Move over Bond
Move over Bond, we have a new spy in town.
Kingsman: The Secret Service revolves around Harry Hart (Colin Firth) who is an agent in a secret society, The Kingsman. He has just lost an agent and must inform the family of the agent, including the man’s son, Gary Unwin or also known as Eggy (Taron Egerton).
Harry Hart leaves a meddle with the family with his number, stating if they ever need help that he will be one call away. Fast forward a few years. Eggy needed help getting out of jail and decides to call the number on the back of the meddle. Harry comes and gets him out of jail, and ultimately, introduces him to the secret service. What will happen when a young man who is a rebel in the secret service? Will he thrive? Who will they fight?
This movie is actually surprisingly good. When I first saw the trailer, I thought this movie was going to really stupid and a bad rip off of the Bond series, but ultimately, I was surprised. This movie was very funny at parts because of the humor that the young rebellious man had, as well as just the overall acting of the whole crew.
The only way I can compare this movie is if I said it was a mix between Austin Powers minus the stupidness, and the Bond series minus the seriousness. The action scenes were ultimately amazing as well. They will keep you at the edge of your seat, ready to take the next turn on the roller coaster called KingsMan. My only gripe that I had was this movie was the length.
I feel like it could have been a little bit shorter. My one complaint is that at times it does get a little boring between the action scenes, but as soon as it does return to the action scenes, I am so pumped up that I forget about the dull parts. Overall, pretty good movie, and do recommend a go see for this one, especially with the lull in the movie season.
