Storyline

A young man named Gary "Eggsy" Unwin (Taron Egerton), whose father died when he was a young boy, is dealing with living with the creep his mother is with now, who mistreats her and him. He goes out and does something to one of the creep's friends. He gets arrested and he calls the number a man gave him around the time his father died, to call if he needs help. A man named Harry Hart (Colin Firth) approaches him and tells him he's the one who helped him. He tells him that he knew his father. When the man Eggsy slighted wants some payback, Harry takes care of him and his companions single-handedly. Harry then tells Eggsy that he's part of a secret organization called "The Kingsman", and his father was also part of it. He died trying to make the world safe. Harry offers Eggsy the opportunity to be a Kingsman, and he takes it. He undergoes a gruelling training course. Harry is looking into the demise of another Kingsman, and the trail leads him to tech billionaire Valentine, a.k.a. "V" (... Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Trivia

According to Matthew Vaughn, he decided to work on this movie because he felt it was an opportunity too good to be passed up, and would rather not see it filmed by someone else. While working on a treatment for X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014), he saw a work-in-progress version of the comic on which Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons were working. He told the studio that he wanted to do this movie, and then asked Bryan Singer, who produced X-Men: First Class (2011), whether they could swap duties. All parties consented to his idea, on condition that Twentieth Century Fox would distribute and finance this movie. See more »

Goofs

SPOILER: It took the carrying capacity of two balloons to get Lancelot at that altitude to destroy the satellite. When the first balloon popped, she would have plunged immediately several ten thousand feet.

The net force would be down towards the ground immediately; however, you only fall at 9.81 m/s in the near vacuum of "near space" and Lancelot only fell for about 37 seconds in movie time thus only 6,712 movie meters (22,021 movie feet) GRADUALLY over that time which in "real life time" was probably shorter.

Daring Fun with the potential of becoming Iconic
10 January 2015 | by PadmeAgnesSee all my reviews

#Kingsman: The Secret Service is a gentlemen secret spy-society that saves the world from a villain with the help of new recruits ... Don't let this summary fool you, the movie fantastic! It got applause at the end of the preview; for me first time ever in a cinema.

Great lines, never laughed this much: Bond with a wink and fresh edge. Plus super shot "martial art" action that should make the Matrix jealous. The action has its true Shakespearian/GoTh moments and all supported by cool tech-stuff. Great aspect in this movie is the music, an extra comic dimension. When you see the movie you'll know what I mean. Next too all the clever fun and furious action, it touches on petty crime poverty and home violence. Matthew Vaugh captures the grimness yet doesn't loose it's lightness ... and I like the message: "a gentlemen is not born, a gentle(wo)men is someone who chooses to be one."

The young gang, like Sophie Cookson, held up well and Taron Egerton established his position in the gang of giants. Colin Firth's aloofness was crowned with a kick-ass bite, Samuel Jackson brings his role back to old fashion comedy, strongly supported by Mark Strong and Michael Caine. It is a big 9,5 - this movie just nailed it.
