Consensus: The brilliant minds behind Shaun of the Dead successfully take a shot at the buddy cop genre with Hot Fuzz. The result is a bitingly satiric and hugely entertaining parody.

It's such a vibrant goof, so full of love both for the movies and for its cast of ridiculous characters that you forgive it the odd soggy stretch.

Hot Fuzz is everything an action-comedy should be. It achieves through parody what most films in the genre can't accomplish straight.

It's a perfect spoof of the once popular action genre, that's highlighted by the chemistry of Pegg and Frost.

The movie duly quickens into pursuits of every speed, and the homage to action thrillers is there in the smallest detail; the clicking of a ballpoint pen, say, is amplified to sound as menacing as the cocking of a gun.

Because this culture-clash comedy has real characters, a real story and a real big payoff, the two-hour length is a light sentence.

Hot Fuzz, Edgar Wright's follow-up to his extremely popular zombie satire Shaun of the Dead (2004), improves on the latter's strong points in every conceivable way while drastically tightening up its weakest elements.
