Kingsman: The Secret Service was released in the UK in January 2015 and is an action spy comedy that reminded me of a 007 movie but with more humour. It starts during a mission in the middle east that goes wrong when a probationary service agent sacrifices himself to protect his superior Harry Hart (Colin Firth). Hart blames himself for the death and returns to London where he gives the son of the killed operative an engraved medal.
Jump forward seventeen years and the boy, nicknamed Eggsy (Taron Egerton) has become a typical London chav who is always in trouble with the police. On his latest arrest he dials the number on the medal and so starts a whole new chapter of his life.

The movie also stars Samuel L. Jackson and Michael Caine along with a few others that I recognised, and you might even spot Mark (Luke Skywalker) Hamill in a supporting role. The movie was action from the start and combined with the humour the two hours flew along. The acting was good and the story, albeit sometimes predictable, was well written. There is bad language in this movie but not overly used and a line near the end may shock you, as I certainly didn’t expect it in there 😊

I would rate this a very high 4/5 and I hope the sequel is just as entertaining.

    I hesitated on this movie, because I had never heard of it before. Then I decided lets try it. I laughed through most of it and it was full of action and adventure! I did not see Mark Hamill I will look closer the next viewing. 4.5 out of 5 stars

    I’ve either seen this before or I’m remembering the trailer. I would like to see this movie but I can’t afford the luxury of a pay-per-view site. This is the kind of adventure movie I like, with a dash of humor…or should I say humour?

    I will definitely check this one out if it comes up on my satellite schedule. Sounds like it has a great cast.
