The World’s End
The World’s End follows the antics of a group of five childhood friends who reunite 20 years after first attempting the epic Golden Mile pub crawl, in a foolhardy attempt to complete what they never finished in their teens. Led by Gary King (Pegg) the five friends who had essentially drifted apart as they grew up, reluctantly agree to join the madness, despite the obvious fact that Gary is the only one of them still holding onto his teenage antics.
When they arrive at their childhood town, things just don’t seem right. Something is odd. It takes a few pints and a few pubs before they discover that the place has been taken over by alien powered robots.
All hell breaks loose, but despite being hunted by a town of robots hell bent on their destruction, Gary proclaims that the only way to beat them, is to complete their quest of finishing the Golden Mile pub crawl.
Rather than being a film littered with laugh out loud moments, The World’s End is more of a chuckle and smile film. There are still moments that will have you laughing out loud, but a rarity amongst comedies these days, The World’s End will have you grinning the whole way through the film. There is not a dull moment to be found in Wright’s 109 minute feature, even the twist at the end will have you smiling.
