You can call it luck or you can call it skill, or maybe it’s both when it comes to Matthew Vaughn’s work as a film director and producer, often getting movies made using his own money. His latest movie as a producer, Eddie the Eagle, might seem like a dramatic departure from his previous work adapting and translating graphic novels to the screen, but like Kick-Ass and Kingsman: The Secret Service, it’s a movie that will win over the audiences that see it.
