I will watch this over and over again, happily. Its incredible too see Colin Firth, the stereotypical charm exuding, bumbling brit turned into a bad ass bitch. I barely have the words to explain how I feel about it. If you take yourself incredibly seriously then I wouldn't bother with this film because its simply too amazingly ridiculous for you, and that, i'm afraid, is your loss.
Yes, yes, it's all very post-modern and self-consciously politically incorrect blah blah blah and I'm fine with that if the film shows a modicum of intelligence. But this really did come across to me as an unpleasantly reactionary piece of work, some nice design and action pieces notwithstanding.
Completely underwhelming. Also kinda racist? Why were the bad guys the only people of colour in the whole damn film? Taron Egerton is extremely awkward and I can't imagine him to be star material. The rest of the cast has their talents wasted. All of the action scenes are heavily stylised but were just failed attempts at something Tarantino or Wright-esque. The ending is so ridiculous I can't believe it was written.
(Vu qekpart sur le web) L'ambition du film? Du fun pour le fun et le contrat est bien rempli. Le tout est très bien rythmé. Film d'espionnage quasi-parodique, poussant jusqu'à l'absurde les codes des James Bond (héros insensibles aux balles; plus fluides à la baston que tous les héros de la Shaw Brothers réunis!), l'ensemble en devient un peu trop lisse...Le réal aime-t-il vraiment ses perso? Son film? Pas si sûr...
Oops. My bad. Here I am again, having watched a movie intended to accompany boys through puberty. Why the conspicuous paucity of arterial spray? I will concede that, as myself a heterosexual man of some not insubstantial glandular fortitude, I do have a serious yearning for this chippie w/ the weaponized legs. Growl. But seriously: what's w/ all the sound and fury? Planet's gonna cull us just fine on 'er own.
