Writer Kitty Reviews “Kingsman: The Secret Service”

Standard

Have you seen “Kingsman: The Secret Service?”

I did! I loved it!!

They had this scene where they each had to train a dog, and the main character, Eggsy, picked a little pug named JB (short for Jack Bauer). He was so cute!

JB stole the show, but Samuel L. Jackson played a pretty pawtastic villain.

What can we writers learn from this movie?

  1. Never underestimate the power of cute animals to make a movie memorable.
  2. Nothing raises the stakes like a likable villain 10 steps ahead of the hero at all times.
  3. Like a good video game, this movie had layers of villains, including a pretty baller sub-boss, the lady with the razor legs. Meaningful acceleration of conflict builds momentum, and that makes for an exciting story.

That’s what I got from it at least! What do you think?

Power to the Paw!

Love,

Hazel
