      Thank you! You definitely should, the only thing that’ll stop this from being a hit is the box office – so make sure to go watch it! :)

    I’m definitely interested. Seems like a cult classic in the making.

      I’m glad, the film will be a giant hit if its recognized. :)

    Saw it yesterday, and I have some thoughts.

    First off, the fight scene in the church was absolutely worth the price of admission alone – it was insane, brutal, frenetic and had me watching wide-eyed. As a frequent cinema-goer and longtime discerning fan of great action sequences, that doesn’t happen very often. It also made me see Colin Firth in a completely new light, and it’ll be interesting to see whether this marks the beginning of a new direction for his career.

    The way the climactic action sequence was shot was similarly stunning, and in fact, I might go so far as to say that Matthew Vaughn is one of the best action directors working today. His work in this film should cement that position, one that was already very strong after Kick-Ass.

    Also, the soundtrack was awesome – from that epic Free Bird solo during the church sequence to Give It Up playing at the climax, and the original score was really well put together as well. It’s not really surprising considering Matthew Vaughn’s musical background and his track record in this area.

    Overall the film is an exercise in total and complete excess, which is going to put a lot of people off, but I absolutely loved it.

      I completely agree with everything you said. The only problem will be that certain audiences won’t enjoy due to the excess amount of action and gore. But personally, it’s refreshing to see this kind of film return to cinema, Bond lost its Kingsman style and has gone more formal, not bad, necessarily, but less ‘fun’. Kingsman really put that spark back in.

      Glad you enjoyed – make sure to get everyone else to watch! (BOX Office needs to be good!)

  • Great review! I had a few problems with it (could have done with a little bit more background on Valentine) but overall it was an extremely fun couple of hours with some nicely over the top action. The church scene… my mind is still recovering, I think

    I liked it, deliriously entertaining with great acting and gags (and the Church scene-OMG),but my main problem was that the swearing got pretty boring pretty quickly. Apart from that though-brilliant!

      The Church scene was tedious for me. I don’t see what was so great about it

    8.5/10
    It was quite good, but not full marks
