Spoiler Alert Saturday :: my thoughts on Kingsman: The Secret Service

28 Feb
  • Gazelle (Sofia Boutella) and Roxy (Sophie Cookson) were kickass, so that was fun.  The former’s springy knives for feet made for some fascinating violence and her vaguely evil expressions were lovely.  The latter hails from my pet region (she’s of Sussex, specifically) in England so she was great to listen to and I appreciated the range of expression she was allowed to show in the script (tough, friendly, unapologetic, nervous, excited, etcetera – all those emotions like a real person!) so, yeah.
  • Look at this movie consistently fridging middle-aged white guys.
  • Harry’s (Colin Firth) comeback to the lady in the conservative hate group church made me want to applaud, honestly.
  • Also, I had people legitimately betting that Merlin (Mark Strong) was going to be a bad guy, because, well, that’s what Mark Strong generally does.  I imagine it was something of a relief for him to get to not be that.
  • It wasn’t a perfect film, but it was fun, generally, and I think that the fact that it was so very British really went a long way for me personally.
