'The World's End'
(Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Paddy Considine, Martin Freeman, Eddie Marsan, et al / PG-13 / 149 mins)
Overview: Five lifelong friends reunite to complete a historic pub crawl from their youth, and find that reaching the fabled World's End tavern will be no simple undertaking while they also fight for the future of all mankind. Twenty years ago, Gary King (Simon Pegg) and his pals embarked on the ultimate drinking marathon.
Verdict: This is turning into the summer of sleeper comedies. The World's End is cheesy and fun! It's no Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, but The World's End is highly entertaining. Even though the story isn't anything to write home about, the execution is perfect. The scripting and comedic timing really make up for its simple plot.
At any given point in time, you can expect what will happen next, and if you don't, whatever does happen won't surprise you. What surprised me was how much I didn't care. I just kept laughing and smiling throughout the whole movie.
Simon Pegg really made this movie come together. His acting is perfect. The World's End is a great movie to enjoy with your friends. It might remind you of today or a time gone by. I wasn't sure I was going to watch it, but I'm glad I did.
