After overachieving hot shot London cop Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) infuriates his jealous fellow officers and superiors, he finds himself transferred to a countryside village that’s anything but exciting. But the town’s peaceful veil is lifted when respected community leaders are killed in a series of bizarre and grizzly accidents. Now it’s up to Angel and his action movie obsessed partner (Nick Frost) to get to the bottom of these strange events –and catch a killer! The second entry in director Edgar Wright’s hilarious Three Flavors Cornetto Trilogy (the others being Shaun of the Dead and The World’s End), Hot Fuzz is a highly entertaining mix of silliness, smarts and a bit of heart.
