It Looks Like Colin Firth Is Officially Back For 'Kingsman: The Golden Circle'


Colin Firth Pedro Pascal Taron Egerton Matthew Vaughan

Colin Firth’s return for Kingsman sequel The Golden Circle appears to be official, just months after a poster was released teasing that his character might not be dead after all. Firth played agent Harry Hart in the first movie, but the character was killed off before the end, leaving his protege Eggsy (played by Taron Egerton) to take his place as the newest Kingsman.

Layer Cake Review


Excellent
Matthew Vaughan, producer behind the entire Guy Ritchie oeuvre (Lock, Stock, & Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch, and... er... Swept Away), makes his directorial debut with Layer Cake, another tale from the British criminal underworld that thankfully avoids any association with aging pop icons. Instead, Vaughan opts to take some of the elements of Ritchie's earlier work - colorful deviants, dark humor, Seinfeld-esque coincidence - and give them his own, slightly more somber spin. The result is an engaging 104 minutes that stakes its own claim on the genre.

Daniel Craig is credited as "XXXX" (oh, if only he were the new "XXX"), a "businessman," as he puts it, whose name we never learn. His business just happens to be cocaine. He plays by a strict set of rules - pay connections on time; keep a low profile, etc. And, like every other lowlife with whom we're supposed to sympathize in a gangster film, he's just about to retire. Until his boss, Jimmy Price (Kenneth Cranham) throws him two curveballs that shoot his plans all to hell.
