Kingsman: The Secret Service

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ based on 2 reviews.

tl;dr: A brilliantly paced, excellently acted, and seriously funny film. In other words: excellent.




Spoilers Ahead: My reviews are not spoiler-free. You have been warned.

I remember being blown away by Kingsman in the cinema when I first saw it. It was just such a surprisingly different action film, and of course the combination of Taron Egerton and Samuel L. Jackson was incredible.

On rewatch, it's still a huge amount of fun, still a fantastic performance from Taron Egerton, all the more impressive given who he's cast alongside, and still a brilliant movie. The weird explosive ending actually got better with a second viewing, probably because I was expecting it, and genuinely felt in-keeping with the rest of the film. Samuel L. Jackson throwing up still feels gratuitous and a bit weird. The moment Eggsy's mum is going all Shining on her bathroom door is still nerve-wracking and tense. The soundtrack still rocks. Yeah, definitely a firm favourite we'll be revisiting many times in the future!


A film that doesn't seem to get old at all. The weird ending is still a bit weird, but I'm largely used to it by now; ditto the strangely perverted sense of humour with the Princess and final shot. As for the rest of the movie, damn the choreography in the church fight is exceptional. I can't believe I haven't mentioned it before. A+
