Kingsman The Secret Service (2015) is the film adaptation of the Mark Millar Comic of the same name. The story is about Eggsy (played by Taron Egerton), an intelligent but troubled youth who used to be a soldier, but left to take care of his mother. Eggsy is recruited by Harry Hart aka Galahad (played by Colin Firth), a recruiter for Kingsman, a secret service agency that takes down threats while remaining undercover. Eggsy is then put into the Kingsman’s training program where he meets Roxy (played by Sophie Cookson), a fellow recruit. Along the way, Eggsy becomes part of Galahad’s assignment to take out Valentine (played by Samuel L. Jackson), a tech genius who plans on stopping global warming by eliminating most of the world’s population. He plans on doing this by using his new free sim cards that turns people violent. While the world is tearing itself apart, Valentine and some of his rich followers stay safe in his bunker. So it’s up to the Kingsman to stop Valentine and save the world.

Kingsman The Secret Service (2015) is an action packed spy thriller that has more style and flare than any other spy film out there. The action is off the wall and fast paced. The characters are classy and fun to watch. The comedy is greatly amusing especially with its multiple James Bond references. The weakness of the film is that some of the side characters are bland or just cliche. Kingsman The Secret Service gets 9.5/10 stars.
