The king of February movies

The early months of the year are usually subject to rather forgettable films within theaters.

   The early months of the year are usually subject to rather forgettable films within theaters.        Since the Oscars have announced the winners of the most prestigious films of 2015, many film critics must wait until the later months of the year to review potentially high-end movies. This isn’t to say that there is not a single film worth seeing that would be perfect for a group of friends.    Kingsman: The Secret Service is the ideal movie for college students to watch during the slow winter movie season. It is action-packed, full of comedy (mostly inappropriate) and original.     Kingsman is what you would get if you combined a comedic Austin Powers movie with a serious James Bond film, but instead of cliché spy tropes, this film actually purposely does the opposite.     For disclosure: this movie has a lot of dark comedic undertones, so I would not recommend it for anyone who is sensitive to cinematic blood.     All and all, this movie is the perfect contrary to the serious nature of most Oscar nominated films. So, if you want to just sit down, relax and be thoroughly entertained without being boggled with complex interpretations, then this movie is perfect! (And speaking of being entertained, Samuel L. Jackson plays the villain with a lisp….need I say more?)     With an original screenplay and impressive camera shots of intense action scenes, Kingsmen is sure to entertain.
