Kingsman hits Proserpine
SET to hit the Proserpine Entertainment Centre tonight, Kingsman: The Secret Service is a fearless, bold, unbelievably funny and extraordinarily entertaining film.
Kingsman tells the story of the wellmannered British spy, Harry Hart (Colin Firth) and his decision to take the rebellious young teenager, “Eggsy” (Taron Egerton) under his wing.
As a brilliant counter to Hart and Eggsy’s atypical British spy characters stands the film’s villain – Valentine (Samuel L. Jackson). Jackson delivers one of the most entertaining and enjoyable performances of his career as he inhabits the character of Valentine, who eschews the typical traits of a Bond-type villain in every conceivable way.
Valentine has a traditionally elaborate and insane evil plot that threatens the world, but he has done away with the evil minions, menacing voice and the threatening demeanour.
Instead, Valentine is a multi-billionaire with a pronounced lisp, a wicked sense of humour and an aversion to violence.
Throughout the film Vaughn continu- ously reminds viewers not to take the film too seriously, and he consistently pokes fun at the genre and the story lines that define traditional spy movies.
He uses the outlandish nature of some of the characters to his advantage and he makes sure that every action scene is more shocking and over-the-top than the last.
Kingsman will keep viewers on the edge of their seats for the entire length of the movie.
Driven by a talented cast and a visionary director, the film is able to take boundaries and defy expectations in refreshingly entertaining ways.
