(This review may contain spoilers).
I’ve seen this film a few times to date now. It’s an easy and entertaining way to spend a couple of hours and although I don’t have this film on DVD, I have seen it on television a few times.
I liked that this film was a comedy where the main character had a more serious slant. It was interesting to see Simon Pegg as Nick Angel, a police officer who takes his work seriously while most people ‘seem’ content to let things lie.
It was amusing to see Nick Frost playing Danny, who came across as really well-meaning and eager to learn… but the sort of follower who can be irritating on a bad day. It was good to see the two characters interacting with each other and the friendship that grew between the two of them.
Although a lot of the scenes in this film were over-the-top, I still found the whole film really entertaining to watch, even though I have seen this movie repeatedly. There were some quite funny moments in this and I did like the way things (and people) came together by the end.
There were quite a few recognisable actors in this and even though some of them only had small parts, I still liked that there were a lot of different actors I knew in this. It’s very gory in parts, but I think the film is entertaining and it did a good job of keeping my attention throughout.
