A man of your legendary prowess drinking fucking rain! (spoiler notice)
And so ends Edgar Wright's, Simon Pegg's and Nick Frost's much-lauded 'Cornetto trilogy'. The World's End comes not entirely hot on the heels of the breakthrough success of 2004's Shaun of the Dead and the hilarious Hot Fuzz from 2007. Once again, the story centers around a pair of friends played by Pegg and Frost. I say a pair, not the pair, since the tales are unrelated and the characters different every time. The trilogy's hallmark isn't its stories, it's the way it smartly deconstructs modern genre cinema and its tropes; lovingly put together in films brimming with inside jokes, knowing foreshadowing and a real jolt of craft.
