This movie is not as good as Shaun of the Dead or Hot Fuzz, but it was interesting and entertaining. Simplifying the overall plot and cutting down some of the non-relevant character scenes would have helped.

The film's writers, Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright, call this film the completion of their trilogy beginning with Shaun of the Dead, followed by Hot Fuzz. If you liked those two movies, you'll love this one. It is hilarious and yet dramatically intelligent. The characters have depth and complexity, the conflicts of youth vs adulthood, free license vs responsibility, freedom vs oppression, creativity vs conformity, are seriously explored and yet the movie is absolutely hilarious. It's worth watching twice to go over the brilliant dialogue and fabulous performances. In comparison, I recently endured the first twenty minutes of This is the End before turning it off - I think this movie was trying to do what World's End successfully did. The World's End guys explore their juvenile past through their adult lenses; the gang in This is the End remain juveniles in adult bodies and just go from one incredibly vulgar and meaningless sketch to the next without intelligence and without humour. I highly recommend World's End; stay far away from This is the End.

I couldn't believe I was seeing what I was seeing for most of this movie. But it was awesome. Really funny and weird.

This movie is really weird, but Martin Freeman is in it. So yeah, watch it.

Not you every day movie. I liked it because it's different and bizarre.

Simon Pegg was funny, but it was Nick Frost that I was really impressed with. His fight scenes were hilarious.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. Not too bad---good performance. Very predictable but still entertaining.

I was very disappointed. The first really bad movie I've seen by Simon Pegg.

Hilarious AND heart-warming...I could watch this on repeat. Someone had told me before I went to the theatre that the film was Sci-Fi, but I completely forgot until the characters and myself were pretty much smacked in the face with it. Some people may complain that it was cheesy or stupid but I nearly bust a gut laughing. I've seen both Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz but they've got nothing on The World's End.

There's only one part I laughed. It is a good cast, totally wasted on flimsy story.
