Awesome / Hot Fuzz

  • Hot Fuzz, unfortunately, lacks a defining Crowning Moment Of Awesome. This is primarily because it has a something that can qualify as a Crowning Moment Of Awesome every thirty seconds - though the thirty minutes involving Angel's return to town and kicking the collected asses of everyone can potentially count.
  • Arguably, the best of these comes during the final standoff between Angel and Timothy Dalton, as the Dalton-ator beats Angel to the ground with a series of sledgehammer like punches, and just as he swings the finisher "GET. OUT. OF MY. VILLAGE!", Angel catches it, stands up, crushing the hand and retorts "It's not your village anymore!" before punching Dalton's lights out, sending him crashing down into the miniature replica of his OWN SHOP.
    • Even better because that entire scene is like watching a Godzilla movie.
      • This moment was mentioned specifically by Simon Pegg in interviews as the moment he realised 'I was fighting James Bond, and I was winning!'
  • The gunfight is followed by a lot of paperwork, something real coppers appreciated. However, it's shot in the same way as the action: Whip pans! Crash zooms! Dual Wielding pens! Awesome Paperwork!
  • There is a Crowning Moment of Awesome that makes all the others possible: Danny Butterman and a sachet of ketchup. "Ta-da!"
  • Angel, dropkicking an old lady in the face.
  • Angel riding the white horse into the middle of town while NWA gapes in surprise and amazement.
  • One word: "Morning."
  • "You're a doctor. Deal with it." "Yeah, motherfucker."
  • "Fascist!" * blam* "Hag."
  • The reprise of the swan.
  • Angel strapping every gun in the evidence locker on. And his Improbable Aiming Skills.
  • The officers shaping up for the final fight. The "incompetent" Sergeant Tony Fisher suddenly comes up with a comprehensive and decent plan very quickly. And even though the Andys' and Doris don't do any substantial detective work, they do end up kicking some substantial ass.
  • The sight of the old schoolteacher dual wielding pistols at Angel. While on a bicycle.
  • Nick refusing to come back to London when the Jerk Ass inspectors from the Met come to Sandford to ask him to come back, as crime has grown tenfold ever since he was Kicked Upstairs. While you know it was mostly because Nick had grown to like Sandford and his new friends, you can tell it's also him getting a little payback.
  • "Oh fuck off, grasshopper!"
