    Yes, I posted under Paddy Considine thread, it's just....meh... and I never thought Simon Pegg would be unlikeable, but boy is he in this.

    My life is highly stressful at the moment - so I seized on this for light relief - and after some initial laughs, it lost my goodwill very, very quickly. How to spoil a series (as I also noted in the Paddy Considine thread). The second half felt more like a substandard episode of modern Dr Who and the coda had me going... what the... ?!

    Yes we also thought it could have been an ep of Doctor Who what with
      Spoiler:
    the lights in the mouth, eyes etc.
    Such a shame that the final film in the trilogy by Edgar Wright, who's a superb action director, wasn't up to scratch. Simon Pegg is at his best being the likeable bumbler, not in this kind of part. It would have been better if Nick Frost had played Gary King.

    I don't intend to pay to see this movie but I am curious about the title. Does the name have some kind of metaphorical meaning?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World's_End

    Wiki suggests the name is given to extreme locations and that The World's End Tavern in London was named in 1690 when Camden Town was the end of London.

    really i must say, the movie was totally boring.
    the conception about the Robot also dont think make out the best.
    they tried really hard but i dont like it.
    all this type of drinking and the ending both totally pathetic.

    I saw the film a while ago, I found it watchable but it didn't really go anywhere so was not very satisfying, neither liked nor disliked it.
