Kingsman: The Secret Service Review- Move Over Bond!

Star Cast: Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson, Mark Strong, Sophie Cookson, Sofia Boutella, and Michael Caine.


Director: Matthew Vaughn


Claps For:Being audaciously funny and intentionally over-the-top


Slaps For:Nothing really


Popcorn Refill:Interval only


Story: Based upon the acclaimed comic book by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons, Kingsman: The Secret Service tells the story of a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into the agency's ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius. Gary 'Eggsy' Unwin (Egerton) is an intelligent street kid who is off track and gets recruited by Harry Hart (Firth) from an independant-operating, super-secret spy organization. The baddie tech genius Valentine (Jackson), who is more funny than demonic, has a master plan to save the planet, but not everyone residing in it!


Performance: Colin Firth carries out the role of the cool, gentleman spy with grace. I was initially a bit skeptical about this casting, but all my doubts were simply thrashed. How did I doubt Colin Firth the actor? It makes you wonder why Firth was never considered for playing Bond and perhaps, this is to all those who never chose him! Sorry, my bad! He fits into the character of the suave spy with ease and is a scene-stealer. Taron Egerton plays the role of the rough, uncouth street-kid-turned-James-Bondesque-spy quite convincingly. Mark Strong and Michael Caine are as dependable as ever. Samuel Jackson is funny, playing the evil genius with a lisp and really seems to be enjoying the character. Sophia Boutella and Sophie Cookson as the action babes are good.


Direction: Matthew Vaughn has done a terrific job pulling off this movie. It is audacious, risky and certainly not to everyone's tastes. It seems like a parody of James Bond films, but kind of respects it too! He gets the casting spot-on and so does the fight scenes. The church scene is brutal but wonderful and just keeps away from being too gory! The humour is good and there is an abundance of the f-word. It may to be suited to all, but surely does the job for those who are okay with it. The movie begins a bit slow and then just hits you! It is predictable, no doubt, but the treatment is different and very much enjoyable. 'Wildly Entertaining' sums up the movie at best!


Combo-on-Offer: A spy movie laced with excellent action scenes, dark humour and excellent actors. Intentionally over-the-top!


Verdict: A definite watch where entertainment is guaranteed!
