Kingsman: The Secret Service

Episode 16: Kingsman: The Secret Service

In this episode we review Kingsman: The Secret Service directed by Matthew Vaughn who is best known as the director of X-Men: First Class (2011) but Alan and I prefer Kick-Ass (2010). Also, I trick Alan into admitting that I’m his best friend.

    I think the poster may be an homage to James Bond and the “For Your Eyes Only” poster:

    Although I’m not sure why she isn’t holding a martini, shaken, not stirred.
