Shorts: The World's End (2013)

Simon Pegg is middle-aged alcoholic Gary King. Gary's high point in life is night when he and four of his friends tried to do Golden Mile, bar tour with twelve different bars. They didn't made it that night. Gary want to try Golden Mile again with other four. Problem is that other four have moved on with their lives and become respectable citizens.

Gary lies other four to get them to come. When they get to their old home town they find something has changed. First they think it is them that has changed. But as night progresses they find out it the town that has changed. Then not only about completing the Golden Mile but making it alive. Less you know before watching better.

Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have good track record of making comedies of movie genres including Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead. This deserves its place on that list. I hope they don't stop with this. This was first time I realized how good actor Simon Pegg really is. He is so good in roles you don't even think he is acting.

I almost did video of this movie because ending was so clever. But I didn't want to spoil it to anyone who haven't seen the movie. Let's just say I really didn't see that coming.
