Let’s be clear about one thing. “The World’s End” isn’t some futuristic doomsday thriller about the end of the world.
“The World’s End” is a zany British comedy about boyhood friends making up for lost time with one hell raising, Pub crawling, binge drinking night on the town.
If you’re a Simon Pegg fan you’re probably attuned to his brand of screwball humor.
The Title, “The World’s end”, refers to the final destination during their night of monumental carousing. The lunatic comedy is strictly for fans who’ve developed a taste for Simon Pegg’s style.
Either Pegg and his pals have had one pint too many or the town’s nightlife has been taken over by other worldly beings. But a word of warning; if you’re not calibrated to what’s made Simon Pegg such a cult favorite since “Shaun of the Dead”, it’s best to head off in a different direction. Pegg can somehow get under your skin.
Otherwise, inspired chaos best describes “The World’s End”. And if you love British humor, you surely must come along for the Pub crawl where the picture’s rewarded with 3 stars.
If you’re in the mood for inspired silliness with a clever edge, make “The World’s End” your destination.
