Stylish, brutal and hilarious. ‘Kingsman’ is an extremely quintessentially British flick full of over-the-top yet hilarious comedy, brutal violence and a quirky image of England. Since James Bond’s debut in 1962, a number of films have attempted to reinvent the genre, however, none have come close to displaying the perfect blend like ‘Kingsman’ has. Matthew Vaughn has become renowned for taking on action-comedy projects. And along the way has kept that feel-good British aspect to it that makes our greatest secret agent (James Bond) such an icon. All-in-all ‘Kingsman’ is a brilliant, well-executed film.
