Short review: My, I’m surprised that Hollywood let this one get greenlit.
Slightly longer review: Fun, pretty well-made. Doesn’t take itself too seriously, doesn’t take our self-appointed ‘elites’ seriously at all. Definitely a movie based on a comic book, as will become obvious very quickly. Mark Millar and/or Matthew Vaughn pretty obviously love Bond flicks, and it shows. Also: while hating this movie doesn’t mean that you’re somebody I dislike, I’m pretty sure that most of the people whom I dislike professionally also hate this movie*.
So, feel free to watch it. As for the comic… well, I went and got The Secret Service: Kingsman. So there’s that.
*Sonny Bunch called it ‘conservative in a “Washington Free Beacon Trolling” sort of way.’ And, in case you don’t know: what the Washington Free Beacon doesn’t know about trolling its ideological opponents isn’t worth knowing. Which is to say: Sonny means it as a compliment, and I do too.
