Absolutely the worst movie.
I cannot think of one single thing that I would change about this film. The acting is incomparable, the directing deft, and the writing poignantly brilliant.
Ok... Let's be honest. It cannot be the best movie but is quite enjoyable. The movie has the potential to develop a great plot for future movies
There are moments in this movie where the great movie it could've been peek out... They're fleeting, here, but they're worth savoring, and they happen often enough to make it worth your while.
I'm surprised that this film was trying to be a fun & cheeky brit comedy considering the level of intentionally visceral bloodbath violence that's bombastically spread throughout the film's seemingly never ending runtime. How can anyone consider a film to be a comedy when there's terrorism-style bloodshed in every other scene? Do people find this entertaining? I find it confusing and intellectually dishonest. The headache I had after watching this horrorshow required more than a few Aleve.
I saw this film last night thinking that it could be a little serious. I am disappointed having wasted my time with a shabby parody of James Bond films. Of course a parody is well come, when it is a real one, with humor and not a bunch of rubbish, like this. What a pity for actors like Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson and Michael Caine to be let in such a nonsense.My vote 3/10
'Kingsman: The Secret Service' may have a clichéd and unoriginal plot, but it is excused to it's stylish and entertaining approach and talented cast. This film may have paid homage to spy films such as the well-known-and-loved Bond series, but it's too smart to be considered a parody, but also too silly and ridiculously clichéd to be considered a serious film. However, this ultimately is excused by the fact that this movie is just so cool! With extremely stylish action sequences, memorable characters portrayed by great actors and hilarious humor, this film is a highly enjoyable watch that will leave its audience in awe. The action in this film is so over-the-top and stylised that it results in being some of the best action sequences I've seen in film for a long time. But the reason this movie is so great is all due to it's cast - Taron Egerton is fantastic as the lead role of Eggsy, but we all know that it was Colin Firth who stole the show. He effortless nails his role, and is essentially the main reason this film is as great as it is. Overall this movie is one of the most entertaining and rewatchable films of 2014 due to its highly talented cast and stylistic approach.
I love this movie a lot. It's honestly the most underrated movie of all time for me. Quite a few people don't like it because it's extremely violent but it has an R rating for a reason. Vaughn's style of action scenes work so well for this movie. They're chaotic, have unique camera angles and movements that focus on what's most important in a scene and they don't just use the whole one punch changes to a different shot that Hollywood loves so much which makes it very refreshing. It's a very, well, "British movie" with British humour and slang that I'm surprised most Americans can understand. The soundtrack is incredible as well, Manners Maketh Man might be my favourite track. The movie can get a little silly at times but it's a comic book movie so I can't really nag it for that. The movie clearly isn't meant to be taken seriously and I like that. It's refreshing to have a movie for once that is made to be fun and not just action with dark settings and occasional humour. Highly recommend this. Too bad the sequel is an absolute mess.
