A spy organization recruits an unrefined, but promising street kid into the agency’s ultra-competitive training program, just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                                    

 

 

 

                 

 

Okay so I’d like to note that this movie is rated R because there’s a giant misconception that this was/is supposed to be a children’s movie.

The sad thing is when you watch the movie it is actually treated like a kids movie. From the action sequences, to the villains, through the whole thing its not taken seriously as an actual adult action film.

There is potential for it to be really great and you can see it in the cast, in the actual fights but then you get things that seem to be made a joke of. Its really sad because this movie could have been so much more if they had actually used the potential it had to be really great.

If there wasn’t killing, sexual innuendo, and a few curse words here and there it would have been rated G/PG based on the rest of the content.

I was insanely disappointed with how Samuel Jackson portrayed his character, and I was also bothered by the fact that Kingsman is supposed to be a serious film with serious acting but you get scenes and emotions from the cast that just don’t fit the mood.

Kingsman could have been really great so I’m bummed that I was so disappointed with how it turned out. Still I think its worth a watch anyway because there is that potential I still see in the cast. As for any of the rumored following prequels and or sequels I really hope they do a better job giving this series the effort it deserves to get it right.
