Lots of covert adolescent agent films have made it into the big screen, but not all of them managed to impress its viewers. However, things are different for Matthew Vaughn’s “Kingsman: The Secret Service” as it seems to have shed a new light in the adolescent secret agent cinematic facet. Read on for the details of our movie review.
“Kingsman: The Secret Service” Synopsis:
The movie follows after a British super secret spy organization that establishes contact with an unruly street adolescent to join their team. In the person of Harry Hart (Colin Firth), the gentleman bailed teenager Gary “Egsy” Unwin (Taron Egerton) out of jail in order to let him in on the organization. After a series of impressive stints and stunts for introduction and orientation, Egsy joins the boot camp to legitimately become a Kingsman spy and undergoes all kinds of hardships leading him to question his application towards it. However, in the midst of all the overly competitive technicalities he’s had to go through to complete his training, a global threat arises with Valentine (Samuel L. Jackson), threatening the safety of mankind, which causes the Kingsman Spy Organization to fight to save the people of the world.
“Kingsman: The Secret Service” Review:
No, a movie does not easily get a 100 percent review output in Rotten Tomatoes, but it turns out Matthew Vaugn’s latest spy flick, “Kingsman: The Secret Service,” managed to do so in its current standpoint as labeled by top critics.
Over the years, countless young adult films did their best to serve a younger kind of 007 into the big screen, but so far, none of them managed to impress, only depress. However, things are now about to change, especially with “Kick–Ass” helmer Matthew Vaughn as he brings in the right elements that will give you a possible throwback as to how a person like James Bond started. Comic Book Movie accumulated the initial reviews of the films, and so far, they are nothing but impressed with Vaughn’s latest film.
According to one of Variety’s top critic, Peter Debruge, the movie works as a whole and its action scenes are definitely adjacent to the comedic ones. In his review he wrote: “Whether it’s ‘Alex Rider,’ ‘Agent Cody Banks’ or ‘Spy Kids,’ plenty have tried to adapt the 007 shtick to younger characters, with demonstrably dopey results. In the end, the reason it works for Vaughn is that he’s making the film for adults.”
Another critic from Empire, Chris Hewitt, lunged that the movie is radiantly risky but very much suave. In his review, he added that the film got its “ingenious gadgets, suave heroes with the ability to identify a rare brand of Scotch from smell alone, megalomaniacal villains and deadly henchwomen with blades where their legs used to be. It’s filthy, funny and very violent – and frankly it’s the most fun 007 has been in years.”
Director and comic book creator Vaughn certainly reminded everybody that directing your own story is a definite success when it comes to the actualization of one’s creative visions.
