While the plot is fairly paint-by-numbers as spy films go, this is an entertaining popcorn movie with great performances by its cast, with some excellent fight choreography. 'Eggsy' is a fresh take on the Bond-like protagonist, while Colin Firth shines as his mentor. A great film with lots of laughs and plenty of exciting action.
"A SUPER-SECRET ORGANIZATION recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into the agency's ultra-competitive training program just as a dire global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius. A phenomenal cast, including ACADEMY AWARD Winners Colin Firth and Michael Caine and OSCAR Nominee Samuel L. Jackson, leads this action-packed spy-thriller directed by Matthew Vaughn (X-Men: First Class)."
