Top cop Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) has been transferred from London to the quiet village of Sanford, where supposedly nothing much happens ... except for a series of accidents that in his eyes are anything but accidents. Thing is, Nicholas is more of a patrolman and not an investigating officer, and the investigating officers (Paddy Considine, Rafe Spall) rather believe in the accident-theory than actually do some work - and they are backed by their chief, inspector Butterman (Jim Broadbent).

The only one who actually believes in Nicholas' theories is the inspector's son, Danny (Nick Frost), who despite being a police officer knows most about police work from American action movies like Point Break or Bad Boys II and who hopes cooperating with Nicholas will lead to some exciting shoot-outs and chases.

Eventually, after witnessing the killer, a masked and hooded figure, kill another of his victims (Anne Reid), nicholas thinks he has it all figured out and tries to arrest the village's most powerful man, supermarket owner Skinner (Timothy Dalton), but this ends in humiliation when Skinner comes up with the perfect alibi.

Rather by chance though, Nicholas finds out that there was not only one but a whole group of killers, and they consist of the village's most respected citizens, including Skinner, the chief of police and the vicar (Paul Freeman).

Eventually, Nicholas can convince the whole police force about his theories, and they take up arms and fight the villains - in some over-the-top chases and shoot-outs that have to be seen to be believed.

Of course in the end good triumphs over evil, but that actually is besides the point.

 

You might not have guessed it from this synopsis, but Hot Fuzz is actually a comedy, and one that is at times pretty funny at that. Especially the action-packed finale is nothing short of exhilarating because of its (at times macabre) inventiveness. The whole film is a parody of pretty much every American cop action flick there is, with Simon Pegg playing the divorced cop who just can't turn off to the hilt. Unfotunately the film isn't quite as great as it should have been/could have been, a few too many too obvious pop culture references prevent that and an overzealousness to establish the main characters rather than just being funny, other scenes however are just priceless, but on the other hand the film has some great scenes not to be missed, and you certainly can't blame the film for trying ...
