Kingsman: The Secret Service Summary
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.
Good show, lads.
If ever there was a semi-entertaining movie that sabotages itself with tastelessness and misogyny, this is it.
On Day One of filming, they must have thrown away the moral compass and taken a group vow to splatter our sensibilities with stylish, gratuitous violence and one "Wait, what?!" moment after another.
Any sense of triumph is purely at the level of stuntcraft. The rest feels less than the sum of the moving parts.
Camping it up, Jackson is hilarious.
