The World’s End
The adult male under his skin, always remains a dumbaby and the cinema
often reminds it to us. Edgar Wright deserves a place of honour in this
field, because when he manages this theme always does in exhilarating
way. Here with his trusted comrades Simon Pegg and Nick Frost to which
are also Martin Freeman, David Bradley, Michael Smiley, Paddy
Considine, Eddie Marsan and even Pierce Brosnan, he closes the
“cornetto trilogy” very well ("Shaun of the dead", " Hot
Males who do not want to grow, we said, males who try to live again the
past and who want to escape from reality. All well thought and built in
this horror and sci-fi comedy of 2013. References to "Invasion of the
Body Snatchers" and a little to "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy"
are not lacking in a work that in the first half an hour
(approximately), it seems a simple alcoholic comedy about a group of
friends, accompanied by 90’s pop/rock. The change comes suddenly
and in the paradoxical way that Wright has already shown us several
times. Several irresistible comic moments, a final that refers to the
"post-nuke" but also, it must be said, gags that in some cases do not
work and a monologue that unravels the whole affair a little too long.
But in any case "The World's End" remains a pleasant exercise in cinema
immersed in British comedy.
Gary King (played by the always excellent Pegg) was the coolest guy in
the Newton Heaven’s high-school, the usual sleepy suburb. The
rebel, the charming. The dumb. At the time of the school he and his
faithful friends Andy Knightley (Nick Frost), Steven Prince (Paddy
Considine), Oliver Chamberlain (Martin Freeman) and Peter Page (Eddie
Marsan) had tried to become legendary. That is, to walk the "golden
mile", drink a pint in all twelve pubs of the city, closing it all at
the "World’s End". However, the adventure failed.
Today, forty-year-old alcoholic and perennial dumbaby, Gary always has
in mind that missed goal (and the golden age of the school). His
friends, however, have a position, a serious job and a normal life.
Reluctant to the idea, they are convinced in various ways by Gary, the
only one who really believes in it. The adventure thus begins in the
stale New Heaven, between reminiscences, discussions and nice memories.
Everything seems to be going well, but in the fourth pub, Gary argues
in the bathrooms with a boy, discovering a terrible truth. The aliens
have invaded us and are replacing people. Thus began the fight against
the invader, but be clear, there is always the challenge of the "golden
mile" to be completed.
