The World's End
I had some moderate expectations coming in, since I like Simon Pegg movies (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead). The first third of this sci-fi comedy was pretty great. Started out as a normal pub crawl reunion of sorts with unresolved issues of the past, with funny, fast and quick-witted dialogue. Sets up the situation nicely, with a few flashbacks to introduce the characters.
Then came the middle third with its weird sci-fi twist regarding the residents of the town, making the pub crawl turn into a life or death situation. I'm OK with it at this point, but it kinda comes out of nowhere. Movie tells you "Yea, this happened just now, deal with it." A lot of Nick Frost kicking ass here, lol.
The final third of the movie is a real drag since it doesn't really clean up those issues from the beginning neatly, and the sci-fi portion of it just jumps off the rails altogether by the end. Forget half-way, they decide to go all-in, baby.
Overall, it was somewhat enjoyable, Pegg has great dialogue, however the rest of the cast was a bit lacking. I think I would have been happier if the whole sci-fi bit was scrapped and we just had a typical comedy instead.
TL;DR - Didn't Suck, but leaves you with WTF face. Rating 3/5
