Hot Fuzz (2007)

Action, Comedy, Mystery |.

Hot Fuzz is a action comedy film directed by Edgar Wright who co-wrote the script with Simon Pegg. Pegg and Nick Frost play police officers investigating a series of mysterious deaths in a West Country village. It is the second film in the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy by Wright, Pegg, Frost and producer Nira Park.

Over 100 action films were used as inspiration for developing the script. Principal photography took place in Wells, Somerset – Wright’s hometown. Filmed over eleven weeks in early 2006, it featured an extensive cast along with various uncredited cameos. Visual effects were developed by ten artists to expand on or add explosions, gore, and gunfire scenes. The film debuted on 14 February 2007 in the United Kingdom and 20 April in the United States, grossing US$80 million worldwide. Two different soundtracks were released in the UK and US.

PC Nicholas Angel is a high-achieving officer of the London Metropolitan Police Service. He is promoted to Sergeant, but his jealous colleagues arrange for him to be reassigned to the small rural town of Sandford, Gloucestershire, a regular “Village of the Year” winner. Angel is soon frustrated by his lazy and incompetent colleagues. His partner, PC Danny Butterman, is a fan of buddy cop films and son of Inspector Frank Butterman, Angel’s superior.

The two lead actors of a poorly acted “homage to Romeo and Juliet”, whom Angel had pulled over earlier for speeding, are decapitated by a cloaked figure wielding an axe, who disguises it as a car accident. Angel is the only officer who suspects foul play. Sent to resolve a dispute, Angel discovers a stash of illegal weapons, including an old naval mine, and locks them in the police station.
