Film Review - Kingsman the Secret Service (2015)

Kingsman the Secret Service is based off of a spy comic by Mark Millar and is directed by Matthew Vaughn who made the first Kick Ass film as well as X-Men First Class and here the story is Colin Firth plays an Agent of the Kingsman Secret Service who has to fight the deadly Valentine (Samuel L Jackson) from conquering the world.

Man oh man was this film so much fun and I am ever glad Vaughn decided to do this film instead of Days of Future Past as here he feels right at home as this film is exciting, action packed, funny, satirical as well as a little emotional here, Firth makes for a very dashing spy hero and newcomer Taron Edgerton is very good here as Eggsy.

But they're not all, Mark Strong, Michael Caine, Mark Hamill and Sofia Boutella are also excellent and Jackson was pretty good here as well despite the lisp, the action scenes here are incredibly well handled and the film is also very funny and there were a couple of times where I laughed out loud plus I loved its cine literature moments and overall British feel combining the old and the new.

Overall folks this is an extremely strong action picture and for me is going to be hard to top with the other big ones coming this year but I hope they're up to the task, 5 out of 5.
