I'm not going to go into a whole review or anything here, it's a pretty complex film that I think will demand a second viewing to take it all in. I will say that it doesn't have the mass appeal of Shaun of the Dead or even Hot Fuzz, but I found it to be rather excellent despite a few minor flaws. It's very funny, but it's also the darkest thing Edgar Wright has done so far, perhaps a bit too dark to where it might turn off some viewers. I also have to say Wright seems to be getting better and better at action scenes, the fight scenes are pretty exhilarating. And here's something I discovered; Nick Frost can kick some absolute ass if he needs to.
Do yourself a favor, check it out yourself November 19th.
