Hot Fuss

The super cool movie I mentioned earlier was Hot Fuss. It's seriously awesome! There is this über cop called Nicholas Angel who is banished from London to boring countryside by jealous colleagues. There he gets a new partner who is not very bright but good-hearted. In no time Nicholas realizes that there is something funny going on in the village... And he is about to find out what.

Before I saw this I thought it was just an another action movie. And even though I happen to like action movies I was really skeptic about this one. Within the first few minutes I realized that I was mistaken. It was indeed a movie about cops, crime and mystery, but it was also a brilliant British comedy. Hot Fuss has the same writers and director as Shaun of the Dead, and that is not the only similarity between these movies. They also have the same leading actors and some similar lines too. And actually the plot is quite similar too. Though it took me long to realize the connection between these two movies because it has been a long time since I saw Shaun of the Dead. It was difficult to recall those details.

Anyway. If you liked Shaun of the Dead, you will love Hot Fuss too. It's guaranteed. But if you haven't seen Shaun of the Dead yet, make sure that you watch it first, otherwise you may get disappointed. Hot Fuss is so much better. Here is the trailer for you:
