Director Edgar Wright (Fun Dead, Shaun of the Dead) has directed numerous movies and it shows greatly with the awesome job he did with The World’s End. This is a nice Sci-fi and comedy film to watch and it should be on your must watch list if you like Shaun of The Dead and Hot Fuzz. There was a great deal of laughter in the movie theater.
The World’s End is stupid funny where five friends reunite after 20 years at their hometown, Newton Haven. They decided to visit pubs all night long and little that they know, they become the ones to save the world. They discover that the town has been taken over by aliens in robots who are trying to reform humankind.
This movie has little violence with blue ink as the robot blood. Its more comedy/violence than real hardcore violence. There is a lot of bad language in this movie which total 4 words but is said a lot of times. There is some intense scenes where the violence is done to robots with blue blood and the robots do look like humans.
The World’s End is a nice watch because it is neither bad nor good. I did not have high expectations because I saw the trailer and knew there was comedy but no sense to the movie.
It is the type of movie that you just have to go with the flow and don’t put much thought in to it and what it is about. I find that this movie and Shaun of the Dead are similar because Shaun of the Dead had people who went to the pub and waited for the zombies to attack while these guys in The World’s End are fighting robots.
