Kingsman was one of the most enjoyable films I've seen in a long while. It was a brilliant action comedy with a great cast that wonderfully parodied the spy genre while adding something new to the genre.
Colin Firth stole the show as the delightfully British secret agent Harry Hart aka Galahad. His performance was charming, witty, and everything you'd expect from an English spy. Mark Strong played against type, providing an equally charming and funny performance as Merlin. Finally, the relatively unknown Taron Egerton definitely held his own with some big names, leading the film with gusto.
I was highly impressed with this film and I look forward to a potential franchise. It's a quirky, exciting action romp with a funny side. You won't be disappointed.
Kingsman: The Secret Service was a rousing good time that completely subverts the trope of spy movies of the past. The action was bloody, the pace was tight, and the movie was also quite funny. Fans of the spy genre will find a lot to love with this movie.
The cast was superb in their roles. Colin Firth, Mark Strong, and Samuel L. Jackson were all a lot of fun to watch, clearly having tons of fun. Taron Egerton was great in the lead role, bringing a lot of charisma and charm. I hope to see more of him in the future. The fight choreography is some of the most impressive I've seen, with some really impressive camera movement. The fight choreography really culminates in a scene that takes place in a church, creating one of the most memorable scenes in film.
If you're looking for a good time at the movies, then this movie to see. It has some insane action scenes, hilarious moments, and a sense of fun throughout. I loved this movie and can't wait for a potential sequel.
