Based upon the acclaimed comic book and directed by Matthew Vaughn (Kick Ass, X-Men First Class), Kingsman: The Secret Service tells the story of a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into the agency's ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius.

I saw Kingsman with my husband and 13 year old daughter and we all loved it. Campy is the word that comes to mind. It is a nod at all the classic stereotypical spy (James Bond) characters, but with better special effects and talent (sorry Roger Moore). Everything was over the top, from the ridiculously cool super spy gadgets to the exploding heads...OMG, the exploding heads! 

Do you recognize the Jedi Knight?
The script is predictable but witty, and you will be entertained from beginning to end...well, if you enjoy action movies with some camp. Samuel L. Jackson's character is right out of a Bond film and the lisp is just an example of how the writers take things just to the edge of ridiculous, but wink and nod at the audience. The villain's side-kick, Gazzele (Sofia Boutella) with her blades of destruction was the icing on this cake of gratuitous violence.

Worth a matinee price and possibly full price if you are a fan of these type of movies.
WTF?! are these guys wearing? Jumpers...must be a British thing <G>
P.S. No dogs die in this movie...

4 "Manners maketh the sheep" Sheep

Pretty much Sharon hit this on the head. The movie is over the top with action and makes no apologies for it. You get a big taste of the 007 flare and some new added twists for the modern day man/woman. 

One or two well planned and placed twists, I did not see coming. If you're not familiar with the British "English", you may have a wee bit of trouble understanding the lingo here and there. But nothing you can't wing it and figure out what was said. 

A pretty awesome-gruesome fight scene in a church takes the blood and guts to an almost Braveheart level. If you're not into gore, you may want to cover your eyes for a few minutes. 

This is a fun film that had me entertained enough to not feel ripped of over the ticket price. I will complain about an unwanted or needed sexual line at the very end, but that's just my personal distaste.

    1. glad you stopped by too! Every time you do a lamb is born into this world :)

  2. I wasn't sure about this movie so thanks for the review.

  3. I was so hoping this movie was as fun as it seemed. I just in such a mood for campy movies these days. Too much drama makes me cranky it seems. Plus I love me some Colin Firth.

  4. I'll have to catch this on DVD or Amazon Prime

  5. A spy movie matched with outrageous humor sounds like a great Sunday afternoon escape. A fan of this genre, looking forward to checking it out. Thanks for the awesome review! Hugs...
