The agent Harry “Galahad” Hart from the Kingsman Secret Service helps the troublemaker Gary “Eggsy” Unwin, who is the son of an agent that saved the lives of Harry and his team sacrificing himself seventeen years ago. Harry invites Eggsy to be candidate to the vacancy of a new agent in the agency and he is trained by Agent Merlin and competes with other candidates. Meanwhile, the Kingsmen investigate the industrialist Valentine, an insane genius of technology who is plotting a deadly plan with his assistant Gazelle to save Earth from global warming eliminating most of the population with a chip and saving only those that he has chosen.
What a fun movie this turned out to be. I wasn’t all that interested in watching it before but thanks to a recommendation from my friend Ames, I jumped right in and loved every minute of this movie. There were some parts that I could have done without but for the most part, this was an enjoyable movie that had me laughing one minute and gasping from the action the next.
Galahad has to find a new candidate for the Kingsman Secret Service and his choice is Gary “Eggsy” Unwin, the son of an agent that saved Galahad’s life. Eggsy is a bit of a troublemaker that can’t catch a break. He’s got a mother that is dating a really bad dude and he worries about her and his younger sister. So when he lands himself into some trouble, Galahad shows up to save the day and life as Eggsy knew it changes.
There’s a lot going on in this movie. There’s Eggsy’s training and then there’s the main plot surrounding Valentine’s big evil plan to take over the world and all of that filled this movie up with loads of action and awesome dialogue. I really enjoyed this movie and am kicking myself that it took me so long to finally watch this. Big kudos to Colin Firth, Taron Egerton and Samuel L. Jackson because I was invested in this movie from beginning to end. I loved that this movie was fast-paced, funny and I connected with all of the characters…especially Eggsy. What a cutie patootie he is.
This movie was a good way to spend a couple of hours and I’m really looking forward to watching the next one. Luke says that it’s not as good as this one and I believe him because this movie is pretty hard to top.
