Story


In The World's End, 20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hellbent on trying the drinking marathon again. They are convinced to stage an encore by mate Gary King (Simon Pegg), a 40-year-old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their hometown and once again attempts to reach the fabled pub - The World's End. As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realise the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind's. Reaching The World's End is the least of their worries.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..it effectively masquerades, for almost half its running time, as a rueful, fast-moving comedy of middle-aged resignation and rebellion..”
by A.O. Scott [New York Times]
“..the film may dwell on the past - on youthful indiscretion, proper friendships, old-fashioned pubs, British teatime sci-fi and reckless boozing..”
by Tom Huddleston [Time Out]
“..the beauty of this movie, both a nostalgic romp and a futuristic scream, is its stubborn insistence on getting all the trapped-in-amber details right..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]
