The World's End
Gary King (Simon Pegg) is an immature 40-year-old who's dying to take another stab at an epic pub-crawl that he last attempted 20 years earlier. He drags his reluctant buddies back to their hometown and sets out for a night of heavy drinking. As they make their way toward their ultimate destination -- the fabled World's End pub -- Gary and his friends attempt to reconcile the past and present. However, the real struggle is for the future when their journey turns into a battle for mankind.

Occasionally coarse but never vulgar, it's the rare film with a thesis. Plus, there are all these cool robots and an apocalyptic theme. The five main characters may be schlubs, but they can -- by-gosh -- save humanity from a cosmic threat when they have to... See Full ReviewAugust 29th, 2013 · Details
The World's End isn't all drunken humor and bar fights. Wright and Pegg have delivered a film that's touching and sweet, without being overly so of either element. They also dish out film references - some subtle, others overt - as they did with Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, and in fact there's so much going on it's absolutely necessary to sit through multiple screenings...
