It isn’t often that a movie exceeds my expectations, but this one sure did. I was hoping for something good; I got something great.
There are no holes in this movie. The acting is better than good, there isn’t anything groundbreaking with the action, but I think they did an excellent job. Especially with the length of the fight scenes. They gave us enough to enjoy without dragging it out for too long.
The *evil plot* was one of the best in any spy movie ever. It was easy to understand and oddly compelling. I must admit I’ve had the same thoughts myself from time to time after watching cable news. 🙂
If there was one thing I would criticize it would be the humor. There were lots of amusing scenes, but only a few downright LOL moments. But, on the other hand they didn’t try to create any LOL moments that missed.
Matthew Vaughn, the writer/director, deserves huge kudos for bringing the fun back to spy movies. I just want to know when the sequel is due.
