Here's what the critics are saying:

The movie goes from a character study to something that is quite nutty, and yet it loses nothing in the transition. . . . The result is an original picture, not entirely successful, but successful enough, and delightful in its ability to surprise viewers, and juggle tones and keep every ball in the air.  — Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle

Some inner logic may not hold up under the sober light of day, but this unusual action-comedy has the loosey-goosey feel of something that can’t miss, like a soused round of bar pool. — Jordan Hoffman, New York Daily News

As co-written by Pegg and [Edgar] Wright, "World's End" offers some comic insight into the pitfalls of arrested development and the perils of living in the past. — Claudia Puig, USA Today

At once a "Big Chill"-style old-pal reunion story and an "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" homage doused in beer and bad-boy humor, this third collaboration (after "Shaun of the Dead" and "Hot Fuzz") between [Simon Pegg, Edgar Wright] and co-star Nick Frost is a fast and funny action-comedy undercut by moments of midlife nostalgia. — Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter
