A breath of fresh air in pretty stale action film industry. This super modern but at the same time old timey Bondesque adventure gets you in a grip and doesn’t let go until the end credits. Colin Firth is brilliant for, pardon me, an old man. And the kid slays it. Sam M. F. L. Jackson walks on the line between a Bond villain and… well, Austin Powers villain. Yeah, because of the lisp, mostly.
Vaughn made highly entertaining film, which was expected, but you feel like it is almost the best comic-book-to-film transfer ever. But it could be the blockbuster of the year, at least for now.
