Every day, find the program of films and series to see on TV. This evening: a cult buddy cop movie, a new detective mini-series on France 2 and a thriller on Antwerp diamond dealers.
THE FILM OF THE DAY
After parodying zombie films in Shaun of the Dead, Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg tackle the action films that rocked their youth in Hot Fuzz. The title alone is a tribute to those of the 80s and 90s whose two words tell absolutely nothing of history, such as Die Hard, Lethal Weapon or Sudden Impact.
In this second part of the Cornetto trilogy (concluded in 2013 with The Last Pub Before the End of the World), the screenwriters have fun with the traditionally wise image of English police officers, dynamiting the genre of buddy movie thanks to the shocking duo embodied by Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. They thus sign a completely crazy police comedy, always full of references and humor, offering themselves, moreover, the presence of luxury guests: Timothy Dalton and his mustache, Cate Blanchett and his fascinating eyes or even Peter Jackson in a suit…particular.
