LEGEND (2015): Thank You, Super Trailer Maker!

Tom Hardy’s Legend has a great new trailer.

This third version is so well put together that you’re not going to be happy when it’s over. Sounds like an odd thing to say… until you realise that it’s only July and the release date is in two to three months time.

Impatiently goes the wait to witness the extraordinary transformation of Mr Hardy, great British humour and that good, good music.

Happy Legend 🙂

KINGSMAN – THE SECRET SERVICE (2014): Everything I Wanted To See

What a very pleasant surprise!’

The above is my thoughts and feelings during and after watching action / adventure / comedy Kingsman – The secret Service.

Of course I should have had way more faith – if only because the film is directed by Matthew Vaughn, part of the great team that brought us Snatch (2000) and Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels (1998).

Starring Colin Firth, Sofia Boutella, Samuel L Jackson, Mark Strong, Michael Caine and Taron Egerton, Kingsman – The Secret Service or Kingsman for short is a great movie.

A story of adventure, fun characters, action, well choreographed fight sequences and some good old British gentlemanly charm. Kingsman is very stylish and I definitely don’t just mean the suits. There are one or two things that you’ll see coming, story-wise but even more so, the spectacle will surprise you and exceed your expectations.

All that remains is patiently waiting for the next instalment.

Happy Kingsman, The Secret Service 🙂

For all serious Tom Hardy fans, a promising cinematic feast is coming.

Legend, the Brian Helgeland directed film has Hardy playing two characters. Namely Ronald and Reginald Kray, a.k.a.The Kray Twins – identical twin gangsters known for terrorising London in the 1950s and 1960s.

In a few months the feast is coming. But first, an appetiser…

Teaser Trailer…

KINGSMAN – THE SECRET SERVICE (2014): Now I’ll Definitely See It

The great new Super Bowl trailer for Director Matthew Vaughn’s Kingman The Secret Service has convinced me to watch the film. I was only mildly intrigued before.

I does help that Kingsman is written by Jane Goldman – whose other writing credits include Kick-Ass (2010) and X-Men First Class (2011).

There is one thing that doesn’t sit quite so easily with me about this trailer – and that would be the claim by Alex Zane of the UK’s Sun newspaper, that Kingman – The Secret Service  is ‘More Badass Than Bond.’ Please! PLEASE, I say! It’s incredibly hard to believe that there’s any other British spy movie more badass than Daniel Craig’s Bond. Incredibly hard to believe!

But we’ll see…

Happy Kingsman, The Secret Service 🙂
