Imagine for a second working at Life magazine, where the greatest events in history are recorded in the most vivid detail, and you are the guy that meticulously handles every image as they come in from the field. When Walter can’t find film negative 25 from Sean O’Connell, the one that is to be the quintessence of all his photos and the final one for Life Magazine, he is encouraged to go on an adventure and find it by his love interest, Cheryl Melhoff (Kristen Wiig). Walter and Sean O’Connell have never met in person, yet they share a close friendship, working together for 16 years. On a side note, the scene with Walter in Greenland and the drunk helicopter pilot is so good!
Probably one of the most memorable scenes in the movie is when Walter finally catches up with Sean O’Connell. When Walter asks O’Connell about negative 25 and finds out he had it but may have accidentally thrown it away, O’Connell doesn’t blow up at him like you would expect. I know some of the great quotes in the movie come directly from James Thurber’s original short story. Comic book adaptations are becoming a dime a dozen rapidly with the varying success from companies like Marvel and DC, but not all source material requires superheroes. Kingsman agents are part of Britain’s super-secret spy organization tasked with protecting the freedoms of the world.
The story greatly has been changed from the original comic, but it pays it beautiful tributes to those few who have read the six issue series — fans will find jokes and easter eggs planted throughout the film.
The soundtrack and music editing I only really noticed and truly fell in love with on the second time and moving forward. This is the perfect film for Valentine’s Day weekend, but let me warn this is a very hard R. He works in the basement of Life Magazine’s corporate office, processing film negatives in what appears to be a massive, windowless, and well-organized darkroom. Like many men, he seems to be struggling with the inner desire to be something or do something significant with his life and fantasizes about himself as a hero or lover.


When he comes back to the office he sees Sean’s picture and imagines Sean slowly summoning him to come into the adventurous world. I like to think that to Walter, O’Connell is something of a father figure rather than just a legend of a man living the life that Walter wished he lived. Olafur Darri Olafsson (yeah I don’t know how to pronounce his name either) plays the pilot and does such an excellent job.
He’s parked out on a ridge in the Himalayas waiting for the sight of the elusive snow leopard, known locally as the “Ghost Cat”. When Walter asks what it was I think O’Connell has already decided to keep it as one of those “in the moment” pictures. When a mission goes sour and an agent is killed, a new position opens up and the selection process begins.
In fact, I have now seen it three times just to make sure I agree with what I initially wanted to express with the film as a whole. The other augmented story elements worked out for the better and make the film a bigger and better product. But on those extra viewings, the only thing standing out were some of the effect shots that seemed a little rushed or badly executed. But it is a very enjoyable R film that deserves to be seen and loved because it is so pure and original with hints of Bond, Bourne and Bauer.
If we didn’t have the ability to experience his fantasy filled “zoning out” spells along with him, he would seem to be a pretty dull guy.
However, he doesn’t just have those thoughts while mowing the grass or on a quiet weekend when he is alone, he has them all the time, mentally and physically checking out in the middle of conversation. However, for himself, he left behind the dreams of that skateboarding kid, and worse, felt a wound from his father’s death that he didn’t know how to deal with.
I believe we can begin to see how Walter’s imagination could get away from him, but more importantly, I think it is something many men can relate to, though to a lesser degree.


Walter Mitty is a guy that lost himself when he lost his dad and his adventures are a way for him to find himself and deal with the death of his father. Galahad (Firth), reunites with a troubled youth (Egerton) and decides to put him in for the selection process. There is a part of him that is still trying to live out the life that his dad would have wanted. Withstanding the most dangerous tests, the Kingsman hopefuls compete against each other while a new world crisis is bubbling on the horizon from to tech genius, Valentine (Jackson).
Insults toward the author, MNC, or other commenters will result in comment removal and possible ban. While helping his mom move into a new place his sister finds an unused backpack of his with an equally unused travel journal.
Instead of living that life like Sean O’Connell (the adventurous photographer played by Sean Penn), he lives it in his imagination. Then another thing happens, which is just such good writing: O’Connell doesn’t take the picture. Not only is the movie fun to watch, the story is chocked full of subtle but deep sub-stories that leave you thinking about its meaning, both for yourself and the characters, long after you’ve watched it. He says that when the moment is just right he wants to stay in it without the distraction of the camera.
In an age where everything is shared in an instant, those personal moments can become fewer and fewer.
We get the impression that his dad was pretty awesome; taking him to skateboarding competitions and giving him a mohawk.
