As the previews' reveal, The World's End is about a group of five grade school friends, assembled by their old leader Gary King (Simon Pegg),to attempt to complete an outing they failed to finish in high school: "The Golden Mile," pints at a group of 12 pubs in their home town. Everyone has grown up since, except King and that becomes too great an issue fairly quickly. But once that is decided by the others to forfeit the youthful mission, it is realized that the town has also undergone a drastic change.
What follows is a sci-fi esque tale, with elements of revolution, rebellion, action, combat, bar brawls, romance, aliens, "robots," revelation and apocalypse.
Pegg's co-writer, the film's director, Edgar Wright does a very successful job of guiding the story in a way that never leaves you bored or questioning some of the logistical errors inherent in its unfolding. Pegg, along with co-stars Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, Eddie Marsan and Rosamund Pike all give outstanding performances as believable people who have known each other for too long and had too much to drink.
Although not as captivating or humorous as Shaun of The Dead or Hot Fuzz, The World's End is more relatable to those than lackluster Paul [link: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1092026/]. This is believed to be credited to the film's setting (Britain), as opposed to Paul's (Nevada).
Finally, this is believed to be a fitting end to the “http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three_Flavours_Cornetto_trilogy."
