Hot Fuzz

What's it about?

As a former London constable, Nicholas Angel finds it difficult to adapt to his new assignment in the sleepy British village of Sandford. However, when a series of grisly accidents rocks Sandford, Angel smells something rotten in the idyllic village.

Why do we love it?

Hot Fuzz has an attention to detail that you will not believe. It takes a special kind of film to parody action and buddy cop films so well that it actually becomes better than the work that inspired it. Edgar Wright's signature touch and quick witted writing means there's something new to find on every watch.
