Preview: ‘Hot Fuzz’ starring Simon Pegg

by W. Andrew Powell

From the team that brought us Shaun of the Dead comes a brand new action comedy that’s sure to amuse. Hot Fuzz stars Simon Pegg as London cop Nicholas Angel, who’s so good at his job that he puts the entire force to shame. Deciding to rid themselves of the embarrassment Angel causes, they decide to ship him off to the quiet and apparently crime-free village of Sandford.

Once there, Angel is teamed up with overeager police officer Danny Butterman (Nick Frost), who keeps hoping for the life of action that he’s always seen in the movies. Under the amiable supervision of Police Chief Frank Butterman (Jim Broadbent), Angel quickly becomes bored and annoyed with the quiet life.

Of course, Sandford turns out to be a town with a few secrets and when all hell breaks loose, no one is happier than Angel and Butterman.
