Movie Review: Kingsman

Kingsman

Watching Kingsman was like watching a cartoon. And, I guess, it’s not surprising. The story is based on a comic book.

Kingsman: The Secret Service tells the story of a super-secret spy organization that recruits a street kid (Taron Egerton) through one of its agents (Colin Firth).

A tech tycoon (Samuel L. Jackson) creates a global threat, and the street kid, with his innocence and gusto, saves the world.

The movie got a surprising 75% rating on the Tomatometer. That just goes to show you that movies are now made for slapstick humor, lots of bang-bang-bang and you don’t really need to think.

It’s only been a few days since I watched Kingsman, and I have basically forgotten about it already.

Please don’t bother going.

Rating - One Star

  1. Thanks for the heads up. I’m getting so tired of the usual movie fare these days. If you get a chance (and you have Netflix) check out The Road Within. Very thought provoking and moving movie about three friends who escape their treatment facility. One has Tourette’s, one has OCD and germophobia, and the female lead has anorexia. Parts are sad. Parts are inspiring. And parts are really quite funny. Much better than smas-em-up, shoot-em-up, spy-hard, CGI-laced “blockbusters.” No dumbing down with one.
