Paul Review

Superb. But if you are looking for another Hot Fuzz or Shaun of the Dead, you will be disappointed. This is a different movie made by different people. It is very funny and extremely witty. You can really see Frost's and Pegg's nerd backgrounds flourish in the writing. There are a lot of sci-fi references but they are never cheesy and are justified in a decent and creative manner. The best performances, oddly enough, come from supporting roles. Hader steals every scene he is in. It wasn't quite what I expected. I thought Pegg and Frost would be more of the lead. But the way it was done was better. It is a story about Paul's journey after all. Finally, this movie is written well and never tries to be anything more than what it is: an entertaining comedy. Ant it does that very well.
Definitely see. And don't wait. It is worth full price and is a great night out.
