Movie Review: SING

Jackson, Mark Strong, Sofia Boutella, Sophie Cookson, Michael Caine Writers: Jane Goldman & Matthew Vaughn, based on the comic book THE SECRET SERVICE by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons Director: Matthew Vaughn Distributor: Twentieth Century Fox Release Date: February 13, 2015 It’s hard to know how to quantify KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE. Based on THE SECRET SERVICE comic book series by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons, the movie starts off as a James Bondian superspy adventure, with big action, big violence and upper-class English people who can use strong language with […]Read On »
