Excerpt: Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg y Nick Frost cierran su espectacular trilogía sobre los géneros cinematográficos con la que estructuralmente puede ser la mejor película de las tres. Risas ácidas, grandes actores y un estupendo espectro técnico. Muy recomendable.
Excerpt: Resorting to the surviving characters literally shouting summary phrases in the film’s climax, the film displays an unsophistication hitherto unseen in Wright and Pegg’s writing. Yet even in this thickheaded moment, the gang continues to toss in zingers, producing quality laughs despite the story falling apart.
Excerpt: What’s so lovely about their third cinematic effort is the quiet sense of melancholy at its center, its keen understanding of how some people just don’t grow up, and try as you might, you cannot force them to. It is a more mature piece of work, which seems a peculiar way to label a zippy comedy about drinking beer and outrunning the apocalypse.
Excerpt: The World’s End is the completion of a trilogy of films that riff on long-established genres and feature Cornetto packaging prominently. But it’s also the completion of a three-part tale about late-blooming adulthood.
Excerpt: Even with the manic fight scenes and hilarious script, The World’s End is a very bittersweet film about the disappointments of adulthood, but also about the symbiotic relationship between those disappointments and the allure of nostalgia. One feeds the other, and the end result is a broken figure like Gary King.
Excerpt: In almost a decade since the aforementioned ‘Shaun Of The Dead’ wickedly mocked the horror genre with its sharpened Brit-style cheekiness, ‘World’ reminds us that Wright, Pegg and Frost have not lost a step in conveying their conventional sense of twisted outrageousness.
Excerpt: While Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz set the bar high, The World’s End is up to the task: one of the best comedies of the year, this outing is a real blast, and handily equals the previous Wright-Pegg-Frost collaborations. The end of the world has rarely been this much fun.

Excerpt: Quando a história passa do reino do improvável para o do fantástico, lentamente perde algum do brilho, torna-se desnecessariamente longa, mas oferece-nos magníficas cenas de acção e por vezes supera mesmo “Shaun of the Dead”. No fim sabe a pouco.
Excerpt: Although it exhibits nowhere near the level of inspired deconstructionist comic sophistication of “Shaun of the Dead” or “Hot Fuzz,” the latest effort from the writing team of Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright has enough witty panache to compensate for its failings.
