Movie Review: Kingsman: The Secret Service

By  Justin Carreiro     7:46 AM    Labels:,,,, 

I grew up watching James Bond. As a child, I was captivated with the many adventures of 007. Everything from taking down a media mogul to stopping a satellite from destroying London - I've watched all the films and played most of the video games. I like a good secret agent film. While the latest film I'm reviewing today isn't a James Bond movie, it is another British spy comedy where the main characters are secret agents. This mini-movie review is for the spy flick: Kingsman: The Secret Service.

The Premise: Gary "Eggsy" (played by Taron Egerton) is a delinquent young adult living in London. After being arrested for stealing a car, Eggsy calls upon a favour from "Galahad" (Colin Firth) and is freed with a catch. He agrees to audition for a top secret group of British spies, The Kingsman, and join their ranks to stop the villainous Richmond Valentine (Samuel L. Jackson) from destroying the world.

The Results: 2/5!
Kingsman: The Secret Service was a campy secret agent movie that featured plenty of action and comedy moments. Taron Egerton did a great job and Colin Firth never disappoints in whatever role he does. I wasn't exactly blown away by the movie. Nothing new was really approached and it seemed like another spy drama featuring a young guy, like Agent Cody Banks or Alex Rider. Before watching the flick, I wouldn't recommend going in with high expectations. However, it was an enjoyably fun film and a good popcorn movie to watch if you're up to seeing it.
