KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE
Kingsman: The Secret Service is a spy-fi subgenre action comedy film, directed by Matthew Vaughn, and based on the comic book The Secret Service, created by Dave Gibbons and Mark Millar. The screenplay was written by Vaughn and Jane Goldman. The film stars Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson, Mark Strong, Taron Egerton and Michael Caine. It follows the recruitment and training of a potential secret agent, Gary “Eggsy” Unwin, into a secret spy organisation. Eggsy joins a mission to tackle a global threat from Richmond Valentine, a wealthy eco-terrorist.
During a raid in the Middle East a probationary secret agent sacrifices himself to save his team. Feeling guilt over the loss of his colleague, Harry Hart, code-named “Galahad,” personally delivers a bravery medal to the agent’s widow, Michelle Unwin, and her young son, Gary “Eggsy” Unwin, saying that if they ever need help, they should call the phone number on the back of the medal and deliver a coded message.
This is one of the best bond knock-off movies I have ever seen. From the very beginning, this movie grabs you and never stops. The action just keeps getting beter and better and better. Good fights is an understatement. Epic is more like it. I truly enjoyed this movie down to a T. Adult situations occur now and again… so this is definitely for a more mature audience but still its just that good. I felt it should have come out during summer but as it stands, it had to be the prettiest ugly girl in the room which is not a bad way to go down…
