The end of “Kingsman” left me with a strange feeling.
There was a huge royal wedding - the perfect ending of every fairytale where true love wins. So why didn’t I left the cinema smiling?
Because of the look on Harry Hart’s face. This man looked death in the eye and survived. He got his memory back, he is alive but … just look at his life right now.
All his colleagues are dead. All his friends are dead. His best friend died right in front of him. His home is a ruin, all his stuff and his memories there are destroyed - the butterflies, the pictures, Mr. Pickle. The boy he lo… Eggsy is probably gone to live in Sweden with Tilde. And Harry still needs to deal with the feelings of murdering a whole church.
Harry is all alone in London. His only companion is Mr. Pickle jr. That look on his face in that last scene … he is saying goodbye to his last friend.
This broke my heart and just the thought of it makes me sad.
It kind of reminded me of that big theatre scene at the end of “Moulin Rouge”. All the people are cheering for the magnificent show and no one sees the real tragic behind the curtain. It’s just like that. Vaughn showed us the fairytale ending with a princess & a prince, the perfect happy end. Behind the curtain is Harry Hart, all by himself.
And that’s just one thing of a long list of sad “TGC” stuff like all those unnecessary deaths.
