The 602 Club: A Geekery Speakeasy
18: Mr. Darcy Kicks Ass


In 1962 Dr. No hit the big screen and James Bond became the gold standard for spy movies. Throughout the years many films have parodied or paid homage to the spy genre Austin Powers, In Like Flint, Never Say Never Again are just a few examples. Spy movies have continued to be some of the most successful film franchises with The Bourne series as well as Bond still going strong and upcoming sequels are currently the works. 

In this episode of The 602 Club host Matthew Rushing is joined by Norman Lao to talk about the latest spy movie, Kingsman: The Secret Service based loosely on Mark Miller'c comic, The Secret Service. We discuss Matthew Vaughn choosing to direct Kingsman over Days of Future Past, being back in the spy game, the idea of a sequel, the themes of the film, the cast, whether seriousness ruins spy movies, plus a few things that just didn't work.
