Kingsman: The Secret Service

I remember being disappointed by Kingsman the first time I watched it. I think it’s because I wanted something that was a bit less wacky, and I really hated Samuel L. Jackson’s character and his annoying lisp. After seeing the trailers for the sequel, which to me looked super fun, I decided to give the first film another shot, and actually really enjoyed it this time. Maybe it’s because I went in this time knowing what to expect, but I was much more into the ride we’re given, and the action sequences were still just as entertaining as I remembered them being (especially the church scene). Sure, I still don’t like Jackson’s character, but it wasn’t enough to ruin the film for me this time.
