The Visit- Review

The Visit is M. NIght Shamylan’s latest trip into the horror genre. He has been on a decline over the last few years. The Visit has some high points and low points. Mostly average overall for me. I did enjoy the film quite a bit actually. The film is set in a rural Penn. town when two children go visit their grandparents whom they have never met. The mother is going away on a cruise and is estranged from her parents after a falling out. The weekend that ensues is one from a nightmare that the children will not soon forget.

The Visit is more of the same from M. Night. The film is much better than any movie he has made over the last few years. its his best movie since The Village. The twist was a bit predictable but not ion all fashions. It still had me surprised at the end of the film.

The stand out performance was Tyler, played by Ed Oxenbould. he was hilarious. He was a rapper and played the typical teenager. Over all it had scares, humor, and suspense all of what M. Night’s movies need.

Kingsman is the latest superhero comic book flick by director Matthew Vaughn. Kingsman is a British spy thriller that would best be described as Kickass meets James bond. The movie is based off of the comic book mini-series The Secret Service by Mark Millar, the same writer as previously released Vaughn flick Kick-Ass.

The KIngsman is a fast paced ride that does not end until the film credits are rolling. The fun with the film is that is pulls no punches and knows exactly what kind of film it is. KIngsman is fun,brutal, and unapologetic.

Eggsy is a poor “bloke” who is somewhat of a mischievous young adult. He is always in trouble and constantly running into problems with local gangs. He finds himself in a bit of trouble yet again only to be bailed out by a secret organization his father once worked for before dying in an act of heroism. He is mentored by Ghalahad who knew Eggsy’s father and ends up taking him under his wing. Eggsy is optioned with joining the group of elite spies by joining other candidates.

The film goes on with not much character development outside of Eggsy.  The characters are extremely fun and provide an extremely enjoyable show to watch. The mix of humor and action is another coup for viewers and fans of Vaughn’s previous works. Ghalahad played by Firth was a big hit on my end. I truly enjoyed him and his scenes, The fight scenes were where this movie truly shined. With a nice mix of conventional fight techniques mixed with parkour and a barrage  of unconventional weapons this is truly a way to make fights more enjoyable.

Overall Kingsman was a fun watch. A 7/10 and I would watch it again. If you are a fan of comic books films or violent fun action comedies check it out.
