Oxymoron? In most cases for comedy these days yes, but not when it comes to HOT FUZZ. So far Pegg and Wright can do no wrong. I was not a big fan of spoof films (ESPECIALLY zombie spoofs) until I saw Shaun of the Dead which made me realize that comedy and action (and in this case horror too) can go together. I was thorougly entertained and laughed a lot during the film; it was even funnier than 300. It has a very sharp script, creative camerawork, excellent editing, great actors and Wright is not afraid to push the gore along with everything else but selectively so as to not make it tiring. There is a section in the finale that made me howl, but I won't reveal it yet. Comic brilliance. See it.
