Trivia

Jane Goldman has said of Matthew Vaughn: "Matthew's got such a love for the James Bond movies, and 'Kingsman' is about embracing that genre, while also doing something new with it. Matthew's been talking about doing a spy movie for years, even back when we were working on Stardust (2007)." See more »

Crazy Credits

The opening credits are formed by pieces of rubble that fall off of an Arabian compound during the opening scene. The title of the movie itself is formed by snowflakes in a snow globe. See more »

Alternate Versions

The Czech version has the church scene removed and the princess anal sex scene edited. The famous scene with the princess at the end is intact, but zooms in to the blanket on the left in order to be more harmless, and thus her bare bottom is not shown. See more »

Hilarious! This could be the surprise hit of 2015
27 December 2014 | by Quint1965See all my reviews

Well folks, that's how it's done. Ever thought MI-6 (note: that's what the British call their secret service) is a club for snobbish, upper class dudes who like to watch paint dry all they long? OK, Bond is kind of cool (I hated the last two, though), but now we finally got a film that takes spy movies to the next level. Not since 'District 9' have I had that feeling during the watching of a film like "this movie just does everything right" (by which I mean of course: it plays exactly to MY taste).

Compared to this film, every James Bond movie released after 'Licence to Kill' looks like a snore-fest. This is such a kick-ass, "balls against the wall" crazy ride that I had to shake my head several times in disbelief during the screening I was invited to. And I actually knew what I was in for. I've seen every film by Matthew Vaughn, but I was not prepared how far he was willing to go with this one. Thought 'Kick-Ass' was pretty crazy? Wait till you see this.

One of the key ingredients is the casting of the actors. The well known stars all play against type, which makes this even more unreal. Remember that lame dude who mainly played lame dudes in girlie movies like 'Bridget Jones'? He just won an Oscar for playing the stuttering King of England, and as you will see in 'Kingsman', that Oscar was well deserved: that dude (Colin Firth) can play anything! He's more bad-ass in this than Bond ever was!

A word to the wise, though, this film is not for the easily offended or the squeamish. It is a comedy but a very, very violent kind of comedy. And the language alone will shock the MPAA out of their pants. Watch this if you're into films like 'Lock, Stock', 'Kick-Ass', or 'In Bruges' and you'll probably love it - don't bother if you're more into serious films or family friendly comedies. As for me, I had a (bloody) good time.
