When their headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage, the Kingsman's journey leads them to the discovery of an allied spy organization in the United States. These two elite secret organizations must band together to defeat a common enemy.
A humble businessman with a buried past seeks justice when his daughter is killed in an act of terrorism. A cat-and-mouse conflict ensues with a government official, whose past may hold clues to the killers' identities.
With his reputation in tatters after a painfully unsuccessful delivery of a distinguished Japanese client, former triple-A executive protection agent, Michael Bryce, two long years after the disgraceful incident, is now reduced to a mere second-class bodyguard for hire. Under those circumstances, Bryce would do anything to prove his worth once again, and as a result, it won't be long before he accepts an offer from Interpol to escort the renowned international assassin Darius Kincaid from Manchester to the Hague. The task seems simple: Bryce only needs to transport the contract killer from point A to point B, nevertheless, Kincaid, as the only one with the guts and enough hard evidence to testify against a tyrannical Belarusian dictator, is an obvious target, while the trip to the Netherlands is long and hazardous. Without a doubt, this is a race against the clock as the mismatched duo will have to put aside their grudges, in a non-stop concerto for bullets.Written by
The men's wristwatch shown in detail at the beginning of the movie (while Michael Bryce (Ryan Reynolds) is getting dressed) is a Patek Philippe Sky Moon Tourbillon 5002P which has a 2017 street price of 1.2 million dollars. See more »
The Jaguar at the beginning of the movie is OU16 LVA. The 16 on UK number plates means the car was registered between March 2016 and end of August 2016. Shortly after, the movie moves to two years later which at the time of writing is the future assuming the film is set in present day.
If no other dates are referenced, there is no reason why the film must be set on the day it is made, or released ; but if the 16 is valid, then the later scenes would have some UK number plates with 18, 68 etc. See more »
Man on Phone:
Good morning, Mr. Bryce. I trust the pickup ran smoothly.
Hand-off was clean. No stops till the exit point.

At the end of the credits there's an outtake with Ryan Reynolds having to wait for church bells to stop ringing. See more »
Why all the bad reviews? Just sit back and enjoy this action/comedy!
I read some reviews that trashed this movie and I'm wondering if these are the same people that thought that Birdman (worst movie ever) was the best a couple of years ago. OK...I get it and I understand why people are hating on this movie. The movie is violent, predictable and has a script that is full of foul mouth language. But the beauty of the movie experience is that when you walk into a theater, turn off your brain and enjoy this movie for what it is. I laughed out loud and enjoyed this from beginning to end. Yes it is full of unrealistic stunts, bullet dodging and perfect aim by the "good guys" but that is what makes it enjoyable. Of course it is it is full of "F" words but that is what makes this movie fun.
Samuel L, Ryan Reynolds and Selma Hayek (who played a surprising role) are fun to watch. Trust me don't go in thinking that this is some type of Jason Bourne or Jack Ryan spin off because it's not. Just sit back and watch it with the intent on being entertained by this funny action/comedy. There are some references to some old movies so you have to be keen and recognize them.
