Simon Pegg and Nick Frost in Hot Fuzz

1. Hot Fuzz (2007)

READERS’ CHOICE

Author Thomas Wolfe once said you can’t go home again. Maybe. But you can always blow it up. That’s what Edgar Wright set out to do in iconic fashion via Hot Fuzz, the second and best of his and co-writer Simon Pegg’s fabled Cornetto Trilogy. Filmed at Wright’s home of Wells in Somerset—a “cathedral city” (read: village) in southern England—the filmmaker returned to old haunts to craft a guns-blazing actioner made in the image of Shane Black buddy cop scripts and Michael Bay camera movements.

The genius of Hot Fuzz, however, is that it doesn’t start out this way. Initially, this is a scathingly sardonic satire of bucolic English country living and the type of prestige BBC television that might be set there. In other words, it’s hell on earth for London’s big city cop Nicolas Angel (Pegg). But as he and hapless action movie geek Danny Butterman (Nick Frost) uncover a web of murder throughout the community, slowly their world morphs into the Hollywood cheesfests of Danny’s DVD collection. The final 20 minutes are a glorious crescendo of action movie clichés and belly-bursting laughs that still echo on 15 years later. – DC
