Kingsman: The Secret Service is about a young man from a low income family, Eggsy (Taron Egerton), who has great potential physically and mentally, but has also fallen into a life of crime. After he is arrested and seemingly doomed, a professionally dressed man claiming to be a tailor, Harry Hart (Colin Firth), pays his bail. But what Eggsy doesn’t know is that Harry is actually a professional spy that belongs to Kingsman, an elite British Intelligence network that is focused on stopping the plans of a deranged tech billionaire. As one of the member dies, Hart puts forth Eggsy as a candidate to fill the gap. At the same time, an internet billionaire, Richmond Valentine (Samuel L. Jackson), has launched a secret plan which involves a killing spree across the world. Many people have also pointed out the similarities between Kingsman and the James Bond movies, but Kingsman is very unique from Bond. The style and personality between Kingsman and JB is different, and Kingsman is unsurprisingly rated R, with way more gore and violence and 84 uses of the word f*ck. I realized that there wasn’t much action in the first half of the film, other than the two times it does (but I don’t want to spoil that). Now, time for spoilers.
***SPOILER ALERT: THE FOLLOWING CONTAINS SPOILERS***
One funny mistake I found was a spelling mistake, in which the Sky News headline on TV spelled “Wordlwide” instead of “Worldwide”. The movie also had many twists and turns, too much to the point where you start to think its to much. But you will soon quickly forget that as an awesome fight which a lot of violence and bloody gore. At the end of the movie comes another fight between Eggsy and Roxy vs. the women with bad-ass prosthetic legs and Valentine that topped the movie off.
Here is my rating system. After reviewing every movie, I will rate the movie out of 5★ and out of 100 to let you know what I think of the movie.
5★(95-100): It’s an absolutely great movie that I would recommend to everyone, and definitely one worth watching.
4★(80-94): It’s a good movie that I would still recommend, but it’s just not exactly at the very top.
3★(70-79): It’s a movie that’s better than average, but still has its ups and downs.
2★(51-69): This movie is definitely under average. This movie is hard to enjoy and the director of this movie probably wasn’t even trying to make a good movie.
1★(50 and below): This movie is just complete utter bullshit, so much so that it makes me angry that I even watched it. The director of this movie was just drunk. This is the type of movie that will make you question your ability to pick a good movie. Instead of buying these types of movies, just donate your money to charity and you will be better off anyway.
My rating for Kingsman: The Secret Service is 4★ and 83.
Overall, Kingsman: The Secret Service was an enjoyable movie, though not something you’d watch more than once. Still, I would definitely recommend this movie to those who love insanely bloody yet awesome fight scenes.
