Initially sold to me as “Bond with jokes”, it’s so much more than that.
When his dad dies, Eggsy (Taron Egerton) is visited by Harry (Colin Firth). Harry’s a Kingsman, part of a secret service and Eggsy might be just the recruit he’s looking for.
From dream-team Matthew Vaughn and Jane Goldman (Kick-Ass, Stardust), it’s much better than your average spy movie. The plot may be a tad predictable, but it’s full of genuine belly laughs and superb characters. Co-starring Samuel L Jackson, Mark Strong and Michael Caine, it’s a brilliant adaptation of Mark Miller and Dave Gibbons’ comic book.
