Have any of our members across the pond seen this movie yet, and if so, was it any good? I really want to see it, but it doesn't hit the U.S. and A. until April!

Went to see this sunday night. My opinion is that whjile it wasn't quite as good as Shaun Of The Dead, it was still bloody brilliant. Bear in mind the fact that I cansider Shaun to be one of those rare things - an absolutley flawless movie. Hot Fuzz provides many, many laugh out loud moments. However, I don't believe it will translate as well for our American friends. With Shaun, it was obviously recognisable as an open love letter to Romero's "of the Dead" movies, however, with Hot Fuzz's rural countryside location and very strong Bristolian accents (which for me provided many of the laughs by themselves, being from that area originally and once having that farmers twang) I feel some of the homour may be lost on American audiences.

So, like a said, not as good as Shaun, so a piss poor 9.5 out of 10.....Simon and Edgar must try harder

I'm very much looking forward to seeing this - especially after thoroughly enjoying Spaced and Shaun Of The Dead

It'll be interesting to see if they do another few movies along the lines of Shaun and Hot Fuzz (taking off Zombie and Police films) - it'd be superb if they decided next do a film on sci-fi - or even Star Wars...

I was utterly dissapointed with this. In fact, i left the cinema after half an hour in.

I was expecting maybe a girl on girl scene maybe, or perhaps a girl with 50 blokes or something, but no, it turned out to be a comedy about the filth, with them two guys out of Shaun of the Dead in it!!

I am looking forward to seeing this, as I actually used to live and go to school where it was filmed so I can see if I can recognise any parts of it as I havent been there for a while, and because I also enjoyed Shaun of The Dead whenever I watch it. I may try and catch it this weekend....
