This film hit my inbox sometime last week and was ignored until today.
Watching the trailer made me think that it could be a great laugh to watch. Then it has Mrs Jonathan Ross, Jane Goldman, writing it so expect a lot of rude words, explosions and but-kicking!
It is a very British take on secret services. It does seem to also have nods towards other films of this genre. The Tailor’s shop can be a nod towards the Man From U.N.C.L.E. as well as the “toys” that appear can be a nod towards Bond [or every other Secret Service film ever made].
So with the guns, girls and Samuel L. Jackson in it. What more do you need to make it epic. The simple answer is Michael Caine.
Not only do we get the incredible trailer, we get to see what the poster looks like as well as a boring shot of Colin and Taron.
Based upon the acclaimed comic book and directed by Matthew Vaughn, 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.
