The World's End - first look review

It's not an ideology you'd expect to see spun into mainstream comedy in 2013. We have iPads now. We eat from gourmet burger stands. The merger between Brit Corp and the US Inc seems to have gone ahead smoothly. Yet here come Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright with The World's End - a satirical sci-fi comedy that chips away at modern Britain and raises a pint to an old English brand of messy eccentricity.

With Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz Pegg and Wright made a career out of delaying adolescence, propping pop culture against the door when the real world came knocking. The World's End is their best work since Spaced because - through Gary - they explicitly acknowledge the habit.
