Movie Review: Kingsman: The Secret Service Brings The Fun back to Spy Flicks!

When a movie starts with an opening shot of a Helicopter battle with Dire Straight’s “Money of Nothing” playing over the opening credits, you know you are in for something a little different. One of my favorite Directors, Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass, Stardust) brings his unique sensibilities and a breath of fresh air to the stagnate Spy Genre, a genre that has been overly serious lately and in need of a kick-start. Yes, I hate the Daniel Craig Bond films. Kingsman: The Secret Service brought the fun and puns back, mixed with Vaughn’s trademarked over the top violence.

Looking Out Over Tomorrowland

Call it a hunch, but I suspect that as many people watch the Super Bowl for the ads and movie trailers as watch for the actual football game.

As usual, studios spent a few bucks on placing their latest TV spots during (or directly before) the Big Game. Just in case you missed one or two, a collection of Super Bowl movie spots – from Fifty Shades of Gray to Tomorrowland – follows the jump. Enjoy.

Spectacularly Fun Trailer: Kingsmen: The Secret Service

Badass Colin Firth

The month of February has gotten a bad rap. For almost forever, it has been the month where studios sent the movies they’d lost faith in to die. But a curious thing began to happen back when Daredevil was released in February – it became a modest hit.

So studios began treating February with a little respect and now, you get The LEGO Movie being a huge hit from a February release – and 50 Shades of Grey getting a Valentine’s release.

So, why not a all-out spy thriller? Like, say, Matthew Vaughn’s (X-Men First Class, Kick-Ass) epic looking Kingsmen: The Secret Service – starring Colin Firth, Michael Caine and Samuel L. Jackson? The new trailer certainly looks entertaining. Check it out after the jump. Kingsmen: The Secret Service opens on February 13, 2015. Enjoy!
