Kingsman: The Secret Service – Review

It would appear that the secret to success in the spy game is all about the threads your wearing, a specifically tailored three-piece to be precise.

Kingsman: The Secret Service is the new explosive action-comedy blockbuster from Kick-Ass director Matthew Vaughn that takes the spy-genre in a whole new direction that will leave you wanting more.

Eggsy (Taron Egerton) is a product of his generation, unemployed, unrefined, and completely without limits when it comes to the law, fitting then perhaps that a secret organisation has been keeping tabs on his unique abilities.

When the weight of the law finally begins to bear down on him, Eggsy finds himself under the guidance of Harry Hart (Colin Firth), a super-secret spy who works for a government organisation that’s so secret, not even MI5 know they exist, and so smartly dressed they make the Royal Family look scruffy.

Things though will not be as simple as they seem for Eggsy and his new found path to meaning – in his way lies an almost impossible and ultra-competitive training programme for the most promising of agents.

However, every great spy needs an arch-nemesis that will test them to their limits – for Eggsy, this foe comes in the form of billionaire tech genius Valentine (Samuel L. Jackson) who seems hellbent on culling the world’s population with a piece of technology so powerful it can infect the world’s entire population at the click of a button.

Kingsman: The Secret Service is a refreshing action spectacle that has you hooked from beginning to end, with tons of laughs and some of the greatest fight scenes ever seen in a spy film. Colin Firth continues to prove in unwavering versatility in a performance so unexpectedly bad-ass, that it leaves you completely mind-blown.

A must see on the big screen and with plenty of bass thrown in!
