Kingsman: The Secret Service is an English movie released in 2014. I caught up with this movie in Escape @ Express Avenue mall. This is a spy action comedy movie, although the comedy is relatively sublime. This is one of the good entertaining movies I have seen in the recent times. Highly recommended! 🙂
There is a ‘private’ secret intelligence agency that seeks to save the world in areas where Govt. intelligence agencies have failed. The Hero’s father is a member of that elite agency and is killed in the beginning of the movie. His friend, and a fellow Kingsman, recruits the Hero once he grows up. I don’t see why that 15 year gap is required – no one seems to have aged during that period!
The first half of the movie is about how/whether the Hero passes the tough job interview. The second half of the movie is about how the Hero and the remaining members (2) of the Kingsman group save the world from the villain, who determines that humans are the virus of this world, and the best way to rid the world off this virus (and prevent global warming, etc.) is to kill all humans except an elite few – including himself.
The movie is very interesting from the start till the end. Although the action scenes are totally unrealistic, they are surely entertaining. The concept used to kill people en-masse is unique, and the surprises thrown throughout the movie work. It’s refreshing to listen to British accent: The English seem to have a knack of making excellent spy movies, alright!
All in all, this is an excellent movie – save all those violent scenes – to enjoy with your family. I am sure you’ll like it too, go ahead and see 🙂
