Kingsmen - The Secret Service
Anyone who even knows me only a little would tell you that this film was going to be a winner for me from the get-go. British, Secret Service, Comic-Book heroes, Colin Firth and Mark Strong?! You'd have to be CRAZY not to love this.
And of course I totally did. It was good fun. Samuel L. Jackson was weird with an affected lisp that he did so perfectly I had to give the guy props. His whole demeanor was awkward and I think that was entirely the point. I really was charmed by the young actor (Taron Egerton) who played the Chav who got recruited. Who doesn't love an underdog? But he actually could carry the film - for someone I'd never seen before that was impressive. He had charisma that filled the screen - he's one to watch, for sure.
