Better than Paul in many ways, but also irritating.
Hot Fuzz is a great film ruined by a second half steeped in “comedy horror”.
While the gore isn’t as disturbing as that in American Psycho [a film which really relishes its own sick perversity], it’s still unnecessary.
In what kind of age and societies do we live where such trivialization of bloodshed is embraced as “funny”?
Perhaps it’s some social scourge that as popped up as a byproduct of the War “on” Terror.
Nevertheless, it is a filmmaking trend which is as trite as it is disgusting.
Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are plenty talented without such puerile Ed Gein fantasies.
