When the skydivers are shown jumping out of the aircraft, a Shorts model 330, an altimeter is visible on the jumpers arms show that the group is jumping out at well above 30,000 feet. This is much higher than the Shorts 330 service ceiling altitude of only 27,000 feet. However, Kingsman vehicles are not the standard model but rather upgraded versions with enhanced capabilities.

Who said the traditional Bond formula is dead?!!
26 January 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was lucky enough to go to an advanced screening of Kingsman: The Secret Service. Watching the trailer a month ago made me interested to watch this movie since I'm a fan of spy movies especially the 007 movies. The movie is about a young teenager from London called "Eggsy" who is chosen by a professional agent from a super secret organisation who call themselves the "Kingsmen" to go through the deadliest "job interview" to be the next Kingsman spy.

That said I must say I was not disappointed. The action is fast-paced and there's a lot of comedy.The movie is sort of like 007 meets Men in Black. The movie obviously parodies the old traditional 007 formula especially of the Roger Moore era but this is done in a good way. Kingsman; The Secret Service reminded me how great the old 007 formula was until it was changed until Daniel Craig's portrayal of the agent. After watching this movie Daniel Craig better take notes because there is a new agent on the block and that is "Eggsy'.

That being said Kingsman: The Secret Service is the best movie of 2015 so far. Don't miss it!!!
