Kingsman: The Secret Service ~ Movie Review



IMDb Blurb:
A spy organization recruits an unrefined, but promising street kid into the agency's ultra-competitive training program, just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius.

 Matthew Vaughn
 Jane Goldman (screenplay), Matthew Vaughn (screenplay), 2 more credits »
 Colin Firth, Taron Egerton, Samuel L. Jackson


First off, there were a lot of cliche' type jokes here. Samuel L Jackson appeared to be a knock off version of Flava-Flav (you know the rapper). It was something I felt wasn't well done. The main character's initiation into the Kingmen seemed nice, although they did appear to be a snobby group. I probably would have enjoyed it more by seeing the kids bond.

It did remind me of snippets of an Austin Powers movie, with the underlying jokes and sliver on unecessary sexual innuedos.

However, overall - I enjoyed it. I took my 18 year old daughter and 14 year old (wish I hadn't taken her - I had to cover her eyes/ears for a few scenes I was unprepared for).

It was a fun movie, action packed, enternaining, and had some surprises. I give it 3.5 umbrellas.

Absolutely a superb, entertaining movie to watch, with thrills, spills & chills! I have watched it at least half a dozen times, with friends or family that have not yet watched it previously, each time I pick up something that I had missed before! I have yet to hear a negative comment, from anyone that has watched the show with me, hands down.
