The film that Hot Fuzz reminded me of most was The Boys In Blue, in which Cannon and Ball played rural bobbies suddenly confronted with a real crime to solve. As you can probably guess, it wasn't much cop. And neither is this.
The sensibility is Jerry Bruckheimer at Ealing Studios, and it doesn't work; the British whimsy and deadpan observational humor is overwhelmed by the tiresome bloat, blood and noise lifted from the spoofed source material.
