“A spy organization recruits an unrefined, but promising street kid into the agency’s ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius.”
Remember the name Taron Egerton, because he is going to BLOW UP. Kingsman is a truly first class, kickass, layer cake of action, adventure and comedy (who got those Matthew Vaughn jokes?). The directing style of Matthew Vaughn is truly perfectly suited for a movie like this that needs to be visceral and sharp, yet be able to go over the top when necessary. This movie is also just as long as it needs to be, paced perfectly,and acted superbly. Every role here is superbly cast, and Egerton does really well to hold his own against people like Colin Firth and Mark Strong.Colin Firth is also very impressive here, with some very good stunt work. In the vein of movies like John Wick, Kingsman knows exactly what it is, and it brings the entertainment from start to finish, with surprises around every corner. If you like no holds bared action, witty satire, with great timing and direction, you can’t go wrong with Kingsman. Some people who aren’t familiar with Matthew Vaughn’s work might find some parts of the movie to be a bit strange, or a little too off the wall, but it fits this story perfectly and only ads to the overall narrative and world building done here. You WILL want to see it more than once.
