The suits in this movie are awesome

 

Plot
So basically the fate of the human kind rest on the shoulder of young delinquent boy who later becomes a spy agent. It all begun with a young agent saving the life Galahad a.k.a Harry Hart(Colin Firth). The young agent was the father of Gary ‘Eggsy’ Unwin. Galahad feeling grateful to the young agent, he decides to take Eggsy as his apprentice.
Eggsy’s journey to become an agent wasn’t that easy as the other apprentice of the other agent were also competing to be the next Lancelot. Mean while Valentine (Samuel L.Jackson) continues his plan exterminate ‘some’ human being. His plan however was discover by the Kingsman and Galahad was right behind his tale. Just when Galahad got to close, we was betrayed and Eggsy decides to up the suit to safe humanity.

Aren’t you too young to drink?

BoView
Well it’s not a James Bond movie if that’s what you it is. It’s more of a college version of James Bond. The background of Eggsy is very fragile and easily dissolved. He is suppose to be this high IQ, very agile and has a basic military training. But however it seems he is lack in all. He can’t tell the different between a bulldog and pug, he can’t seemed to and lack of discipline.
Colin Firth’s British accent really creeps on you and reminds us alot of The King’s Speech. Samuel L.Jackson was the absolute disappointment truth to be told. His character was very direct which was such waste his talent. His character was lack of the villain filling.
No doubt about it, they had done their research on the spy movie but however it lack a good storyline.
They had good actors but however the plot was a little let down.

Only missing is the Micheal Buble soundtrack on the background

Rating 6.0/10
Coming from Mattew Vaughn, it’s a little disappointing. The movie structure was well planned but the execution didn’t follow thru.
Despite the good actors and director, its still far off from a Bond movie. It’s like you have a Ferrari car but Alex Young is driving it.

Release date: 19th February 2015

Kingsman: The Secret Service – Contest(ENDED)

Based upon the acclaimed comic book and directed by Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass, X-Men First Class), 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.

When the father of five-year-old Gary “Eggsy” Unwin sacrifices his life in the line of duty during a classified military exercise, his family is given an unconventional medal – and a phone number they may use only once, should they need a favor of any kind.

Seventeen years later, Eggsy (TARON EGERTON) is an unemployed school dropout living a dead-end existence in his mother’s flat. After he is arrested for joyriding, Eggsy uses the medal to secure his release from jail, and finds himself rescued by Harry Hart (COLIN FIRTH), an impeccably suave spy who owes Eggsy’s father his life.

Dismayed to learn of the path Eggsy has taken, yet impressed by his better qualities, Harry offers Eggsy the opportunity to turn his life around by trying out for a position with Harry’s employers: Kingsman, a top-secret independent intelligence organization.

Eggsy must make it through the highly competitive and often perilous series of tests that each prospective new Kingsman agent must pass, while also dealing with the emotional struggle of being a social outcast in an environment where everyone else is well-educated, well-connected and well-mannered.

Meanwhile, Harry is trying to solve the mysterious disappearances of several prominent academics, scientists and entertainers, and hunt down the man he believes to be responsible – Richmond Valentine (SAMUEL L JACKSON), a tech billionaire and disillusioned eco-campaigner whose desire to save the earth at any cost has led him to devise a scheme that will have devastating consequences for everyone.

With Harry’s help, Eggsy learns to become both a gentleman and a spy – but will he triumph over his rivals for the coveted position at Kingsman?

And can he and Harry discover the truth about Valentine’s ingeniously evil plan in time to stop it?
