Let’s start with the movie poster…
…which I found more interesting than its movie trailer;
I don’t want to underestimate Englishman and Oscar-winner Colin Firth (“The King’s Speech), but James Bond-esque spy thrillers require a certain, mysterious and strong look. Like Cruise in his “Mission Impossible” run. Spies and BAMF’s today must be able to assassinate like Bourne. I feel like Colin Firth’s casting misses a certain set of skills. Skills that can bring a nightmare to others. A voice that communicates threats and which can quickly escalate into promises kept. Like this guy:
Maybe I’ll be surprised by “Kingsman: The Secret Service” and Firth’s spy prowess. Time will tell. The movie opens on February 13, 2015 and will probably get squashed by this film at the box office the next day.
