Kingsman is an entertaining ride with an interesting concept, well-written, well-paced sequences, and well-developed characters. The performances are great all around. The film is extremely well-paced. It hard to believe I just sat in front of my tv for two hours. It’s an exceptional spin on the spy action genre.

However, it’s not without flaws. The editing is rather odd throughout the film. The violence is so gratuitous, especially at the end. It gets distasteful if I’m honest. Also, the villains plan was a very strong plan. Original, and pretty much without flaw. It was too good. It got to the point where he should of been unstoppable. They had to substantially nerf both him and his bodyguard for our heroes to actually win. It just feels cheap.

3.5/5
