‘Kingsman: The Secret Service’

2015-01-30-Kingsman_The_Secret_Service_Cover_embedComplete hokum but hugely entertaining.

A British Secret Service answer to the American superhero satire Kick Ass (same creative team in writer-director-producer Matthew Vaughan and writer Jane Goldman) with more than a passing reference to James Bond films. Only Mindy, the foul-mouthed 10 year-old (played by Chloe Grace Moretz), is replaced by the foul-mouthed cockney Chav, Egsy (relative newcomer Taron Egerton – Testament of Youth) who is moving in the plum-mouthed world of the British establishment.

Stupid but immense fun – the cast of seasoned British thesps (Colin Firth, Michael Caine, Mark Strong, Jack Davenport) and a lisping Samuel L Jackson appear to be having a ball.
