Colin Firth Has a Lovely Pint of Guinness and a Kick Ass Fight in This Kingsman Clip

Matthew Vaughn is easily one of my favourite directors working today, and one of the most eclectic. He made a decent debut with Layer Cake in 2004 before bringing a delightful take on Neil Gaiman's Stardust to screens three years later. He's gone big with X-Men First Class and had his share of writing and producing credits.

And he also made Kick-Ass, which confirmed (for the people who care) that he's one of the best action directors around. And now he's back in that mode with Kingsman: The Secret Service.

Based on a comic series by Mark Millar (he who created Kick-Ass) it's about a street kid who gets taken in by a government agency with a little help from a spiffy Colin Firth. And you can see just how much fun the actor and director Vaughn is having with this clip.

That's pretty fantastic stuff, if I do say so myself.

The shots may be CG assisted but they're fluid and there's a lot to like about where Vaughn places his camera. It's also all aggreably visceral, with the full film rumoured to be chock full of the nasty claret stuff, which I'm very much in favour of.

Honestly, I can't wait.

Kingsman: the Secret Service is in cinemas from the 29th of January 2015
