Hot Fuzz, A Haiku Movie Review
By Jeff Stern
Friday, June 1st, 2007

Ironic homage
to buddy action thrillers:
British meta-cops.

A tough London cop.
A towne with a dark secret.
Somethin’s gotta give.

A village shootout:
bullet-shattered plant pot shards
float in a beer pool.

Miniature towne:
a former James Bond impaled
by a church steeple.

Aware of itself.
A movie about movies.
A film about films.
