Kingsman: The Secret Service Review - IGN

IGN: In Kingsman: The Secret Service, director Matthew Vaughn once again proves that he excels in taking well-established -- one might even say tired -- genres and tropes and reenergizing them with his patented blend of wit, reverence for what has come before, and hyper-violence.
Adapted from the comic series by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons, Kingsman is a paean to the super-spy movie, but with a specific eye towards modernizing the gadget-crazed, Very British variation on the kind. Yes, bulletproof umbrellas and watches that shoot amnesia darts are back in vogue thanks to Vaughn and co-scripter Jane Goldman, and you’ll love them for it. Of course, who can be surprised that the director -- the guy who sent the X-Men to the Mod 1960s in First Class -- would fixate on the stylings of the James Bond archetype? In Kingsman, it’s the suit that makes the agent as much as anything else.

The story is too old to be commented.
