Kingsman is the latest superhero comic book flick by director Matthew Vaughn. Kingsman is a British spy thriller that would best be described as Kickass meets James bond. The movie is based off of the comic book mini-series The Secret Service by Mark Millar, the same writer as previously released Vaughn flick Kick-Ass.
The KIngsman is a fast paced ride that does not end until the film credits are rolling. The fun with the film is that is pulls no punches and knows exactly what kind of film it is. KIngsman is fun,brutal, and unapologetic.
Eggsy is a poor “bloke” who is somewhat of a mischievous young adult. He is always in trouble and constantly running into problems with local gangs. He finds himself in a bit of trouble yet again only to be bailed out by a secret organization his father once worked for before dying in an act of heroism. He is mentored by Ghalahad who knew Eggsy’s father and ends up taking him under his wing. Eggsy is optioned with joining the group of elite spies by joining other candidates.
The film goes on with not much character development outside of Eggsy. The characters are extremely fun and provide an extremely enjoyable show to watch. The mix of humor and action is another coup for viewers and fans of Vaughn’s previous works. Ghalahad played by Firth was a big hit on my end. I truly enjoyed him and his scenes, The fight scenes were where this movie truly shined. With a nice mix of conventional fight techniques mixed with parkour and a barrage of unconventional weapons this is truly a way to make fights more enjoyable.
Overall Kingsman was a fun watch. A 7/10 and I would watch it again. If you are a fan of comic books films or violent fun action comedies check it out.
