Bill C’s Review – 3.5 out of 5
Kingsman: The Secret Service is a joyful spoof of Bond genre films and is directed by Matthew Vaughn. Vaughn successfully spoofed superhero movies a few years ago with Kick Ass.
The film is very entertaining with good action and lots of laughs. Like Kick Ass or Kill Bill, there is a ton of violence which may offend some. The plot isn’t the most exciting, but fits right in with Bond spoofs. Samuel L. Jackson is the megalomaniac villain (who can’t stomach watching violence). Colin Firth does a good job as the Bond-type spy and Taron Egerton is very likable as the young spy trainee. There are no real ‘Bond’ girls, but dancer Sofia Boutella is great as the villain’s deadly hench-person
If you like Bond spoofs, Kick Ass or Kill Bill, check this movie out.
