After watching pretty much every action film there is, director Edgar Wright and writer Simon Pegg concocted the brilliant Hot Fuzz, a mash-up of genre conventions that honors the works it borrows from and ends up being more than the sum of its parts. Pegg plays an over-achieving London cop transferred to a quiet village after his perfect record puts his entire department to shame. There, he’s partnered with an oafish constable (Nick Frost) and soon uncovers a series of suspicious accidents and events that lead to honest-to-goodness crime.
