Kingsman: The Secret Service


Harry Hart is part of an elite secret spy organization called the Kingsman. When he finds a regular street kid named Gary "Eggsy" Unwin down on his luck, he recruits him into the ultra intense training program. Meanwhile, criminal tech mastermind Valentine is planning a mass genocide to wipe out certain DNA codes. When the Kingsman learn about the crime, Hart and Eggsy have to spring into action, track down the mastermind and his weapon and sift through a web of traitors to stop his plot.

“Kingsman: The Secret Service” makes me remember the good old James Bond movies from back when he actually had almost black hair (not particularly judging Daniel Craig here, but I do like the “British black-haired gentleman” look more than the blond one). After watching the movie, I find myself liking it a lot because it does quite a good job at telling a good spy story, though there were some downsides to it as well. For example, there were some moments throughout the film where I just couldn't get my mind off of the thought “This is just ridiculous” and I kind of felt it to be too action packed at points. Of course, those are just my thoughts and overall I really liked the film. So if you haven't already, you ought to watch it for yourself.

"Kingsman: The Secret Service" is the latest movie from writer, director Matthew Vaughn (Kick Ass, X-Men First Class). It's an over the top and super entertaining action movie with enough laughs and thrills to keep you busy all the way through. Colin Firth (Harry Hart) and relatively unknown actor Taron Egerton (Eggsy) really carry the movie with ease. They have great chemistry but also go well with all the rest of the cast. Most spy movies nowaday try to be way to serious but Kingsman does the complete opposite and actually parodies 80's spy movies with great success. Definitely one of the best spy movies in recent memory.

“Kingsman: The Secret Service” is a throwback to the classic spy movies you know and love like James Bond and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. The sometimes ridiculous plot is a treat for some and a downside for others. It makes the movie funny and exciting film but could also leave with a “Wait, what?” thought. Furthermore “Kingsman: The Secret Service” packs a bit more action than what we are used to with these British gentleman spy movies and though this could be a treat for some viewers, it could also throw off others. When it comes to acting performances, Colin Firth and Taron Egerton did excellent jobs portraying their characters and their chemistry is lots of fun to watch. In the end “Kingsman: The Secret Service” could very well be one of the best spy movies from the past couple of years.
