The action-packed new comedy from the
makers of the hit movie "Shaun of the Dead." With the same
razor-sharp combination of humor and attention to detail
they used to breathe new life into the undead, Simon Pegg
and Edgar Wright have set their sights on Action Movies for
their next uniquely funny vision.
Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) is the finest cop London has to
offer, with an arrest record 400% higher than any other
officer on the force. He's so good, he makes everyone else
look bad. As a result, Angel's superiors send him to a place
where his talents won't be quite so embarrassing -- the
sleepy and seemingly crime-free village of Sandford.
Once there, he is partnered with the well-meaning but
overeager police officer Danny Butterman (Nick Frost). The
son of amiable Police Chief Frank Butterman (Jim Broadbent),
Danny is a huge action movie fan and believes his new
big-city partner might just be a real-life "bad boy," and
his chance to experience the life of gunfights and car
chases he so longs for. Angel is quick to dismiss this as
childish fantasy and Danny's puppy-like enthusiasm only adds
to Angel's growing frustration.
However, as a series of grisly accidents rocks the village,
Angel is convinced that Sandford is not what it seems and as
the intrigue deepens, Danny's dreams of explosive,
high-octane, car-chasing, gunfighting, all-out action seem
more and more like a reality.
It's time for these small-town cops to break out some
Written by Pegg and director Edgar Wright, "Hot Fuzz"

Daylights"), Martin Freeman ("The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the
