Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015)

Recommended Posts

This is one of those movies that I finally watched because my kids kept saying how splendid it was; wow, what an awful movie.  This might be 2015's Lucy for me.

Lucy is actually a very good point of comparison, in that both films have some visual flair, but the storylines are so mind-numbingly stupid it's nearly impossible to enjoy anything the film has to offer.

Kingsman is essentially a comedy, so I don't dislike it because of its nonsensical absurdity. Its goofiness is a feature, not a bug.

But the film lacks wit. Its attempts at satire are both nasty and hopelessly confused.

I wasn't complaining about the goofiness per se, but the way it takes nasty situations and tries to portray them as goofy (e.g. the church shootout).
