A film by Matthew Vaughn

Cast: Colin Firth, Taron Egerton, Samuel L. Jackson

In 1997, a man is killed while protecting his comrades. it is soon revealed that man was working for a secret organization call the Kingsman. An agent named Harry Hart (Colin Firth) takes it upon himself to visit the man’s family and leaves a bravery medal with the man’s young son, Eggsy. he tells him if you ever need help to call that number on the back. 17 years later Eggsy gets in trouble with the local thugs and steals his car. Eggsy who is at the police station calls the number which lead to Harry Hart to show up takes him as his protégé and introduce him to be a Kingsman.

It is from the comic book that this film pop up and what better to have Matthew Vaughn to direct this film after all he has done a great job with kick Ass. when I saw the trailer I was not really going to see this film but a lot of people loved it so I wanted to see for myself and I was not disappointed. Of course a kingsman should wear a suit when he goes to battle. Another Great performance by Sam Jackson who plays the villain Richmond Valentine who has a lisp to top it all off can’t stand violence and the sight of blood. Dude what kind of villain is that. The films hilarious at times plus the fighting scenes the one in the church is outstanding especially to see Colin Firth bent his body in his fifties like that is amazing. In an interview he said that was the most difficult thing to do especially at my age, I didn’t know it could be done. It was spectacular to see that scene, it takes a lot of practice to pull that off. A film debut of Welsh actor Taron Egerton and he handles the role brilliantly. Firth has the definition of a gentleman who is an experience spy and plays it well, it feels just right. Great action scene violent at that but fun to watch. Matthew Vaughn redefine the spy movie a little bit a la James bond/ a la Quentin Tarantino.
