For an alternative those of you who didn’t feel like seeing Fifty Shades of Grey, Kingsman The Secret Service is likely to be a lot more fun and won’t require you to blush as much. Kingsman is one of those come hither, James Bond-ish type films full of Colin Firth swag you have been waiting for.
The story revolves around Gary “Eggsy” Unwin (Taron Egerton), whose late father secretly worked for a spy organization, and who lives in a South London housing estate with a life seemingly bound for one behind bars. However, dapper agent Harry Hart (Colin Firth) recognizes potential in the youth and so recruits him to be a trainee in the secret service. Meanwhile, villainous Richmond Valentine (Samuel L. Jackson) launches a diabolical plan to solve the problem of climate change via a worldwide killing spree. Everyone loves a spy movie with some old fashioned style and a twist of new world action to it. The best part of Kingsman The Secret Service, is that it’s been one of those films teased for the last couple of years. Full of action, fancy cars and some funny English humor, Kingsman delivers. I give it four stars easy for the entertainment factor. However, there is a bit of blood spatter so for the queasy ones… just be careful.
Director Matthew Vaughn
