The spy genre suffers from a sameness that a film like Kingsman: The Secret Service clearly wants to avoid.
Both grand and gimmicky with enough effervescence and energy to make up for the mid-February release date, Kingsman: The Secret Service is a solid spy spoof that never quite comes together as an equally effective thriller. 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.
Distributed through DVD, and online (through streaming media), the film and the subsequent publication of a book by the same name and of the same topic as the film, has attracted interest from media figures such as Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres, and Larry King as well as criticism from the mainstream press. It has to play by the rules of said tropes, but in the hands of director Matthew Vaughn, these recognizable beats become twisted cinematic Pixy Stix.
We are supposed to nod our heads at the recognizable narrative conceits (older mentor with a backstory, current trainee with a chip on his shoulder, various internal bigwigs with their own agendas, an over the top camp villain, his lethal lady sidekick) and then watch as they get circumvented and reconfigured. He didn’t know it, but he was part of an independent espionage organization known as The Kingsmen.
Kingsman: The Secret Service does the same, except instead of aiming for aggressive, it tries for anarchy.
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. Now, as an angry adolescent slacker, he is recruited by his dad’s old buddy Harry Hart (Colin Firth) to join the team.
Oh sure, it pops like a jet-propelled Jack-in-the-box at times, but it’s often held back by what it wants to be vs.
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. The overall effect, however, is a tad tiring, the giddy highs of the kinetic action scenes often weighed down by weird moments of expositional ennui.
Instead, it pulls back, once again relying on the devices it swears it’s deconstructing in order to get our lead from zero to hero. There is a part of him that is still trying to live out the life that his dad would have wanted.
It’s like a movie mix-tape, merging together multiple ideas and inventions without letting one or more truly sink in. 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. The film also suggests that there has been a strong tendency by those in positions of power to keep this central principle hidden from the public. In fact, the slightly subversive tone allows for the lesser elements to go down all the more smoothly. So he intends to use a free smartphone SIM card as a means of controlling the human race, and at the right time, sending a signal out that will cause them to kill each other. In an age where everything is shared in an instant, those personal moments can become fewer and fewer.
Some of these individuals, at their Web sites, promote the film and their connection to it. We get the impression that his dad was pretty awesome; taking him to skateboarding competitions and giving him a mohawk.
Other people involved in the film, who have spoken of their strong belief in the Law of Attraction include Esther Hicks and Jerry Hicks (original edition only), Mike Dooley, Bob Doyle, David Schirmer, and Marci Shimoff. The universe will handle all the details, you could not even predict the people, circumstances and events that will come into your experience to assist you with your goal. 1) there is nothing so powerful as the truth 2) in this world its not what you take up that makes you rich, for it is rather what you give up that makes you rich, 3) if you believe you can achieve, 4) prayers are the top keys to having whatever you want and they do work because I am speaking from experience, 5) everything you want and need is already here, for instance if you want to go and catch fish, you must have a fishing rod, you must get near water, doesn’t that make sense? To many of us want something but we are not willing to align ourselves up with what we are looking for. By means if you want to cut grass you will need a lawn mower or weed eater, also you have to be around grass.
Lets talk on a different level, the universe like speed and whatever you want or are trying to do, secondly you can do anything you put your mind to.
