  • Kingsman: The Secret Service 2015

    ★★★½ Watched 31 Jan, 2015

    Daniel Craig's era of James Bond has ushered a more serious, gritty version of the British spy. Brutal, efficient and not a trace of campiness in sight. However for those of you who yearn for a return to the witty one-liners, crazy gadgets and over-the-top villains, topped with a Martini shaken not stirred, then Kingsman might just be your cup of tea.

    There is a more focus on the apes this time around, and the perfect marriage of technical wizardry coupled with nuanced motion performance allows the film-maker to create scenes that…
