Top London cop, Police Constable Nicholas Angel, finds himself reassigned to the sleepy West Country village of Sandford. With garden fetes and neighbourhood watch meetings replacing the action of the city, Angel struggles to adapt to his situation and finds himself partnered with Danny Butterman, an oafish but well meaning young Constable. Just as all seems lost, a series of grisly accidents motivates Angel into action. Convinced of foul play, ...more
A new comedy from the guys that created Shawn of the Dead, Hot Fuzz is out on DVD July 31st. In celebration of the DVD release, Universal Studios Home Entertainment has created the Sandford Standoff Shoot-Out Game.
Load up your ammo and bring big-city justice to the sleepy town of Sanford … where folksy villagers aren’t who they seem! Be careful, or you may shoot your best friend and end the game!
Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) is the finest cop London has to offer. With an arrest record 400% higher than any other officer on the force, he’s so good that he makes everyone else look bad. As a result, Angel’s superiors ship him off to the sleepy and seemingly crime-free village of Sandford. Once there, he is partnered with the well-meaning but over-eager police officer Danny Butterman (Nick Frost).
The son of amiable Police Chief Frank Butterman (Jim Broadbent), Danny is a huge action-movie fan and believes his new big-city partner might just be a real-life “bad boy,” giving him a chance to experience the life of gunfights and car chases he so longs for. As a series of grisly accidents rocks the village, Angel is convinced that Sandford is not what it seems. With the intrigue deepening, Danny’s dreams of explosive, high-octane, car-chasing, gun fighting, all-out action seem more and more like a reality. It’s time for these small-town cops to break out some big-city justice.
