Becky and I went to see the new movie Kingsman: The Secret Service this weekend at the AMC Theater in Castle Rock, CO last night with our sons Corban and Conroy. The Fandango website at Kingsman: The Secret Service describes the movie as follows…
“Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons‘ comic series is adapted for the big screen in this Matthew Vaughn-directed action thriller. The story centers on a secret agent who recruits a juvenile delinquent into a top-secret spy organization. Together, they battle a tech genius with diabolical ambitions. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi”
The Review: This film was a trip. It’s a bit like a James Bond 007 type film with comedy and a slasher movie all rolled into one move that is extremely graphic. It’s graphic like a graphic comic book where people get killed at random in strange ways with very off-the-wall characters. The main villain is played by Samuel L Jackson and he does a fantastic job being an evil genius billionaire with a lisp, who doesn’t like the sight of blood, which is why I said the movie has quite a bit of comedy included in the script. He has a plot to take over the world because of global warming and the way he wants to do it is something that is very clever, but is almost like a zombie apocalypse.
Be prepared for plenty of blood and insane mayhem and killing in this move, much more than even a Quentin Tarantino movie like Kill Bill, but it’s a bit like that movie in some respects because of the comic book aspect to it. It doesn’t feel like a comic book film, but the story feels like it’s right out of comic book genre. It is very well done with really great acting and a fantastic story, but it’s definitely rated R for the violence, sex and slasher type killings that you would see in a horror movie, so be prepared. We all liked it even though it’s pretty crazy and extremely violent. It’s a bit of a modern day 007 film presented in a completely different way. Most people who saw it liked it and thought it was worth the trip.
