Latest Stories REVIEW: Why you should definitely go see 'The World's End' REVIEW: Why you should definitely go see 'The World's End' (Video)
It’s closing time for the summer movie-going season – a cinematic last call if you will – and the creators of SHAUN OF THE DEAD and HOT FUZZ (two brilliant British comedies) have saved this sharp, manic and gleefully self-indulgent, pre-apocalyptic, pub crawl comedy as a nightcap to an otherwise mediocre season. Masterfully blending heartfelt maturity with juvenile hijinks, this expertly crafted flick delivers an energetically zany, nostalgically offbeat and skillfully twisted tale of friendship, growing-up, addiction and planetary homogenization.
