I have done a horrible job covering this film, but KINGSMEN: THE SECRET SERVICE is coming out February 13 and it is one of my top 5 movies of this year. Will it deliver? I can’t say at all but when I saw the first trailer in theaters, it got my hyped.
KINGSMEN is a comic book film, which you can find the re-release this week from Marvel, which is based on The Secret Service by Mark Millar. It stars Colin Firth, Michael Caine, Mark Strong, Mark Hamill, and Samuel L. Jackson. Alrighty then, if that isn’t enough to build some sort of desire, you can know its directed by Matthew Vaughn, of X-Men: First Class and Kick-Ass.
Now that we know it has solid cast and crew behind it, I’ll add that it is Rated R and we should expect a good time. My feel for this movie is that Kingsmen is like Wanted, but mixed with James Bond and totally brutal about it.
First up, I’ll give you the clip that hooked me, followed by the trailer. You can expect a review of this next month as I’ll be all on board to see this movie. Its hard to make Colin Firth look like a bad ass, so job well done!
