Kingsman: The Secret Service is directed by Matthew Vaughn and stars Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson, Mark Strong, Taron Egerton, and Michael Caine. The plot of the movie is 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.    This movie is a lot of fun. The performances from everyone in the cast are fantastic and you can tell everyone had fun making this movie and I love seeing that. This is definitely a different type of role for Colin Firth which was something I was worried about going in. Luckily he is badass in this movie you can tell that he is doing a lot of his own stunts. He brings this great charm to his character you love him from the second you first see him. I do wish he had more screen time. He was so much fun to watch and I would love to see Colin Firth in more roles like this. Samuel L. Jackson as the villain I really enjoyed. I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to take his character seriously with the lisp that he added to his performance and it does take time to get used to it, but once I did he was a very fun villain.  Newcomer Taron Egerton was very talented and I'd like to see him take on some more roles. He got me to like his character despite his flaws and criminal background. He also worked very well with the rest of the cast.    The action in the film is beautiful I love the way the action is choreographed and shot in this movie. There is one action scene that takes place in a church that is one of the most jaw-dropping action scenes I've seen in a long time  The only major problem I have is I think the movie gets off to a slow start. In the beginning, I wasn't all that interested in what was going on. Once you get past those first ten minutes it is an extremely entertaining movie.  4 out of 5 stars for Kingsman: The Secret Service. I hope you enjoyed my review.
