Direc­tor Matthew Vaughn (Layer Cake, pro­ducer of Lock, Stock and Two Smok­ing Bar­rels and Snatch) takes the reins for this big-bud­get Bri­tish spy-ac­tion flick. Colin Firth (pic­tured) plays Harry Hart, a vet­eran se­cret agent tasked with show­ing young re­cruit Gary “Eg­gsy” Un­win (Taron Eger­ton) the ropes. But it wouldn’ t be an ac­tion flick with­out a bad guy – en­ter Sa­muel L. Jack­son as a twisted evil ge­nius in­tent on wreak­ing havoc. Michael Caine,

Mark Strong and Luke Sky­walker him­self Mark Hamill also make an ap­pear­ance in this wor­thy adap­ta­tion of the comic book from Dave Gib­bons and Mark

Mil­lar. ★★★★
