Based upon the acclaimed comic book by Mark Millar and directed by Matthew Vaughn (of “Kick Ass” and “X-Men: First Class” fame), “Kingsman: The Secret Service” tells the story of a super-secret spy organisation that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into the agency’s ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges form a twisted tech genius.

The film, set in a more old-fashioned espionage movie world (think old James Bond flicks) stars Oscar-winner Colin Firth as a master secret spy who mentors street kid Gary Unwin aka “Eggsy” (played by Taron Egerton). Except, director Matthew Vaughn will bring some of his now-trademark flourishes and cheekiness to the film. Which will inevitably make the “Secret Service” sound and look more intriguing than it appears to be, of course.
