directed by Matthew Vaughn (2014)
I’m not sure Kingsman will survive Time, but if you’re looking for good and light entertainment, this is it, as far I’m concerned.
Playing with the action and spy movie codes, the film is pretty much a British Wanted, understand with Victorian wit and a subtler ‘my father died and I’m a genius orphan!!!‘ storyline.
I personally had a great time. The film was recommended to me by several people on this list, and I thank you for that!
But I also had a long talk with an editor/colleague who swears by Arnaud Desplechin and Woody Allen and who thought it was of poor taste and a huge faux-pas.
Conclusion: know your taste and adjust your expectations.
