Cornerstone (let’s not mince words) of the comedy modern already strong perfect SHAUN OF THE DEAD and HOT FUZZ, the “Cornetto Trilogy” of English Pegg and Wright bows out with a final pane. After the zombies and action movies, it is the turn of science-fiction and so-called “invasion” to take to his rank, from the blender of parody of the duo. And if one could be afraid of a certain decline in quality, a lack of honesty and free will, it is nothing, and I would be extremely surprised that a other comedy of the same level to happen this year.

As the Last Pub is a real bomb humorous. It connects the valves and other funny situations on a pace to be both crazy and controlled, managed with a master hand by the brilliant Edgar Wright. It introduces the characters, sets up a fight scene or attempts to foray into the Science-fiction pure and simple; the quality of the performance remains a constant, making no doubt of the Last Pub in the film with the most licked of its author.

But the joker is assured, what the film loses in spontaneity, he does not lose sense of humour. Largely worthy of the previous two tables, it connects the absurd situations and humorous, the image of the penultimate stage. Dialogue surreal and completely shifted, to the stake, the dramatic ubiquitous – it is when talking about the survival of humanity! – animated by a rhythm, paradoxically, drunk, fed and enhanced by the rantings of alcoholic characters.

Hilarious comedy, science-fiction film a thriller, a drama, THE LAST PUB BEFORE the END OF THE WORLD is any of this stuff at once, merging the best of all these genres.

But the previous titles were advocating a regression, pure and hard, THE LAST PUB BEFORE the END OF THE WORLD has the look of melancholy from a day of drinking. Simon Pegg, mind-boggling in the role of the adulescent Gary King is the incarnation. Inmate, Alcoholic, refusing to strictly apply the passage to the adult age and not living with no other purpose than to find his joys adolescent girls, it just as much as it affects, and it is not uncommon to find yourself moved between seizures of laughter.

And it is this which gives all its charm to the film. By daring to something more hard, more mature (twist end will surprise you), Edgar Wright evolves, changes its tone and transcends it. Our friends are now in quarantine, and it shows. More than a comedy, THE LAST PUB BEFORE the END OF THE WORLD is a true story of initiation treated as a comedy geek.

One can certainly criticize the film for its lack of relative creativity, it is a fact, the multiple self-references, sometimes to the death – sometimes breaks the immersion, and leave it on the floor a good number of non-insiders. But how to hide his pleasure in front of such a gathering of talent as sincere as the original? Hilarious comedy, science-fiction film a thriller, a drama, THE LAST PUB BEFORE the END OF THE WORLD is any of this stuff at once, merging the best of all these genres. One of the best films of the year, by far.
