A spy organization runs teenagers through their program in search for their next spy just in time to take down a new global threat who is a twisted tech genius. 

My thoughts on the film

Kingsman: The Secret Service might not have been on your radar. It stars notable actors such as Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson and Michael Caine, and while the trailer is rather entertaining, it certainly does not really get you excited like maybe a superhero film would. Well, this is where I come in to tell you, forget Fifty Shades of Grey this weekend, go hit up Kingsman: The Secret Service. 

Kingsman is directed by Matthew Vaughn, who has also directed Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class, both great films and he can now add Kingsman to the list. Kingsman has a lot of similarities to Kick-Ass as it’s different, funny and has pure entertainment value. However, similar to Kick-Ass, Kingsman may not be for everyone due to it’s violence, but for the most part, it’s more of the crazy, laughable violence, if you know what I mean. The action in it is great and the comedy piece of it was on point.
The cast was great. I couldn’t imagine Colin Firth starring in a film like this, but he was great. You might not recognize the kid, Taron Egerton, as this was his first feature film, but along with Colin Firth, did a great job. Samuel L. Jackson was really funny as he usually is and Michael Caine‘s role was rather small and there’s not much else to say about him.  
As for the storyline, Kingsman really goes after the spy genre by poking fun at it and it works. Some of the scenes will be a bit of a stretch for some, but that’s on purpose because they are making a point about spy films. You’ll certainly need to check out a little before watching Kingsman because of its type of humour/violence. 

Rating 5/5

Kingsman: The Secret Service is a fun and entertaining film. This is extremely early, but the Kingsman: The Secret Service could be 2015’s surprise hit. 

Kingsman: The Secret Service is now in theatres.
