Kingsman: The Secret Service rated R, is an action spy comedy with a January 2015 UK release, that reminded me of a 007 movie but with more humor. 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 his baby son 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 recognized, and you may even spot Mark (Luke Skywalker) Hamill in a supporting role. The movie was action from the start and combined with the humor 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.
