Kingsman

Saw Kingsman last night. What a fun film! The set up is that there is a secret service of gentleman undertaking various missions and they are looking for a new recruit. One of the people picked to go through the recruitment process is a troubled lad living with a dodgy step father figure.

Overall, the film plays like an early Bond film but with everything turned up to the max. The contrast of the kid from the wrong side of the tracks mixing with Oxbridge types could have been boring as it is such a familiar theme but the film manages to give it some vim.

Colin Firth really shines as a weird action figure and a sequence towards the end of the film is quite stunning.
