Giving cinematic praise where it's due. Raining down hellfire where it's not.

Kingsman: The Secret Service (2014)
Perhaps a glimpse of what the James Bond franchise could be with some new blood behind the camera? This is a sneaky film. It presents itself as an old codger spy throwback, but in reality it’s a balls out, over-the-top, head popping splatterfest. Which is to say, I enjoyed it. Belief has to be suspended, as the plot it borderline Austin Powers crazy, but it’s a fun crazy, with Samuel J going for broke.
