Quintessentially British, Hilariously Funny, Brutally Violent
Stylish, brutal and hilarious. 'Kingsman' is an extremely quintessentially British flick full of over-the-top yet hilarious comedy, brutal violence and a quirky image of England. Since James Bond's debut in 1962, a number of films have attempted to reinvent the genre, with films like 'Johnny English', 'Get Smart', 'This Means War' and many more, however, none have come close to displaying the perfect blend like 'Kingsman' has. Matthew Vaughn has become renowned for taking on action-comedy projects, for instance 'Kick-Ass' (which is still stronger than this but only just), and along the way has kept that feel-good British aspect to it that makes our greatest secret agent (James Bond) such an icon. All-in-all 'Kingsman' is a brilliant, well-executed film.

Quotes

Lancelot: This is Zero One Alpha. We have secured Falcon. I say again, we have secured Falcon.

Harry Hart: One. Two. Three.
Harry Hart: Four....


Goofs

Many people think Gazelle has a security implant (visible by the scar behind her ear) and that her head should explode like the other conspirators' heads do when "Merlin" activates the security system. However this is because when the implant is first observed by the Kingsmen (during the video of Valentine SIM cards announcement), viewers mistake the character the scar is shown on for Gazelle. But it's not her, it's a nameless Valentine assistant (played by Johanna Taylor) that in that particular scene looks a bit like Gazelle. Gazelle does not have an implant.


Crazy Credits

The opening credits are formed by pieces of rubble that fall off of an Arabian compound during the opening scene. The title of the movie itself is formed by snowflakes in a snow globe.


Alternate Versions

In some home video versions of the film, Eggsy's response to Rufus' joke about suspecting him of being a McDonald's employee is omitted.
