May I Kill U?
In today’s new cinema release, we chat to Hayley-Marie Axe who plays Val in new British black-comedy ‘May I Kill U?’ Although you may not have seen her on the screen that much as she’s mostly been in theatre, keep watching an actress who has tipped to be an up-and-comer with an insatiable love of acting. Hayley-Marie is also a virally successful actress in a few online web shows that have proven to be quite successful in America which is a clever way to globalise herself.
No matter how much you see Kevin Bishop around, it’s hard to get the memory of him in The Muppets’ Treasure Island out of your mind. This film does try quite hard to distance him from the childhood film that birthed the comedic actor, going from a Muppet helper to a murdering cycling policeman who gains notoriety and fame for his vigilantism. Where it’s a bit heavy-handed with the social commentary with characters all seemingly agreeing with his ways and few, if any, questioning them until the third act, it’s a bit weak with challenging the vigilante. It could be a comment on how extreme it has now become; it comes off more as a bit shallow in the writing.
