The World’s End Upodcast Review

Any new feature by Edgar Wright is guaranteed to get us excited here at Upod and with the concluding part to the Cornetto trilogy, we have not been disappointed.

The action takes place in a sleepy English town when 5 friends (Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Paddy Considine, Eddie Marsan & Martin Freeman) re-enact a monstrous pub crawl around 12 of the local hostelries.  1990s British indie music provides the soundtrack and beer, several chasers and blue blooded robots provide the action.  Those of us familiar with Spaced or other Edgar Wright films, won’t be let down – there are plenty of references and appearances to whet our appetite – and for those of us less familiar with the genius, it’s just a plainly funny film, you don’t need the references.

Upod remains tight-lipped (at the director’s insistence) about plot and acting spoilers so even after listening, you’ll still be watching it as fresh as we did.  We will however let you know where this one stands in relation to the other two of the trilogy, how funny it REALLY is and what we think a bit more budget means for all concerned.  There are surely, no more fence-jumping jokes left to play!
