Well this is the first new film (well at least for the UK) I have seen in over a month, I've had cinema withdrawal for that time so now I finally got to see a new film. I also might be seeing Run All Night tomorrow. The film that I saw was Kingsman, which revolves around an ex-marine trainee who gets chosen by a friend of his fathers to join a group of spies to defend the world against threats; when a major threat starts to surface with millions of lives on the line the spies must join together to stop it at all costs. Kingsman is directed by Matthew Vaughn and stars Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson, Sofia Boutella, Sophie Cookson and Michael Caine.
There are a lot of positives to this film: great action, good humour, good plot, great plot progression, it is self-referential and has great acting. To expand, the action in this film is phenomenal it's really cool to see British spies kicking arse in an R rated environment so it gets to be a bit more brutal. The plot to this film is quite good but nothing astounding as it is quite cliché but the film is built on the characters and the world it creates and both of those are executed perfectly; another reason why the plot being a bit cliché doesn't bother me in this film is because it has quite a few jokes that break the fourth wall talking about spy films and certain tropes in them, all of these jokes are really funny and the film as a whole is really fun to watch. The acting in this film is also excellent especially from the main stars (Taron Egerton, Colin Firth and Samuel L. Jackson), all of the actors capture their characters brilliantly and make the film thoroughly enjoyable.
There really aren't many negatives, the only things that I can think of is that the CGI is very noticeable in certain scenes and slightly off-putting; also the plot gets quite silly in moments but that does fit the tone and humour in the film so it's not really a negative.
Overall I really liked this film; this is going to be a film that when it comes on DVD I will buy it and watch it all the time, it is a really fun experience to just turn your brain off and enjoy it. So taking everything I have said into consideration I rate this film:
