The World's End

Description: Five childhood friends meet after twenty years apart. They are going to do a beer drinking marathon, visiting all the beer bars in their hometown. Their goal is to reach the last bar, called "The End of the World". Trying to come to terms with the past and the present, the friends realize that a great threat has arisen for the future of humanity. They become humanity's only hope for salvation.

The main heart of this film is the characters and their relationships with each other. I won't lie, some of the characters can feel a little stilted at the beginning, but the longer the movie goes on, the lovable they get. It's nice to see a movie about a Pub Crawl where the idea isn't just to drink beer in a lot of bars, but like we all do at some point, try to relive those moments of youth with friends. And about understanding that you and they are changing. The actors do their job wonderfully and Simon Pegg remains the magnet of this whole story. I think everyone in this film will find blossoming characters with whom you interacted as a teenager or now.

With many specialization effects and music choices, At World's End is the strongest in the trilogy, everything is really well done here. Many of the best scenes feel like well-rehearsed ideas from past films, although it certainly doesn't feel like everything has been seen before. This time, a story about aliens and body abductions, so not only do we get a good buddy comedy, but also a rather interesting parody of science fiction stereotypes.

As I mentioned, some of the characters can get a little choked up and compared to the previous two films, the finale of this story was not as strong as it seems to be. While it's a really good fantasy comedy, it's the weakest of the trilogy and feels the most wasted. Despite this, the film is excellent, it's just that many scenes from it are quickly forgotten, although I can repeat the past stories by heart, even if I woke up at 3 o'clock in the morning.

Overall - 8/10
