This movie was divided into three parts for me. First there were the set-up scenes: Gary arranging the reunion tour and providing background of the five friends. It was fairly predictable and I found it almost impossible to overcome my dislike for the Gary character. It was only because I was slightly distracted by something else that I kept watching it. Then at about the 35-40 minute mark, it got better. There were action scenes, of course, but even the humor seemed to pick up the pace, and there was a little character development and growth. It was fun viewing for a long time.
Then there was the third section (again, for me anyway) when the plot is wrapped up at such an alarming speed so as to result in an anti-climax. And that is followed by a rather lackluster narration by one of the characters stating what had happened to everyone and explaining the ending that the movie had covered so scantly.
So I can’t say I regret watching it, but I probably wouldn’t watch it again if the opportunity arises.
Just three cornetto’s, give them to me!
Who’s the helmet without a helmet?
Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Edgar Wright reconvene to close down the cornetto trilogy that had began with Sean of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. Here we find Pegg as a card carrying alcoholic who coerces his old mates into undertaking a fabled drinking binge in their home town of New Haven. But things are not as they used to be…
This simply isn’t on the same level as “Sean and Fuzz”, but that doesn’t remotely make it a duffer of a film. Weight of expectation was enormous, and rightly so, but although it doesn’t carry the mighty comedic gold of the first two films, it has fun, cheek and emotion in abundance. In fact its biggest crime is not being the final film so many legions of fans were hoping for. If stripping back those expectations and original disappointments, then repeat viewings bring plentiful rewards.
Riffing on science fiction films, pic’s story cunningly observes male behaviour, most notably the man-child effect and the refusal to let the past stay in the past, the pic begins in almost solemn fashion and ends in daring chaos. Along the way there’s a whole host of sly visual gags to catch, whilst the caustic concerns for once vibrant towns brought down by soulless entertainment chains positively fizzles with poignant awareness.
No doubt about it, Wright and Pegg call their own shots, which is ultimately refreshing in an era of film making struggling to keep its head above the sequel and remake swamp. Choice dialogue, some of which is very British in street core, and some laugh out loud moments, off set the more juvenile moments filtered through the plot.
A super cast has been assembled, where series regulars either star or cameo to further emphasise the constant of the cornetto trilogy – that of film lovers making films for film lovers, with camaraderie of cast set in stone. The sound track choices sparkle, a mix of Brit-Pop, Madchester and era defining popsters (Old Red Eyes Is Back by The Beautiful South has never been so pertinently used). All baked in a superb period tinted pie.
There’s something of an action overload, while some tonal shifts have understandably proved to be confusing to some. But this still showcases – in credit – the considerable talents of Messrs Wright, Pegg and Frost. Teen angst machismo, alcoholism and hidden passions clash with Invasion of the Body Snatchers! It shouldn’t work, but it does! 7/10
Danger on the edge of town
Five pre-middle-aged male friends are drawn to Newton Haven, the site of their failed dozen-pub crawl as students in 1990. They’re led by Gary King (Simon Pegg). He’s the one who couldn’t move on from that night; couldn’t get a job like them, or get married like them. Reluctant revelry and bad-tempered banter ensues, before the gang discovers that the residents of the town have changed. That is, they have BEEN changed…
The World’s End is considerably better than the ostensibly similar This Is The End, a super-indulgent American comedy which mistook f-bombs for humour and name-dropping for satire. Edgar Wright’s film is indulgent also, but at the service of audience enjoyment, as opposed to the enjoyment of the players. The script is surprisingly dense and intricate, many of its jokes arriving bittersweet. In an era when so many comedies are heavily (and lazily) improvised, it’s refreshing to watch a tightly woven story unfold for once.
The action scenes are given equal attention, lovingly choreographed like some kind of slapstick dance. Chief pugilist is Andrew, our sort-of-hero, played by Nick Frost with remarkable agility. This instalment is far less bloodthirsty than its predecessors – more Scott Pilgrim than Shaun.
The rest of the group is made up of Paddy Considine, Eddie Marsan, and Martin Freeman. The performances are all top-drawer, although it takes time for their individual personalities to emerge. But then, the fact that they are now practically indistinguishable may be the point – for all their disapproval of Gary, they are the ones playing it safe.
What’s most impressive about The World’s End is the fact that it’s actually about something. Nostalgia is easy to indulge but difficult to deconstruct, but this film genuinely aspires to explore the idea of selective memory – as with a bad hangover, our memories tends to return in subjective spasms, and the truth is only accessible by gathering multiple witnesses. And the truth isn’t always what it cracked up to be.
The World’s End is, for me, the best of the “Cornetto Trilogy”. Highly recommended.
Five guys, 12 pubs, 50 pints!
Edgar Wright brings us the final installment of the Cornetto trilogy with his most out-there comedy to date. The World’s End is an action-packed, sci-fi comedy where a number of familiar faces return to help Gary King (Simon Pegg) achieve his lifelong dream and complete the ‘golden mile’ in their hometown of Newton Haven. Five guys, 12 pubs, 60 pints!
I’d written a paragraph about the character’s we see from previous films but that’d spoil it a little. You’re welcome. I think part of the fun is spotting these for yourself and realising how close knit the cast are… so moving swiftly on!
As you’d expect, the film was cleverly written and it was a lot of fun to watch. However, there’s a reference a minute to Edgar Wrights previous work which, for fans, isn’t a bad thing, but newcomers to the trilogy will struggle to keep up.
Within the film, there are a number of stories and ideas going on here, but don’t let us spoil it for you. The World’s End is out now and, for veterans of the trilogy, well worth a watch!
Nick Frost was a highlight for me, playing a different type of character this time round and for the better. Usually the happy-go-lucky friend, he plays a much more complex and leader type role. With so many other great names in the film, there was a risk that Nick Frost could fall in to the shadow of Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine or Eddie Marsan (who was awesome by the way)… but he doesn’t. This is Frost’s greatest film yet.
If you haven’t seen Shaun of the Dead or Hot Fuzz, it might be hit or miss so check them out before this… it is the end of a trilogy after all! Watching The World’s End first would be like watching Return of the King and, even though they’re unrelated, you’ll feel left out when everyone starts laughing at a fruit machine playing in the background and you have no idea why.
The film will do well, regardless how good it is – it was a great ending to the trilogy that started almost ten years ago. These have put British cinema on the map. And even though it’s a mixed review, (ranging from a 6 to a 9 out of 10)… the golden mile sounds like a great idea – who’s up for it? DW.
