Hot Fuzz (2007)
An accomplished London police officer is transferred to a small village, where he is soon faced with some mysterious deaths. From the Shaun of the Dead team, this is less the parody/homage expected, and more simply a well-calibrated combination of comedy and action. A bit overlong, and with an ill-suited hyperactive style – all fast cutting and an overdose of sound effects. But well-plotted (especially compared to most American films in the same genre) and quite amusing.
