‘Kingsman: The Secret Service’ Review: Violent, But Very Entertaining and Gleefully Politically Incorrect
Kingsman: The Secret Service is one of those films that far-left kooks like Melissa Harris-Perry or Al Sharpton would cringe over if they were ever told to watch it. The fact that this film is distributed by 20th Century Fox will add more fuel to the fire, because nowadays when the far left thinks of the Fox brand, they think of the highly successful Fox News Channel, which beats the ratings of both MSNBC and CNN combined. Anyway, enough with the Fox-praising, let’s get down to business.
We start off the film with Harry “Galahad” Hart (Collin Firth), who is on a mission in the Middle East. However, he is unable to stop the death of one of his fellow agents. As a result, he gives a bravery medal to the agent’s widow and her son, Gary “Eggsy” Unwin.
17 years later, Eggsy (Taron Egerton) is an unemployed young adult living in London with his mother, and his abusive stepfather. We see that despite being intelligent and capable, he always gives up immediately at everything he does. In other words, he’s a quitter who’s doomed for failure, and he lives an aimless life. After a run in with the law due to a carjacking he commits, Eggsy is released by British police by request of Hart. It is then that Hart tells Eggsy about Kingsman, a secret agency headquartered in London under the guise of what looks like a fashion house for gentlemen. Hart later gives Eggsy a chance to turn his life around, and become the man he was destined to be.
The premise of the film was fantastic, and so was how this pollen was executed. The characters are great as well. Firth’s character though is by far my favorite. He’s the ideal role model young people need to have these days in a world filled with horrible role models like Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, Beyoncé, Justin Bieber, and of course the endless barrage of Disney Channel or Nickelodeon tartlets and MTV personalities that later turn out to be horrible influences on children once they’re in their twenties. Samuel L. Jackson’s character, the villainous Richmond Valentine, is a combination of some of the enemies that are responsible for destroying this country culturally, politically, and spiritually; tech billionaires like Bill Gates who donate millions of dollars to progressive causes like abortion, global warming alarmists who think the world is overpopulated (in the film, Valentine says “[m]ankind is a virus”), and hip-hop moguls who have made a ton of money ruining the black community with degrading rap songs that talk about drugs, and sex, and call women “hoes”, “dogs”, and “bitches”. In other words, no stereotype is safe from this satirical villain.
The film is entertaining from beginning to end, it has a great plot, it provides fantastic action (even though the ultra-violence in the film is not appropriate for young children under the age of 18 or those who don’t like violence), and it has a moral message young people these days need to live by every day. Did I mention there are positive references to both Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher? Yep, it’s true. I’m not going to spoil the movie to tell you where they are though, you’re just going to have to see the movie yourself. Overall, the film is a must see. It’s the definite go-to Guy’s film, and the go-to film for conservative adults. It definitely will blow you away.
