    A “secret agent” (?) on prosthetic lower legs… And it’s not my only gripe. This script feels kind of lame.

    Oh, well…

    I guess a Tesla is better than no Tesla.

    Yeah it seems like a lame movie unfortunately. It's pretty sad to see hollywood-directors making the same movies over and over again....I wanna see something new. When Matrix came in 1999 it was something new. When Saw came in 2004 it was something new. When Ironman came in 2008 it was....sort of semi-new. When Avatar came in 2009 it was something new. Time to get more creative!!

    I think the Matrix would have had more success and would have been even better if Will Smith accepted the role.

    Realising this movie had not come out... I looked it up to see if it had been moved, and it has. New release date February 2015.

    Movies that are released in that timeframe are usually crap, so we should not hold up much hope, even if there is a Tesla in it.

    I saw this movie tonight and I noticed the Model S. I didn't know about it before hand. The movie was quite good!

    Watching 50 Shades, Mr. Grey drives a Model S.

    Just saw Kingsmen. Not sure if it was intentional but there seemed to be two other nods to Elon in the movie. Won't spoil it for you but OMG Elon could be a support villian. :biggrin:

    Given that author took one of the first UK deliveries, hardly surprising.

    She probably put more effort into her order than the movie.

    I try to only watch the first half of movie trailers (movie trailers usually spoil too much otherwise). In this case, that was just after the Model S appeared! Here's hoping it gets some sweet eye candy shots in the film.

    Honestly, I think the movie looks quite fun. Will definitely try to catch it in theatres.

    Enjoyed the movie.

    Not much of a Tesla ad, just the rear quarter. By the time I whispered "Tesla" it was gone. Lizzie's response was "you sure?"

    That's how it was in 50 Shades, by the time I was grabbing my phone it was gone.:rolleyes:

    I've heard the movie (50 shades, not Kingsmen) is total cr4p. Then again, she was only responsible for the books, not the movie?
