The World's End ★★½

A great premise with a loose, lazy story that I found quite boring in parts. There wasn't much differentiation between the characters outside of Gary and too many plot points that defied belief. (Like why do they continue on the pub crawl when it's obvious the robots are onto them? Why does Andy not just let Gary drink his last pint so they can get out of there?) It's not that working out these story problems would have been impossible -- it just feels like everyone was so enamored with the idea, they didn't think they had to.

Of the Apocalyptic Comedies of Summer 2013, This Is the End is far and away the better choice.
