Kingsman: Secret Service is not a parody of Bond films or other spy thrillers of the same genre, but rather a refreshing ode to the global spy films that have kept people entertained for generations. In order to set itself apart, the filmmakers have crafted a film that is a hyper visualized, sleek, violent, with a twist of cheekiness action spy movie that hits familiar beats, but with a completely different style, and panache. This may not seem interesting, but this is unlike any Bond or Bourne film you have seen. This film is serious, funny and sprinkled with cringe worthy violence all at the same time.
The story comes from the same mold has previous forays into the world of global domination. An evil villain, has a plot to take over the world, and a secret organization sends their best agent in to save the day. As I have said, this may seem cliché, but the creators of this film takes the clichés, and turns them inside out! Samuel Jackson who plays the villain, steals the show as always, and his evil sidekick is a bad maaammmaaa jaammmaaa! The heroes, Galahad, played by Colin Firth and Eggsy, played by Taron Egerton aren’t too shabby themselves, and they bring a nice new vision to the traditional Bond type role.
You won’t be disappointed if you pluck down some dough for this film!
