone, they decide to place him in Sandford, one of the safest villages in England. Upon his arrival, Nick quickly begins to notice lots of "accidents," while the town's people are blind to the fact that the "accidents" are actually murders.
In a way, the story is very similar to "Shaun of the Dead"; Nick's partner is Danny (Nick Frost), the same person who played his buddy in "Shaun," plus everyone around Nick is convinced that the murders are just accidents, while in "Shaun," the zombies were seen as drunk people.
The film actually starts off great, with quick action shots of just about any movement, may it be paying at the counter or writing something down. But it quickly begins to drag as the story progresses. In fact, it got to the point, where I almost fell asleep. That quickly changed as soon as Nick began putting the puzzle together and everything was finally revealed. In the last 30 minutes, we are treated to a shoot out, only rivaled by the movie "Heat." And looking back on it now, I can't even remember what I found so boring to begin with. All I remember are the endless funny lines and the crazy action.
Similar to the movie, the extras are pretty entertaining as well. In "The Man Who Would Be Fuzz," Simon Pegg and Nick Frost act out a scene from the movie, in a ridiculous way. Then there are the Outtakes, which show the cast having a bit too much fun on set. You also get 20 minutes of deleted scenes with an optional commentary, which reveal that Nick's transfer was temporary and that Nick has killed someone on duty. In "Danny's Notebook," we get a closer look at Danny's drawings. In "The Fuzzball Rally US Tour Piece" we see Edgard Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost visiting America to promote their movie and try to turn interviews and Q&A sessions into a good time. Finally, there is "Hot Funk," which takes scenes from the film that have profanity and replaces them with nonsense for the TV audience. And of course, the movie comes with a Commentary track by Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright.
The makers of "Hot Fuzz" know how to leave on a high note, by putting all the boring stuff in the beginning and ending with 30 minutes of violence. Add all the great bonus material and you got yourself a must buy DVD.
