Why Do We Love English Spy Movies?

http://youtu.be/kl8F-8tR8to

Is it the accent, the uber cool demeanor overlaying wicked cartoon violence? This movie should be a hoot.

In a word, yes!

As one of the commenters posted, Colin Firth as action hero? Sold!

It's on my short list.

Not a big fan of their movies except for the 007 ones. In a word, BOOBS.

"Maybe we just sound right"

Have a soft spot for English Spy movies... Love the 007 movies, hoping to have some free time to see Kingsman when it comes out.

Not sure I like the current crop of 007 though.

Who'se we? I used to enjoy Bond movies as a kid but I've sort of grown out of them as I got older. The idea of the British secret service being of use to anybody but the KGB is laughable.

Having said that. This one does look like it could be fun. But I'm getting a bit tired of over the top action that's so overwhelming I almost fall asleep in the midst of it.

Hopefully this one wont be like that.

Firth is one of the reasons i wouldn't go to see it because having driven him and the other two main actors, Samuel L. Jackson and Michael Caine numerous times over the past 25 years I've found that he is the most arrogant and pompous prick I've driven.
Or maybe a close second to Axel Rose.
