Harry Hart (Colin Firth) is a head of an elite spy organization called “Kingsman”. After one of his agents gets killed in one of the missions, he sees a lot of potential in Eggsy (Taran Egerton), a London street kid who has no job and spends most of his time at a pub and getting into trouble with the law. He recruits him as one of the possible replacement agents. Eggsy undergoes in dangerous training. Meanwhile, Richmond Valentine (Samuel L. Jackson), a billionaire with a lisp who cannot stand the sight of blood, plans a mass genocide by selling SIM cards, so when people buy them, they’ll get a signal which causes them to become violent. Hart and Eggsy spring into action to save the world.
Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class) makes a fun satire on British spy movies, particularly James Bond. You got the heroes and villains in suits, amusing puns and one-liners, and an awesome variety of gadgets. Although it can be too far-fetched and mean-spirited, there is a lot to enjoy. It’s great to see three of the best British actors – Colin Firth, Mark Strong, and Michael Caine – as the leads. Firth, in particular, can do no wrong. Not to mention performing most of his stunts during the film’s most amazing fight sequences. Jackson plays one of the best villains in recent years. If anyone doesn’t take this movie seriously, especially with the scene involving a fight at a hate church, I guarantee they will have a great time.
