I've enjoyed the promos for Kingsman The Secret Service so far but after a rash of positive early reviews it felt like the trailers were missing something.
Maybe its the presence of Colin Firth or the stylised look but I initially assumed that Kingsmen was going to be very much a PG-13 effort - plenty of slick action but no bloodletting or serious potty-mouthed moments. Thankfully, it's become clear that I was extremely wrong. Here's the the first red band trailer.
I was already interested, now its become one of my most anticipated films of 2015.
Matthew Vaughn did great work on his last Mark Millar adaptation (2010's Kick-Ass) and he's in similar enough territory here, at least in terms of tone. He's also an amazing visual artist and one of the few directors working today who can put together an action scene of any consequence.
Early buzz suggests that there are several such moments in Kingsmen, with special mention made of one lengthy moment involving Colin Firth. I'm going to go ahead and totally speculate that it's the church-based scene which gets some play around 1.55purely because that looks like its going to be mental.
I. Cannot. Wait.
Kingsmen: The Secret Service stars Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Caine and Taron Egerton and is in cinemas from the 12th of February 2015.
