The World's EndFollow

If you like drinking, sci-fi, and/or comedy, you'll love the World's End. The special effects are cool, but the whole continuing the pub crawl despite the fact they figure out an invasion of some sort is happening leads to ,ore & more comedy.

What really surprised me was just how good the fight scenes were. Nick Frost & Simon Pegg do some serious **** kicking (While Pegg tries very, very hard not to spill his beer). Thumbs up.

I kind of wondered why this movie hadn't been brought up here. It got great reviews for a continuing saga type movie.

Is it necessary to see the second movie to get the most out of the third?

Nope, it's considered a "trilogy" but all three movies have separate storylines and characters.

You should still watch Hot Fuzz anyway.

Do the zombies happen before or after the robots?

I actually believe it goes Hot Fuzz, SotD, then The Worlds End. All would take place in the same universe, just a few years after each other.

And all the repeating characters are just clones of the stars of the 4th movie.
