In this new movie, Eggsy (Taron Egerton) is now a full-fledged member of the Kingsmen, a spy agency masquerading as a posh tailor shop. When a rejected Kingsman applicant works with an insane drug lord called Poppy (Julianne Moore) to take revenge and destroy all the Kingsmen headquarters, Eggsy and remaining survivor Merlin (Mark Strong) go to America to seek help from their spy cousins, called Statesmen, who own a far more profitable whiskey business as a front than their English counterpart.
September looks like a really boring month. I'm looking at the whole list of films that are coming out and feeling a sense of profound disinterest in almost everything being shown. It is slightly better than August, in that there are three movies I am sort of interested in, whereas I only had two last month, but the movie lineup just looks so unappealing to me. And the trend continues for the rest of the year.
Though 2014 wasn't a remarkable year for Hollywood, 2015 is looking good. Every entertainment website on the internet, whether of note or not, has already listed their most anticipated movies for the year, so I shan't add my voice to the chatter. (I agree with most of them anyway. Besides, if you read my blog often enough, you already know what film I want to watch the most this year.)
If the stellar duo of Colin Firth and Alan Rickman, and the prestigious pedigree of the Coen brothers had attracted you to Gambit, you will be sorely disappointed.
