Kingsman The Secret Service

The King’s Man Week: Kingsman The Secret Service (2014) – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Wow.  In a year where I’ve been let down by SO many films, Kingsman has managed to restore my faith in action films and big screen arse kickers alike.  So kinetic, so fun, so funny yet with a heart and soul… Matthew Vaughn has truly shown that he is one of the best directors working in movie today.  But all of this would be worth little if not for two strong central performances form both Firth and Egerton.  I loved this film and as it stands today it’s top 5 for 2015.

Best Bit: Church. Colin Firth. Fight.

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Buy

If You Liked this Try: Snatch, X-Men First Class, Stardust

 

8 out of 10 stars
