Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Hot Fuzz is a 2007 British police action comedy film, and a Deconstructive Parody of, and homage to, American buddy cop movie tropes.Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) is the top London bobby who single-handedly keeps crime down. He is, in the words of his former girlfriend Janine (an uncredited and heavily disguised Cate Blanchett), incapable of "switching off" his police officer mode even while off duty.His superiors think he is doing too good a job, making the rest of the Met look bad, so they promote him out of the way and make him a sergeant in the sleepy town of Sandford, Gloucestershire. Sandford is the winner of the Best Village in Britain award for several years running; it is a village renowned for having no crime... but a lot of accidents. Being set in The West Country means all the typical stereotypes of that region are present, such as thick Somerset accents, farmer folk, tweed and wellies and some good old "Oo-ars!"Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Nick doesn't fit in at all; his duties are extremely banal, he immediately clashes with the laid-back cops there, and he is saddled with Danny Butterman (Nick Frost), a rather fat young police officer who desperately wants to be a Cowboy Cop like in the movies (Bad Boys II and Point Break (1991), to be precise).Then a series of grisly incidents occur, leading Angel to suspect foul play, and as he faces mounting opposition in his quest to solve this mystery, he begins to discover just how dark of a secret exists beneath Sandford's idyllic surface...Written by Edgar Wright (who directed), starring Simon Pegg (who co-wrote) and co-starring Nick Frost (who plays Danny), this film is quite the troperiffic endeavor, as it spends its first two thirds debunking and poking fun at the real-life applications of common buddy cop tropes...right before going full throttle on them and applying every one of them to a T... while still keeping up with parodying them. It's also filled with Ho Yay; even its creators indulged in writing slashfic on Twitter.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })Second part of Wright's "Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy" (or "Cornettos Trilogy" as it is sometimes called), preceded by Shaun of the Dead and followed by The World's End.Compare the earlier Bad Eggs and Kopps, and later The Other Guys and 21 Jump Street.

Artistic License – Gun Safety
 Hot Fuzz / int_10134c97
comment
Artistic License – Gun Safety: Nick Angel sure demonstrates atrocious gun safety for an uber-competent cop. The rest of the cops are no better. Intentional, given the subject parody matter. Even funnier when one pauses certain parts of gun battles. One of the cops closes one eye while aiming, but the eye that's closed is the one that's supposed to be looking down the sights. However, Reality Ensues in the climax, when Danny drops his shotgun on the ground and it goes off. Even if Danny did it intentionally.

Anyone Can Die: In Sandford, that is, and for the most petty of reasons. Subverted at the end when the sea mine destroys the station. Weaver is undoubtedly killed, but everyone else, even the hedgehog from the riot room, survives the explosion.

comment
Human Shield: Skinner tries it, only to have the shield bite him in the hand and make a break for it. Also, Angel uses Danny as a shield/hostage, only for the Big Bad to call his bluff. The final fight reverses their roles, and Nick calls out the Big Bad, Frank Butterman, saying that since this all started with the death of his wife, he couldn't let it end with the death of his son.

Heel–Face Door-Slam: One possible interpretation for Leslie Tiller moving away and her death. She was part of the conspiracy but was leaving the town and the NWA. Skinner does seem rather emotionless when he says he's paying for her funeral. She gets killed before Nick can determine if she was redeeming herself.

Never Trust a Trailer
 Hot Fuzz / int_19ebe383
comment
Never Trust a Trailer: The promotional materials made out the movie to be a send up of Buddy Cop Action movies, but a significant chunk of the film is an equally well-done send up of Slasher Movies. Well, before the ending. Most of the second act can be seen as a send-up of British tea-cosy mysteries as well.

Say My Name: Nicholas gives a shocked "Danny!" to Danny right before Danny stabs him. Frank goes "Angel" when he realizes that Nicholas is alive after Danny stabbed him. In the pub, Angel shoots the bear trap, causing it to fall on Roy Porter's head. Mary Porter's reaction is to scream, "ROY! Somebody call the police!" Andy Cartwright yells "ANDY!" when the other Andy seems to have been hit in the face. Andy Wainwright shouts back, "It's all right, Andy! It's just bolognese!" And finally, when Skinner charges at Angel with the box-cutter, he gives a loud and very hammy "AAAAAAANGEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!"

Conditioned to Accept Horror
 Hot Fuzz / int_1b465242
comment
Conditioned to Accept Horror: Frank Butterman has brainwashed the townsfolk to write off any suspicious death as "just another accident". This also undermines the instincts of an imported officer like Angel or the unfortunate Popwell, who begin to doubt the reality of what they are seeing, especially when Frank pretends to be sympathetic to their suspicions and investigate the murders, only to seemingly turn up nothing.

The Cameo
 Hot Fuzz / int_1b65dfad
comment
The Cameo: Cate Blanchett as Nick's ex-girlfriend, and Peter Jackson as a homicidal Santa Claus (both uncredited—and Blanchett wears a face mask and a full-body hazmat suit!). Edgar Wright, the director and co-writer, also has a brief moment as a supermarket worker pushing a trolley, at the supermarket where he used to work. The exteriors were shot in the director's home town. The Best Village judges are played by Simon Pegg's mum, Edgar Wright's mum, and Wright's former drama teacher. Ian Holm has a brief non-speaking appearance as a medic after the model village fight. Martin Freeman, Steve Coogan, and Bill Nighy each make two very brief appearances as Nick's superior officers. Coogan's is even uncredited. Stephen Merchant appears as P.I. Staker.

Reality Ensues
 Hot Fuzz / int_1d9a2764
comment
Reality Ensues: Nick is the Logical Latecomer who notices a series of strange events in the town, which he considers possible murders, for this reason. He notes that people in a horrific car crash don't have only their bodies intact after losing their heads, and the car shows little damage. With the second "accident," Nick points out that the man in question was too drunk to start a fire, given he needed two people to help him home and was tucked into bed. And with Tim Messenger, statues don't just fall randomly from the sky as they're about to talk about an important story with a bobby. Conversely, the police officers dismiss him because they've seen such accidents all their lives and Nick is known for being extremely paranoid. In fact, the Andys have a Wait, What? reaction when Nick points out in the climax that there's a large number of accidents in this town and not many homicides and note it is very strange. This is ultimately what defeats the NWA. Yes the police in the town are pretty useless and oblivious to Nick's growing suspicions that there may be a killer in their midst. They also suit up in riot gear when a shootout occurs, and the local civilians are firing at Nick, trying to get both of them to put down their guns. None of the cops are so stupid as to ignore that a bunch of civilians drew the first shot at Nick and when Danny reveals his dad is part of the NWA, the new guard turns on Butterman. After the climax, the film switches to the cops doing reams of paperwork. This is a double subversion. Angel explains how action movies don't make sense, but in the climax it acts like a standard action movie and then goes back to being realistic. After his encounter with the deranged Father Christmas, Nicholas is still performing physical therapy to get his hand back up to full strength as the movie commences. Nick was Kicked Upstairs because the other policemen in London were afraid that he was making them look bad. Their crime rates skyrocket because they aren't as good as Nick and he was making most of the arrests.

Lawful Stupid
 Hot Fuzz / int_1e12b5b7
comment
Lawful Stupid: Nick gets this occasionally, most notably when he spies on the NWA at the castle, listening to their explanation of how they murdered a large number of people, including a police officer who was on to them, and then pulls out his badge and tells them they are all under arrest, as if they would really listen to him. Not to mention he wasn't even carrying a gun. (Of course, he only knew Skinner was waiting there...) This is a fairly large part of Angel's character in general throughout the movie; while he's certainly no imbecile, he is overly devoted towards following the rules and regulations to extremes at times, thus coming off as a rather anal and humourless individual.

Stealth Pun: A blink-and-you'll-miss-it dirty Visual Pun at the very beginning of the town fair scene. Doris and the two men she's with see the hog-roast on a spit, to which she comments, "That's me after a few pints!" A man called Nicholas is stabbed by a man dressed as Santa. The first song in the movie, which plays as Nicholas Angel introduces himself, is called "Goody Two-Shoes". They kill the Messenger. Tim Messenger, that is. When Nick mentions at one point he always wanted to be a cop, he briefly notes an exception in the summer of 1979, when he wanted to be Kermit the Frog. Why then? That was when The Muppet Movie came to cinemas.

Ominous Latin Chanting
 Hot Fuzz / int_1fdaf8ff
comment
Ominous Latin Chanting: When Nicolas comes to arrest the killers, he finds the Neighbourhood Watch Association chanting "Bonum Communae Communitatis", Latin for "The common good of the community". It is the Latin motto of Sanford and it is also loosely translated as "The greater good of the community". "Dies irae, dies illa," can be heard in the run-up to Tim Messenger getting splattered. It means "Day of anger, day of wrath," and is part of a section used in the Requiem (Mass for the Dead/Funeral Mass). It serves as Foreshadowing for Tim's death being his punishment for inciting the NWA's wrath by attempting to "rat" on Sandford's conspirators/the highest authority.

 Hot Fuzz / int_21e5b9c7

Failed a Spot Check: Angel walks right out of police headquarters with a crapload of guns from the evidence room and strolls right by Frank's big-windowed office with Frank none the wiser. It takes the shopkeeper to finally notice, and by then, he's already in the town centre. He doesn't go entirely unnoticed, however; Sgt. Turner at the desk does inform Angel that he has a call from London, but a moment of having Angel glower at him fully tooled up and ready to unleash hell is enough to convince him to leave it well alone. It seems like Angel and Danny constantly miss spotting the killer, though it's partially excusable—the first time the killer was at the end of a dark alley, and the second had both men a bit tipsy.

Chekhov's Boomerang: At first, the swan is a wild swan chase through Sandford. Later on, when trying to apprehend a shoplifter, the swan pops up again, forcing Nicholas to choose: swan or shoplifter (he chooses shoplifter). It pops up again near the end as the obstruction in the road that ends the car chase. At this point, Angel finally gets the swan in a police cruiser. However, it still isn't finished; serving its last purpose by keeping Frank Butterman from getting away from Sandford.

Chekhov's Gun
 Hot Fuzz / int_22cf536c
comment
Chekhov's Gun: Among others, a swan and a Sea Mine. Yes, a sea mine. Also... Early on in the movie, there are a pair of swords on the hotel wall, and a pair of antique pistols and a Victorian police cloak in Frank Butterman's office; Frank dons the Victorian cloak when he appears at the NWA meeting; the weapons are both used in the epic battle near the end, Bernard with the swords and Frank with the guns. The Village of the Year competition is mentioned twice early on (first by the Met Inspector, then again by Tom Weaver). It comes back with a vengeance as it turns out the murders are to try and get rid of anyone who might spoil the village's chance of winning. Sandford's model village. Mentioned a few times early on (a sign Angel sees when he first arrives in Sandford, then mentioned in a jokey comment by DC Cartwright), then it appears at the end of the climax, where Angel fights Skinner and Frank is prevented from fleeing the town. Sgt. Popwell is mentioned by Frank to have had "A GREAT BIG BUSHY BEARD!" This is how his body is identified when Angel falls into the catacombs where the threats to the "Village of the Year" Award are disposed of The paper bin, which the Andys usually throw at people's heads (notably at Nick and Danny). Nick later uses it to knock out Weaver after he storms in and shoots Danny. He stumbles backwards into the Evidence Room, falling on the sea mine and causing it to detonate. Angel's notebook. He points out to Danny that it has saved his skin more times than he can care to mention. It later does exactly that when Danny stabs him, going hand-in-hand with the Chekhov's Skill involving a packet of ketchup hidden in the notebook. The church roof. The swear box in the Sandford police station is there to raise funds to repair the roof. At the village fete, part of a spire from the roof is removed and used to kill Tim Messenger. Two that are fired in quick succession: Angel's Japanese peace lily and the cuddly toy monkey he wins at the village fete. When Michael ambushes and attacks Angel in his hotel room, Angel distracts Michael with the monkey (according to Danny he has the mind of a child, so it works well), then smashes the peace lily on Michael's head, knocking him out. Mr. Treacher's coat. Angel points out early on to Danny that he may be using it to hide something. He is, namely a shotgun, which he uses in the climax. The stab-proof vest plays a part in Danny pretending to stab Angel to death when he's cornered by the NWA (as does Angel's notebook), and again when he's shot in the chest by the Reverend. Strangely enough, the vest seems as though it would be relevant again, but "misfires" — when Skinner rushes Angel with a box-cutter at the end, you expect it to come into play, but Skinner slips on something before he can actually stab Nicholas.

Aborted Arc: The hoodies that frequently show up in the movie are led by the grandson of an NWA member, making it all the more horrific when the Alliance talks about killing them later. This subplot was presumably cut for time.

Ironic Echo: About half the dialog in the last half-hour or so qualifies, including "You're a doctor. Deal with it." and "What're you thinkin'?" "Pub?" And the Greater Good. "Fascist." "Hag." No More Than One Schoolchild Allowed in the Shop At a Time. "Do you want anything from the shop?" "Crusty jugglers!" "A great big bushy beard!!!" A literal echo. "That Sergeant Angel's back... check out his horse." note "Horse" makes a perfect pun on "arse" in a West Country accent. "Mornin'" "We begged him to make his house in keeping with the village's rustic aesthetic." "Very good. What he said." "No luck catching those swans/killers, then?" "It's just the one swan/killer, actually." "What He said."

comment
Funny Background Event: After the sea-mine fails to detonate, when Angel is reporting Mr. Webley's weapons stash back to the station Webley and Danny can be seen cheerfully kicking and whacking it about behind him. Skinner's smile after telling Nicholas to look through the security footage perfectly mirrors the photo of himself directly behind him, and later one of security cameras shows him holding a newspaper. Any time Nicholas is doing his "top cop" schtick and Danny's in the shot, he's shown reacting and learning from it. In the climax, as Nick rides into Sandford, strapped to the neck on a horse, determined to take care of business, he's just under the banner for Sandford's Village of the Year banner. Which says "Good Luck, Sandford!" An audio version. During Angel's fight in the supermarket with Lurch, Doris can be heard in the background shooting at the butchers and screaming "DIE YOU BASTARD TWINS".

Thou Shalt Not Kill: Unlike most violent cop films that this film parodies, Nicholas Angel and his allies in the climactic action finale never shoot to kill. All the villains survive to be cooped up in jail, even though the final showdown with the villain is pretty gory. With the exception of Tom Weaver, who most certainly died, though that actually was an accident. Also, it is out-right stated that Mrs. Tiller was part of the NWA. She gets killed by her own when she tries to move away.

Pedal-to-the-Metal Shot: Used to demonstrate Nicholas' Character Development: He starts off as a By-the-Book Cop who always drives safely and avoids profanity, but towards the end of the film, he evolves into a mild case of a Cowboy Cop. In a particular scene, Nicholas jumps into a police car and yells "Punch. That. Shit!" to his partner Danny. The line is synced to a montage of Danny a) flipping on the blue lights, b) fastening the seat belt, c) flooring the gas pedal.

Actor Allusion: There are multiple references to Simon Pegg and Nick Frost playing the leads of Shaun of the Dead. "What are you thinking?" "...Pub?" The Cornettos. "Yeeeeeaaaah boy!" Unlike Shaun, Angel knows what "exacerbate" means. "What's the matter? Haven't you ever take a shortcut before?" Danny almost points out to Nicholas that he's got red on him; Nicholas stops him from speaking. Just before dying, Tom Weaver mutters "Oh god", just as he did in The Wicker Man (1973).

This is also shown at the end of the movie to show the Character Development of both main characters. Danny is the one to make the vocab guideline correction, showing that he's starting to take the not-so-action-packed moments of being a police officer a little more seriously, as he actually knows some of the guidelines. Angel is then the one who responds with a Double Entendre, showing that he's not taking himself quite so seriously anymore, and isn't as obsessed with being a model police officer every single moment of every day.

Skewed Priorities: Played for Drama throughout the course of the film. Seemingly no one in the entire village cares about the fact that there seems to be a murderer on the loose, and happily joke about it. Meanwhile, many of them act like the biggest criminals are the crusty jugglers and that damn Living Statue. During the investigation of George Merchant's death, Tim Messenger approaches Nick in order to ask him...what his ideal Sunday would be like, not for information about the situation they're investigating. Luckily, Sgt. Fisher deals with Messenger. The first thing Danny says when he sees Lurch unconscious on Angel's floor, having been knocked out with the peace lily is "Oh my God! What happened to your peace lily?"

Queer Flowers: The relevant lines and peace lily plotline originally meant for a cut female love interest were given to Danny. At the beginning of the film, Nicholas's ex-girlfriend complains he's Married to the Job and he'll someday find someone to open up to. This ends up being Danny, who gets Nicholas to loosen up, drink, laugh, and watch action movies. Danny is instantly a fanbody of Nicholas, staying loyal to him to the point of defying his own father. Word of God says the romantic implications were deliberate.

Returning to the Scene: Skinner always shows up to the scene of the murders, despite having no business being there.

Brainwashed: Played with. Angel says outright that Frank had brainwashed the police officers into believing that all the murders going on were really accidents. They weren't good old mind-slaves, it worked like a Weirdness Censor, which they all snapped out of when Angel finally pulls the wool from over their eyes. It helps that they all seem a bit dim.

Heroes Gone Fishing: Even before Angel learns to switch off he does this on occasion, as he likes to tend to his Japanese peace lily, and on his first morning in Sandford he's out for a morning jog. The Sandford Police Service go to the pub on Angel's first day, much to Angel's consternation, since he wants to work. Danny has a habit of doing this even on the job, as he enjoys getting things from the shop like Cornettos, checking out the DVDs at Somerfield, and when we first see him he's enjoying a few pints in the pub. He tries to get Angel to do this too by taking him to the pub after they confiscate Webley's haul, where they both consume a few pints. And then when they get back to Danny's place, Danny gets them both to watch Point Break (1991) and Bad Boys II.

Just when Angel realizes that there must be more than one killer, he's attacked by Skinner's brutish thug, who tells him to rendezvous at a castle after believing Nicholas to be disposed of. Once Nicholas gets there, it turns out that in fact almost the entire town is in on it.

The Coroner Doth Protest Too Much: All of these brutal deaths that were "accidents". Subverted, as Sandford does not have a coroner. It only has a doctor; who in fact is involved in all the murders at best. And Dr. Hatcher bears a striking and ever so slightly worrying resemblance to Dr. Harold Shipman, who was found guilty of the murder of 15 of his patients. It's been said that the similarity between the two is entirely coincidental... but then they would say that, wouldn't they?

Simon Skinner, the Smug Snake manager of the local supermarket, is clearly being set up to be either the villain, or a red herring with the actual villain being one of the eccentric village types the protagonist encounters. Angel even constructs a plausible motive involving adultery, greed, envy, and a land deal threatening his business. It turns out that all the eccentric locals, including Skinner, are involved, but are doing these killings for incredibly petty reasons that in some way threaten the village's image.

Disproportionate Retribution: Sergeant Angel is convinced there must be some kind of complicated conspiracy linking a series of gruesome "accidents". It turns out that they were all killed for incredibly minor infractions the Neighborhood Watch Alliance deemed a threat to the town's perfect reputation. For example, Tim Messenger, the newspaper editor, was killed because he had a habit of making typos, and the actress was killed because she had a most peculiar laugh. And also inverted. After Danny almost drunkenly runs over Angel, he's punished by... having to buy the other officers ice cream for a month. When Angel and Danny start taking down the NWA members, Frank orders Angel's arrest and orders Danny to step away from him. Danny refuses, stating he won't take orders from Frank any more. Frank promptly orders Danny's arrest as well as Angel's.

Surprise Creepy: This seemingly innocuous buddy cop comedy suddenly gets a couple of pretty graphic slasher-horror scenes, but they don't last very long and are immediately followed by laughs. But then holy shit the reveal. Turns out there was not a single murderer, but several, all members of the Neighbourhood Watch Alliance, A.K.A. most of the nice, neighborly villagers. These people are obsessed with winning the "Village of the Year" award, and will resort to kill anyone, including children, to secure the award. And then, of course, we get a couple jokes and then we drop the horror entirely to focus on action.

Badass Driver: Nick improved his skill base with courses in advanced driving and advanced cycling. These skills (at least the first ones) come in very handy later, as he is embroiled in several high-speed car chases. Danny later gets in on the act after constantly irritating Angel with questions about high-speed chases (he probably got his license after cutting his teeth on those very roads, too.)

Affably Evil: Inspector Butterman and Simon Skinner. The latter borders on Faux Affably Evil, however. Before the NWA begin their nighttime meeting, they have to make a quick announcement—a couple in the town have named their new born children, and they are all invited to the Christening.

Logo Joke: On the UK release, the sirens going off at the beginning are timed to go along with the Universal Pictures logo as the word UNIVERSAL makes its way around the globe. This does not happen in the US release, due to Universal releasing the film through its sub-label Rogue Pictures.

Played straight and subverted, as Angel is remarkably good at shooting to disable. The best example would be shooting the strings of a flowerpot above a woman's head with a rifle from several yards away, which neatly severs the chain without damaging the pot or the beam they're hanging on. Subverted when he goes diving through the air, Guns Akimbo, in classic Woo style, and hits bugger-all... which is exactly what happens when you try that in real life.

Let's Get Dangerous!: Happens symbolically with Nicholas, who was already dangerous but gets over his reluctance for gunplay in order to play Cowboy Cop in the last act, and overtly with Danny, who doesn't show any particular aptitude for police procedure until called on to behave like an action hero, which he does magnificently. Played straight with the rest of the police force, who dress up in riot gear when they see a shootout between the townsfolk and one cop. When Nick convinces them that they've been brainwashed, they turn against Butterman and help take down the rest of the NWA.

Dick Dastardly Stops to Cheat: It's pretty likely that the NWA didn't need to do what it does to win Village of the Year. Naturally, part of it is that they want to remove any possibility of losing face, but their actions (once discovered, anyway) undoubtedly cause a lot more damage to the town's reputation than any of the people they killed.

Freeze-Frame Bonus: Several involving the Funny and Meaningful Background Events. The commendations on Angel's wall are for his exemplary acts of heroism for Operations Crackdown, Shakedown and Takedown. An early one is Tony Fisher's introduction. The bubble chart is neatly framed behind his head with various negative terms pointing to him such as "Unfit", "Disloyal", "Indecisive", and "Lacks Leadership Skills". The first movie in the Trilogy, Shaun of the Dead can be very briefly seen in the DVD Bucket in the Supermarket, renamed “Zombies Party” with a price sticker covering Simon Pegg’s face. A shopkeeper asks Nick "any luck finding those killers?" - in the very corner of the shot is a poster of the album Hot Fuss by The Killers. Skinner has a brother called Stephen, according to the Skinner family tree in the Sandford Citizen.

Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Simon Skinner has his cousin, Leslie Tiller. He is the only one to show any semblance of regret at her death, saying that her death was a terrible shame when Angel uncovers the conspiracy. Not that it stopped him from letting the NWA kill her. Roy and Mary Porter are part of the NWA and married, as are Joyce and Bernard Cooper. And before he's revealed as evil, Frank has his son, Danny. In fact, it was his wife's suicide that led to the conspiracy in Sandford in the first place.

Meaningful Name
 Hot Fuzz / int_6bda9a30
comment
Meaningful Name: A well stocked armoury is found in the barn of a man named Webley. Several of the characters' names have violent meanings. Skinner, Shooter, Reaper, Staker (who doesn't engage in any violence). Eve Draper is clearly named for Evelyn Draper in Play Misty for Me. Her lover's name is Blower. And according to the DVD commentary, Eve Draper's name comes from the word eavesdropper, that being what she is in her private life, and fiance Blower is a solicitor, which means he blows a lot of hot air. Also, according to village gossip, Eve has draped herself over lots of older men. Of course, Blower also accurately describes the quality of his performance at the theater. PC Doris Thatcher, the only woman on the force, is most likely named for Margaret Thatcher, who was at the time the UK's first female Prime Minister (there's since been another, Theresa May). A doctor who delivered Danny is named Hatcher. A florist is named Tiller. A journalist is named Messenger. A successful businessman is named Merchant. According to the trivia track, most of the people in the village still carry traditional tradesman's names in order to indicate the lack of intermarrying (and therefore purity) of their family lines, pointing to their severe xenophobia. In a sneaky example, the giant generally known as Lurch is mentioned offhand to be named Michael Armstrong. Nicolas Angel, the central character who is a police officer with strong set of moral principles. He was relocated to Sandford and discovers a horrible secret during his stay. Danny Butterman too, given he's an obese man. (not his father, though) "Sandford, Gloucestershire" is the name given to the sample town that appears in the UK Police Service's tests, showing that Angel is being sent to the UK's idea of an archetypical podunk Middle-of-Nowhere Street.

Casting Gag
 Hot Fuzz / int_6ec4232f
comment
Casting Gag: In addition to Timothy Dalton, several key members of the NWA were cast because their actors had famously played the bad guy at one point, thus hinting at their true nature in the film: Billie Whitelaw (Mrs. Cooper) was the sinister Satanist nanny of Damien in The Omen. Stuart Wilson (Dr. Hatcher) was the corrupt cop/gun-runner in Lethal Weapon 3. Paul Freeman (Rev. Shooter) was Indiana Jones's rival archaeologist Belloq in Raiders of the Lost Ark, and Ivan Ooze, the crazy purple (and notably, non-Sentai based villain from Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers: The Movie. And while not quite a bad guy, Edward Woodward (Professor Weaver) famously played another overly-straitlaced cop who found himself investigating sinister doings revolving around a fanatical cult of small villagers.

Real Joke Name: Sergeant Nicholas Angel receives a rather odd call: The Andies joke that if they need to interview a victim's clients, they may as well talk to everyone in the village, since he did business with everyone. They suggest opening up the phonebook and starting with Aaron A. Aaronson. At the end of the movie, Angel saves a boy who introduces himself as Aaron A. Aaronson; Angel does a Double Take.

Gaslighting

comment
Gaslighting: This is how Inspector Butterman deals with tenacious cops like Angel and his predecessor, Popwell: to discredit their suspicions by a combination of brainwashing the locals into disregarding any unusual death as an accident, and having the killers skulk around in dark cloaks just out of the officer's view in order to make it seem they're seeing things. Once they've become completely untrusted, they have a fatal "nervous breakdown".

Nick gets this occasionally, most notably when he spies on the NWA at the castle, listening to their explanation of how they murdered a large number of people, including a police officer who was on to them, and then pulls out his badge and tells them they are all under arrest, as if they would really listen to him.

Curse Cut Short: One that actually turns out to be a plot point: Nicholas cuts her short before she can say "himself", postponing The Reveal that "Cousin Sissy" is actually Simon Skinner.

Obviously Evil
 Hot Fuzz / int_7c0bfb83
comment
Obviously Evil: Skinner, Skinner, Skinner. Angel immediately suspects him, thankfully, but his obvious evil ends up obfuscating the fact that he's not the only murderer. His very introduction was designed with this trope specifically in mind. The filmmakers had the old expression "X may as well have had a sign saying BAD GUY over his head, it was so obvious!" in mind, and wanted to frame and block the scene so that something in a sign over a shop in the background when Skinner runs up to meet Angel actually caused it to look like that was happening. But try as they might, they just couldn't pull it off, so they nixed the idea and instead just had his first line be, "Arrest me; I'm a slasher!"

Sudden Downer Ending: Subverted. Everyone is laughing and joking in the station while doing paperwork, when Weaver comes out of nowhere, shoots Danny with a blunderbuss, and then accidentally sets off a naval sea mine, blowing himself and the police station up. Amid the rubble, Angel runs over to Danny, telling him everything is going to be fine, and then the film fades to one year later, where Angel, now settled into his cottage, is laying flowers at a grave reading "IN MEMORY OF _____ BUTTERMAN" where the blank is obscured by Nicholas's shoulder. Nicholas says he hopes that the flowers are okay, and Danny steps out, alive and well, to say they're perfect - the grave is revealed to be that of Danny's mother, Irene. Danny and Nick then go off on a patrol together.

comment
Large Ham: Simon Skinner, the supermarket proprieter. With repeated viewings, it becomes apparent that Timothy Dalton decided the best way to play his deliciously evil character was to ham it up like Shatner. Everything from his tone of voice to his facial expressions to his body language is carefully calculated to take it up to eleven, and it's also plain that Dalton is absolutely loving every minute of it. Not many of his roles give him a chance to kick it up to the stratosphere like this one, and he was not about to let the opportunity pass. "SWANNNNNN!" That line alone should have earned him an Oscar. Danny, who is really enthusiastic about everything. Him imitating the Firing in the Air a Lot scene of Point Break and later doing it himself is a standout. Angel himself hams it up at the end with his Guttural Growling and his hardboiled attitude.

 Hot Fuzz / int_8391b1c7
comment
Artistic License – Law: Or rather law enforcement: A real life police officer certainly can't be forced to move from one police force to another. They can't be forcibly promoted either; an officer has to sit exams to move up to Sergeant. Sandford has its own police force, like an American small town. In real life, it would be policed by Gloucestershire Constabulary. Because police forces have to have at least 1,000 employees, even large towns are too small to have a separate police force. That means that if the police need to deploy firearms in a place like Sandford, they would send in units of full-time firearms officers, rather than allowing the local officers to use them.

Rouge Angles of Satin
 Hot Fuzz / int_83ea0763
comment
Rouge Angles of Satin: Tim Messenger, the reporter from the local newspaper, is guilty of a lot of typos. Including the "angle" one. (Poor Nicholas.) This is the reason the council kills him. Comes back in a classic Edgar Wright Mundane Made Awesome montage later, where we see Angel researching possible motives for the killings, and he circles all the newspaper's spelling mistakes. So he was closer to the motive than he realised.

 Hot Fuzz / int_853b7948
comment
Ambiguously Evil: Leslie Tiller is a member of the NWA, and while they do kill her it's unrevealed if she had been privy to their crimes beforehand. The fact that she wanted to move out of town could mean that she didn't love it as much as they did -in which case they might never have recruited her to their cause- or could mean she had undergone a Heel Realization and was a Defector from Decadence.

Broken Pedestal: Uncle Derrick Angel. He inspired his nephew to be a cop... and later got arrested for selling drugs to students. Which makes for some nice foreshadowing, since Danny also became a cop because of a close male relative (his father) and sees that role model go bad too.

Bait-and-Switch: Done at the end of the movie. After the mine explodes in the police station, Angel is seen cradling a wounded Danny, then the film cuts to Angel visiting a gravestone with the name "Butterman". Turns out it's Danny's mother's grave, and he is alive, standing behind Angel.

Back from the Dead

The entire NWA has this reaction when Angel rolls back into town, on horseback no less, fully armed, after they thought he had died from being stabbed in the heart. Their faces really give off the sense of someone who has seen someone not only come seemingly Back from the Dead, but someone so relentlessly determined that they literally refuse to die.

The Voiceless: Mr. Treacher has no lines and makes hardly a sound except for a few exclamations of shock when a few barrels in the climax knock him over and knock him out on the road. According to the trivia track, his actor was deaf. Subverted with Bernard Cooper, as he is asleep when we first see him. Then he yells as he fights Angel with the sword, and shouts "Ow, my hip!" when Angel takes him down.

Laser-Guided Karma: After covering up their victims' deaths as "accidents," three of the villains at the end of the film wind up becoming victims of actual accidents. Also for the three inspectors at the Met who transferred Nick to Sandford because he made everyone look bad; at the end of the film, they ask him to return, as crime has grown incredibly since they got rid of him. Partly because he likes Sandford now, and partly for revenge, Nick turns them down.

The Perils of Being the Best: Judging by both Nicholas and his predecessor Sergeant Popwell, being the best cop in London means that the rest of force gets upset with you for making them look bad in comparison, gets them to unite against you and get you Reassigned to Antarctica/Kicked Upstairs. Tall Poppy Syndrome is always fun to wrestle with.

It's Personal: Two examples with Danny, a third with Andy Cartwright, all during the climax. One of Amanda Paver's gunshots hits Angel in the shoulder. Danny sees this from his police car, and he angrily invokes a Toyota Tripwire moment by flinging open his car door and flipping her off her bike. Then he has a Big "NO!" upon seeing Reverend Shooter shoot Angel, and shoots him before seeing that Angel is OK thanks to his stab vest. The third example occurs when Angel, Danny and the rest of the Service (bar Frank) storm the supermarket. One of the butcher twins throws a knife, smashing a jar of bolognese. Andy Cartwright screams "ANDY!", thinking the other Andy has been hit in the face, and angrily opens fire on the twins, before Andy Wainwright shouts he's OK, and the red stuff on him is bolognese sauce.

Mood Whiplash: The movie likes to play with this, usually to help increase dramatic tension or humor value. ** Sergeant Angel just got done relating his origin story in a heartwarming moment of bonding. Then Danny STABS HIMSELF IN THE EYE WITH A FORK!? Then he reveals it was a ketchup packet. From heartwarming to horrific to hilarious. Upon rumbling the people behind it all, Angel escapes through a tunnel filled with the skeletons of their victims. Pretty creepy... until he happens across the body of the living statue, who is overacting his own death, and, as a result, looks far too ridiculous to sustain the tension.

Rule of Three: When Danny and Angel go to Annette Roper's shop for Cornettos, she asks Danny, "No luck catching them killers, then?", to which Danny replies, "Um, it's just the one killer, actually." This echoes in Angel's head three times as he gets a Eureka Moment.

Imperial Stormtrooper Marksmanship Academy: One of the villains has a clear shot at Nicholas from short-range at an elevated position using a scoped rifle. Despite this, she doesn't use the scope and misses him several times. Justified, as she (and all the other NWA members) are used to killing with blades, so they likely have no experience with firearms. They simply just happen to own a shitload of guns. Of the dozens of shots fired, only three actually hit Nicholas, and none do much damage.

The Friend Nobody Likes: Angel is actually despised by the other police officers in London because of how devoted Angel is to justice, which makes them feel redundant and inferior. His personal relationships were also indifferent to his move to Sandford, as they too were irritated by his dedication to the job. Angel is aware of this and is saddened by his inability to "switch off".

 Hot Fuzz / int_a9de87d2
comment
Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: The Sandford Police Service pull themselves together for the final battle; whatever their individual faults, they turn out to be really good at armed response. In particular, Tony Fisher seems to be inept, at best, (even Lampshaded in his introduction) until it comes to assaulting the supermarket, where his tactical analysis surprises even Angel. And of course, Danny, being the Deuteragonist, has this in spades. He's at first shown to be mostly inept (Even possibly by the Sandford Police's standards), being a Manchild obsessed with action movies with a hero worship of Nicholas despite a seeming inability to keep his mind on the job. But even before the third act he saves Nicholas' life, shows he's indeed been paying attention to all Nicholas was teaching him and spends the rest of the movie showing his mettle.

Weirdness Censor: Danny rescues Angel from the NWA meeting he crashes by pretending to stab him, so he obviously thought that Angel was in mortal danger. In the next scene, he professes his ignorance of all the goings-on. In short, he's in severe denial. This is briefly explored in one of the "Plot Holes" DVD extras. Which is weird, as it would be possible for him to be in the dark (or in denial), and have followed Nicholas only to find him in mortal danger (having heard him on the radio with Skinner). Since the NWA never attacked or so much as suspected Danny in their zeal to get Nicholas, he came to the conclusion that he could pull the ketchup trick and safely get him out of town. Really, the only real plot hole is, how was he planning to explain his missing car? (But then, the NWA is pretty single-minded...) For that matter, the entire local police service is convinced that officers transferred from out of town are paranoid lunatics, seeing every single obvious accident as a potential murder just because somebody died.

Good Cannot Comprehend Evil: Nicholas is pretty good at understanding the motives of most crimes, he can understand regular evil. When confronting the masterminds of the plot he lays out a very rational if amoral plan to enrich themselves with a few targeted murders. What he can't even begin to comprehend is the pettiness that comes from killing dozens if not hundreds of people over the years, including children, just to win a meaningless contest each year. Sgt Angel goes from calm and collected to completely baffled and yelling at them in under a minute.

Chekhov's Skill
 Hot Fuzz / int_acecb17d
comment
Chekhov's Skill: Danny pretends to stab his own eye out with a fork by hiding a packet of ketchup in his hand and stabbing that instead. He later uses the same trick to fake killing Angel. Danny also is shown to have a fantastic memory, which he uses mainly for quoting action movies and remembering every last detail about the locals. After spending some time around Angel, he puts this skill to good use a couple times by quoting Angel verbatim. He also remembers everything that Angel finds in the newspapers after Leslie Tiller's death, whereas Angel himself has to consult his notes. Angel has several of them—many revealed during the opening narration giving his biography: He is shown to be an expert fencer. This comes in handy when Bernard attacks Angel with a saber, with Angel fending him off with his police baton. Angel holds the police record for the 100 yard dash. Comes in handy when Reaper's mother tries to shoot Angel with a shotgun. Angel is able to sprint over and take her out before she finishes reloading. Angel's skill with guns, having served with SO19. Useful when he starts a shootout with the NWA... or a friendly game of carnival air rifle. He displayed aptitudes for urban pacification and riot control during his time at the Police Academy. Which forms the basis of act 3. He took and aced an advanced driving course, and participates in several high-speed pursuits. This culminates in out-driving bad guys when the swan shows up in the middle of the road - subverted though, in that Danny is driving at the time. Strangely, Angel's superb skill with bicycles never comes into play.

Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!
 Hot Fuzz / int_acf33d00

Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: The NWA does this by having killed Popwell, thus opening up the position for Angel to take up. Annette Roper asks Danny, "No luck catching them killers, then?" when he and Angel go to her shop for Cornettos, giving Angel a Eureka Moment that indirectly leads to him uncovering the truth. On top of that, Annette Roper is one of the killers herself. In the climax, the villains may have been able to spin Nick as being a cop that goes on a rampage except for one thing: they all not just return his fire but also instigate some of the confrontations. The rest of the police force isn't stupid enough to ignore that when they try to stop the shootout within the tavern. Nick manages to point out that the whole situation is absurd, and Danny backs him up.

Freudian Excuse Is No Excuse: While most of the culprits of the murders did it for the petty reason of making sure their village wins the 'Village of the Year' award by killing off anyone who might undermine its reputation, the only one who at least has a Freudian Excuse is Frank Butterman. His wife killed herself after Sandford lost the 'Village of the Year' award she worked so hard to win because of travellers setting up. This doesn't justify his actions and his own son actually calls him out on it.

All for Nothing: Irene Butterman's efforts to prepare Sandford for the Village of the Year competition twenty years before was ruined by gypsy travellers moving into Callahan Park, which led Irene to lose her mind and kill herself. Implied to have been the case in the present, too, with the current Village of the Year competition (the final chase-slash-shootout barrels through the streets right in front of the Village of the Year judging team on a quick scene and they blankly stare ahead as a sign wishing the town luck falls in the background). Angel even lampshades it, saying the people who were murdered died for no reason other than utter pettiness.

Coming-of-Age Story: The late bloomer variety for both Nicolas and Danny.

Through Nicolas, Danny learns to be responsible with his police work. While Nicolas learns to minimise the stress of being a police officer that he built up for himself since he was a kid.

Smarter Than You Look: The rest of the police force. While Angel considers them as a Bad Cop/Incompetent Cop posse, in the climax they suit up in riot gear on seeing the townsfolk shooting at Nick and Danny, intending to quell a mutual bloodbath. Nick quickly realizes that they aren't stupid, just brainwashed, and manages to convince them to turn against Butterman on the sound logic that a town can't have this many accidents but little to no murders. Not to mention that the whole townsfolk rising and firing on one cop is very suspicious. They all manage to come up with strategies to take down Skinner and his employees.

It's reconstructed later on when he is the only man who can clean up the town he's reassigned to.

Tom Weaver, the most visible and worried member of the NWA, screaming at Angel that he's a busybody in the post-climax showdown. Weaver's also the one responsible for watching the town's CCTV camera network (i.e. spying on everyone). Joyce calls Angel a fascist while she fires her BFG at him. She's part of a conspiracy that rules Sandford through false information and heavy-handed violence. Murdering troublemakers is justified for the greater good but killing a swan is a line the NWA won't cross.note It is illegal to kill swans in the UK

And again at the end of the movie to indicate that Angel has lightened up considerably, he responds to have a waste basket thrown at his head with, "You cheeky fucker!" Right before the (seemingly) deadly guest.

Thematic Series: It's the second movie in Edgar Wright's thematic trilogy (alternately called "the Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy" and "the Three Colours Cornetto trilogy"), of which Shaun of the Dead is the first and The World's End is the third. The movies have no characters or plot points in common, but they're each extremely gory black comedies that affectionately parody popular action movie genres and feature Simon Pegg and Nick Frost playing a pair of Vitriolic Best Buds who can't live without each other. And ice cream.

Improbable Aiming Skills
 Hot Fuzz / int_bcd27e37
comment
Improbable Aiming Skills: Played straight and subverted, as Angel is remarkably good at shooting to disable. The best example would be shooting the strings of a flowerpot above a woman's head with a rifle from several yards away, which neatly severs the chain without damaging the pot or the beam they're hanging on. Subverted when he goes diving through the air, Guns Akimbo, in classic Woo style, and hits bugger-all... which is exactly what happens when you try that in real life. Most of the other coppers don't hit a thing with the shotguns from the evidence room. One can only assume they were loaded with rock salt so as not to accidentally kill anyone. Also notable when Nicholas hurls a spray paint can at a fleeing suspect in a large arc; he gets a direct hit and knocks the guy out cold.

Implied to have been the case in the present, too, with the current Village of the Year competition (the final chase-slash-shootout barrels through the streets right in front of the Village of the Year judging team on a quick scene and they blankly stare ahead as a sign wishing the town luck falls in the background). Angel even lampshades it, saying the people who were murdered died for no reason other than utter pettiness.

Irony
 Hot Fuzz / int_c335b9ec

Irony: When Skinner attacks Angel in the model village, he slips on a model Somerfield van (the store he runs) and his chin is impaled on the model church roof. He was presumably the one who dropped a piece of the real church roof on Tim Messenger's head. Also, three of the killers, who passed off the murders as accidents, end up becoming victims of actual accidents. See Laser-Guided Karma. Nick Angel, whose characterization (and not least his name) is steeped in Christian symbolism, identifies as agnostic. In an early script, he was Buddhist, hence the "Fuck off, Grasshopper!" line.

Felony Misdemeanor: Everyone murdered in Sandford suffered an "accident" for petty reasons like being a bad actor, having an awful laugh, lots of typos in the newspaper, or having an ugly house. And let's not get started on the underage drinkers, that shoplifter, those crusty jugglers, the weapons-owning farmer, and THE LIVING STATUE. A woman is murdered for trying to move; the NWA didn't want her sharing her gardening talents with another community. It turns out she was NWA also, but still. Then there are the Traveling Irish. The NWA even kill the travellers' dogs for pooping in the streets. Brutal. Crossed with Values Dissonance. The pub owners allowed teens to drink alcohol despite clearly being underage, note It was so they wouldn't get in trouble with the law outside, ironically. but Weaver and the rest of the NWA are very concerned with minor or even nonexistant offenses, like loiterers, typos, and the extremely irritating living statue! Although Fridge Logic does kick in when you consider how they killed the kids anyway after Nicholas arrests them.

Offscreen Teleportation: The black cloaked figure pulls this twice on Angel when fleeing from him after murdering Leslie Tiller, as in the blink of an eye, the figure is suddenly quite a distance ahead of him twice, first when they emerge into the open, and then after the figure makes it through a fence. Subverted, however, when it's later revealed there were multiple cloaked figures in the sequence, at the same time as Angel discovers the killers at the castle.

Shout-Out
 Hot Fuzz / int_c75df49a
comment
Shout-Out: To Shaun of the Dead's fence jumping scene: This time the protagonist successfully jumps over the picket fences. The Deuteragonist...not so much. Also to Shaun of the Dead: Blink and you'll miss it; there's a Shaun of the Dead DVD in the basket where Danny throws the Supercop DVD. And again, when Angel's stabbed by Danny—he's got red on him! Skinner mentions that "Greg over there was an extra in Straw Dogs," and Angel drops a beartrap on someone's head as in that same movie. Throughout the film, Inspector Frank Butterman tells stories to Sergeant Angel about a predecessor, Sergeant Popwell, who had had a breakdown and was killed prior to the events of the film. The name "Popwell" is a reference to Albert Popwell, an actor who had different roles in four films of the Dirty Harry franchise, most famously as the robber at the receiving end of the "Do I feel lucky?" speech. Popwell also had a role in a 1972 American movie simply called Fuzz, a police procedural action comedy with the same tagline/Catchphrase as this film ("Here come the Fuzz.") that involved the investigation of a murder-extortion racket. Of course there are several to Point Break (1991) and Bad Boys II. The fact that Blower specifically refers to their Romeo and Juliet production as 'William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet" shows they're actually adapting the Baz Luhrmann movie, and indeed, the two leads are wearing the exact same clothes of the party scene, and the closing deaths are followed by a Dance Party Ending featuring a song from that movie, "Lovefool". The giant arsenal of weapons is found at Ellroy Farms.

comment
Nick is the Logical Latecomer who notices a series of strange events in the town, which he considers possible murders, for this reason. He notes that people in a horrific car crash don't have only their bodies intact after losing their heads, and the car shows little damage. With the second "accident," Nick points out that the man in question was too drunk to start a fire, given he needed two people to help him home and was tucked into bed. And with Tim Messenger, statues don't just fall randomly from the sky as they're about to talk about an important story with a bobby. Conversely, the police officers dismiss him because they've seen such accidents all their lives and Nick is known for being extremely paranoid. In fact, the Andys have a Wait, What? reaction when Nick points out in the climax that there's a large number of accidents in this town and not many homicides and note it is very strange.

In a conversation Nicholas has with Danny about how "something is always going on," he points out three people that he thinks could be suspicious. One is the shoplifter who will be busted a couple scenes later, and the other two turn out to be part of the town's conspiracy; in addition, Nicholas points out that Mr. Treacher could be hiding something under his large, fairly unnecessary coat. A big gun, specifically.

Loads and Loads of Characters: Though the story generally sticks to the main characters, it is worth note that there are 24 conspirators in Sandford's cult. Only two of them die. Mrs. Tiller is killed by her fellow members when she decides to move and Weaver is killed by the sea mine. There are around 50 characters that have speaking lines. Then there's the swan a.k.a. "Sandford's most wanted..." Parodied in one of the trailers, where the characters all get captions with their actors' names. As do the effects, the guns, the locations...

Hypocrite: The NWA kills people for even the slightest offence, yet they're fine with one of their own (Michael) being a result of incest, if what Danny says is true. The bartender and wife are member of the NWA yet they served alcohol to the teenagers that later were killed because of drinking before the legal age limit, meaning the two broke the law as much as them.

When Angel calls them out on this, one of the Andys tells them that "not everyone's a murdering psychopath, and it's high time [he and Danny] realize that". Danny then decides to go home himself, causing an already-frustrated Angel to give him a "The Reason You Suck" Speech. Danny responds with a small one of his own, shouting at Angel, "You don't know how to switch off!", before running off, leaving Angel on his own.

Hollywood Atheist: Averted with protagonist Nicholas Angel, who says he's open to religion, though not entirely convinced in a brief conversation with the town vicar (leading the vicar to label him agnostic instead), and is the most morally upright person shown, to the point of following every rule to the letter.

Red Herring
 Hot Fuzz / int_dbca2c99
comment
Red Herring: Simon Skinner, the Smug Snake manager of the local supermarket, is clearly being set up to be either the villain, or a red herring with the actual villain being one of the eccentric village types the protagonist encounters. Angel even constructs a plausible motive involving adultery, greed, envy, and a land deal threatening his business. It turns out that all the eccentric locals, including Skinner, are involved, but are doing these killings for incredibly petty reasons that in some way threaten the village's image. Every one of Angel's impressive skills mentioned during the prologue are used at some point during the film. Except cycling. There is one character named James Reaper. Given the fact that the villain dresses up as The Grim Reaper, the audience might assume that he's the real killer. He's not the killer, but as a member of the NWA, he is one of the killers...

Reasonable Authority Figure: Nick himself is this. When he stops Martin Blower from speeding, all he does is write down what Martin is saying in a notebook and letting him off with a warning. Much later, when the local journalist wants to talk to him, he goes at their appointed meeting time and finds his death rather suspicious. Inspector Butterman seems more inclined to believe Angel and act on his advice, in contrast to the other officers who all express everything from quiet loathing to outright mockery of Angel. Subverted, when it's revealed that Butterman is really the Big Bad. The rest of the police as of the last act as they are quick to believe Angel and Danny about the conspiracy and then assist them. Even they can't ignore that the townsfolk drew the first shots on Angel.

Decon-Recon Switch: For cop movies. The first half shows off just how bland a hero cop would be, how disliked by his peers he is for his heroic actions, how much Angel actually hates violence, the amount of paperwork one has to fill out, and how actual cop work mostly consists of busting small town troublemakers like underage drinkers and shoplifters. The second half gives us massive explosions, Guns Akimbo, firefights, car chases, police cars, and every trapping every police movie has ever had.

And of course, Danny, being the Deuteragonist, has this in spades. He's at first shown to be mostly inept (Even possibly by the Sandford Police's standards), being a Manchild obsessed with action movies with a hero worship of Nicholas despite a seeming inability to keep his mind on the job. But even before the third act he saves Nicholas' life, shows he's indeed been paying attention to all Nicholas was teaching him and spends the rest of the movie showing his mettle.

Animal Motifs: Subtle, Nicholas is associated with swans. Nicolas stays at The Swan Hotel and one of his missions involves capturing a swan. Symbolism-wise, a pair of swans are known to be partners for life and the relationship between Nicholas and Danny are on par with a married couple, with their actors comparing it to a gay relationship. It can also be compared to the ugly duckling, a story about an outcast that grows to be a beautiful swan, like how Danny and Nicholas mature into authority figures. Danny learns to step out of his dad's shadow and be his own person, while Nicholas learns to switch off and relax with others.

The director's commentary says that Nick was deliberately aiming for non-lethal shots. That being said, there's no such thing as a safe place to shoot. Also note that the majority of the time Angel achieves a non-lethal shot by shooting objects near the target, rather than directly shooting the target's body.

When Nicholas tells the Sergeant he'd like to speak to the Inspector, the Sergeant assures him "You can speak to the inspector but I promise you he will tell you exactly the same thing as I have". Cut to the Inspector saying "Hello Nicholas. How's the hand?" Let's just say Danny was being completely honest about using his notebook. He uses it for flipbook animations. Reverend Shooter's lines of "Someone's in for a surprise at 3:00, ladies and gentlemen" at the village fete. It foreshadows the death of Tim Messenger. When Danny asks Angel about why the use of traffic collision instead of accident while they are cordoning off the site of the Blower car crash, Angel (who just had a conversation with an incredibly suspicious Skinner) ominously says:

Dumbass Has a Point: While the audience knows for a fact that sinister doings are behind the various deaths in Sandford early on, in defence of the Sandford Police's apparent incompetence they are very cleverly arranged to look like accidents (initially, at least). Martin Blower was clearly established as a reckless driver, thus making his and Eve Draper's death-by-crash not entirely unlikely, George Merchant certainly wouldn't be the first drunk to forget to turn the gas off with unfortunate consequences, and Tim Messenger was killed by a chunk of masonry from an old church at a fundraiser specifically to raise funds to repair it. Then Leslie Tiller gets a pair of shears rammed into her throat in front of Angel...

Glad I Thought of It: A Running Gag is Angel giving a set of complicated directions, then Fisher nodding and saying "what he said." this gets an Ironic Echo in the climax, when Fisher's the one to come up with a plan and Angel reinforces it with that same line.

Shoo the Dog
 Hot Fuzz / int_f50b1e05
comment
Shoo the Dog: Danny fakes Nick's death and drives him out of town on the pretense of dumping the body. He bluntly tells Nick that he has to get back to London where it's safe, while in denial that his father is a murderer. Nick almost does it... until seeing a display of Danny's favorite movies makes him realize he has to go back.

No Sense of Humor: Nick's complete and utter devotion to his job has made him a first-class police officer, but it's also rendered him completely humourless, pedantic, and uptight. Indeed, it's not until 45 minutes in that he laughs for the first time.

Running Gag
 Hot Fuzz / int_f9f2c33
comment
Running Gag: The swan. Dr. Hatcher getting shot in the leg. "Morning, Sergeant!" The hostage situations. A man urinating in inappropriate places, who, when called out, turns and asks "what?", turning the stream on Nick and Danny. During the garden shop lady's monologue, which provides a possible explanation for all the murders, every time she mentions (God rest her) the name (God rest him) or names (God rest them) of the dead, she says "God rest him/her/them". Repeat of the phrase, "The greater good." Whenever the phrase is mentioned, it is immediately repeated by someone in the vicinity, or by multiple people.

Comically Missing the Point: One of the Turners sees Angel leave the station after his supposed death, riding a horse and packing a metric shit-ton of heat, and muses that no one told him that Sandford had a mounted division. In the scene with the underage drinkers at the pub: Roughly 50% of Danny Butterman's lines. When introducing PC Thatcher: When Nick discusses his childhood:

 Hot Fuzz / int_fd4f8299
comment
Well-Intentioned Extremist: Zigzagged with Inspector Butterman and the NWA. On one hand, they insist that their killings are for the greater good of Sanford, on the other hand, they show signs of being Not So Well Intentioned Extremists because a lot of their killings are done for incredibly petty reasons (having an annoying laugh, having an "awful" house, making typos) and it's implied that some of the members actually get sadistic pleasure from killing people (especially Simon Skinner).

Theme Naming
 Hot Fuzz / int_fd94c4ac
comment
Theme Naming: Most of the townspeople have names that derive from traditional rural, working-class occupations and activities, such as Cartwright and Wainwright. Most of them (and a couple besides that don't fit that pattern) end in "-er," including Cooper, Porter, Turner, Skinner, Draper, Shooter, Prosser, Hatcher, Paver, Brother, Fisher, Walker, Thatcher, Weaver, Roper, Reaper, Staker, Messenger, Treacher, Cocker, Blower... Some of them are an 'old-world' echo of the modern professions these characters follow, e.g. Tim Messenger the journalist, Dr Hatcher who "brought Danny into this world." The notable exception is "Butterman": Nick Frost agreed to do the film on the proviso that he be allowed to name his character.

Evil Is Hammy
 Hot Fuzz / int_fdf22cfd
comment
Evil Is Hammy: Skinner is played with so much gusto the viewer practically expects him to start twirling his moustache and tying women to railway tracks. This is subverted when it's revealed he didn't have anything to do with the murders and then Double Subverted when it's finally revealed that both he and half of the village were in on them. He may not have been the one who actually did all of the killings, but may have assisted in a couple of them.

The Andies joke that if they need to interview a victim's clients, they may as well talk to everyone in the village, since he did business with everyone. They suggest opening up the phonebook and starting with Aaron A. Aaronson. At the end of the movie, Angel saves a boy who introduces himself as Aaron A. Aaronson; Angel does a Double Take.

Evil Is Petty

comment
Evil Is Petty: The true reasons behind all the murders are generally both silly and, above all else, extremely banal, though the murderers consider them to be Serious Business. Martin Blower was killed for being a bad actor, Eve Draper was killed for having an affair with Blower and an Annoying Laugh, George Merchant was killed for having a modern-style home that clashes with the local rustic aesthetic, Tim Messenger was killed because of his awful spelling and for running tabloid-esque tripe in the local newspaper.

Shown Their Work
 Hot Fuzz / int_ffad4e9f
comment
Shown Their Work: A lot of police officers were consulted in the making of this film. They liked the paperwork scenes. If you have the DVD, you'll find out a lot more of what Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright found out on the "Fuzz Facts" trivia track. For example, Sandford is the name of the fictional town traditionally used in UK police training exercises. And the official vocabulary guidelines really do require officers to say "police service." They also sat through dozens upon hundreds of cop movies and assorted subgenres, making sure they got all the cliches just right. To a lesser extent, swans are not sweet birds. They can injure a person if given a chance. Butterman finds this out the hard way in the climax.
