Big Cops. Small Town. Moderate Violence.

Top cop Nicholas Angel is good he's making everyone else look bad. So, with a few shuffles of some paperwork, he's out of the London force and off to the sleepy British town of Sandford, where nothing EVER happens....that is until people's heads start falling off. Two mysterious decapitations lead Angel and his hapless sidekick Danny Butterman on the hunt for the truth at the center of some town-wide conspiracy.

In HOT FUZZ, Edgar Wright and company do to action cinema what they did to horror: they walk the cleverest of lines between homage, parody, and downright bad ass awesome. Wright has said his films “lack the sneer that a lot of parodies have that look down on their source material. Because we're looking up to it.” And, when you model yourself after movies like POINT BREAK and BAD BOYS II, how could the results be anything but spectacular? Pepper in some Jim Broadbent and a slimey turn from the underrated Timothy Dalton and you got yourself a movie,

So, we're preparing ourselves for an evening of fun, guns, and a whole lotta laughs as we celebrate the re-teaming of Wright, Nick Frost and Simon Pegg in the second chapter in Wright’s Cornetto trilogy with HOT FUZZ.  What are YOU waiting for? "BRING THE NOISE!" (Greg MacLennan)
