arrest rates and has reduced crime. However, those above him are worried
that if he stays in London he will continue to make them and the rest
of the London police force look really bad. As a result of this PC Angel
is pushed out of London and into a sleepy Gloucstershire town of
Now Sergeant Angel, he teams up with a hapless PC named
Danny Butterman whose father is the towns chief of police. The Sandford
police force seems to have a way of punishment for inhouse problems,
and that is cake and ice cream.
Out and about on their daily
duties Danny is constantly asking Nicholas about aspects of his previous
action in London, curious to see what happens outside of a law abiding
town. Or is it really a law abiding community.
Two actors are
decapitated in a road traffic collision, which the community and police
are branding an accident. Sgt Angel on the other hand has his doubts,
doubts which are soon added on by further deaths in the community. Sgt
Angel is pushed out of town by the so called neighbour hood watch.
his return Sgt Angel with PC Butterman by his side take on the
neighbour hood in a shoot out. Only one side can be victorious.
Is it any good? - Nick Frost and Simon Pegg have a brilliant on screen relationship and
can bond their characters into what the writers have portrayed. They
compliment each other in different ways and make an excellent pairing.

dull rainy afternoon to a film you watch with a loved one and beyond. If
you want to laugh and I mean laugh, you must watch Hot Fuzz.
