G Doyle’s review published on Letterboxd:
Kingsman does what Austin Powers did in the 90s. All out attack on a spy franchise just when it starts getting too smug with itself. It can take the rules and break them. I have theory it damaged Spectre’s power just by being more vital and fun.
If you want to subvert Bond Movies. Might be good idea not to fill it with shitty SPECIAL SAUCE™ product placement. Even modern Bond Movies don’t go there anymore. It’s one of those 20th Fox films when the SKY news report roll in and the SUN newspapers catch your eye. You know Rupert Murdoch been rubbing his bollocks on it.
Then I start thinking too much about this might be a subtext of working class seduction by the Tory party... Too much thinking.
