KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE (2014) – My rating: 8/10

KingsmanTheSecretServiceKingsman is a culmination of many spy epics, like James Bond and Casino Royal.  I really enjoyed this delightful, breath of fresh air, change of pace film, derived from a comic book series.  Great cast and pretty good, albeit, ridiculous plot.  Kingsman appeared to be a serious spy (what’s going to happen next) type of movie and it was, except it got a little silly towards the end — but good silly.  Right from the beginning, we are presented with the fantastic skills of the Kingsman as we watch Lancelot (Jack Davenport) kick ass rescuing a kidnapped climate expert, Professor Arnold (Mark Hamill) from his captors.  Samuel L. Jackson’s character, Valentine, is filthy rich and has a most fascinating partner named Gazelle (Sofia Boutella) who has no legs but wears blades instead.  Valentine is a tech genius and is obsessed about the planet’s global warming, climate control and such.  The Kingsman is an organization that recruits potentially great spies off the streets of Britain to service the country against terror and crime.  Harry Hart/Galahad (Colin Firth), Authur (Michael Caine) and Merlin (Mark Strong) are some of the Kingsman who are part of the recruiting process.  The special effects were great, as were the gadgets presented throughout the movie.  It isn’t an easy task trying to figure who is good and who is bad in this movie but not knowing made it all the more interesting.  Taron Egerton played the star recruit, Gary (Eggsy) Unwin who not only had potential as a Kingsman but his father was a former Kingsman who was killed in the line of duty.  Eggsy’s mom, Michelle Unwin (Samantha Womack), who has no self esteem, provided something to look forward to with regards to resolving her man problem.  I really think you’ll enjoy Kingsman: The Secret Service.  It’s truly a fun change of pace.  Kingsman: The Secret Service was the highest rated movie by critics and fans of all the current movies out this week.
