Ever since the latest trailer was released, we are more than excited to see Colin Firth and Samuel L. Jackson in Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Secret Service. Based on the comic book, The Secret Service, a veteran secret agent takes his stubborn his young protege and trains him in the double-crossing world of espionage.
In the comic book series, The Secret Service, a group of terrorists abduct Mark Hamill, the Star Wars actor, who is being held against his will in Switzerland. While agent Jack London is investigating a series of celebrity kidnappings, his sister-in-law forces him to use his high security rank to release her son from prison. London sees potential in his nephew, thinking he can turn him into a spy.
Here are five reasons why audiences should be excited to see Colin Firth as an action hero in Kingsman: The Secret Service.
5) James Bond
Both the movie and comic are a satire on the spy thriller genre, especially the James Bond movies. Notice how the Pride and Prejudice actor looks pristine in his expensive suits. Though the role asks the English actor to be an action, he also has to bring in his comedic timing.
Comic book fans will recognize Mark Millar's name from the gritty and hyper-violent Kick-Ass movies. Though there have been name changes, such as Jack London to Harry Hart, the spirit of the book is still the same. Vaughn is back adapting another one of Millar's books and returning to the genre itself, after X-Men: First Class.
3) The Bar Fight
In the trailer, we see Hart (Firth) locking up the doors, just to make sure no one leaves. Hart then takes on the entire gang, using his fists and super-gadgets. As soon as the brawl is over, Hart sits down apologizes and explains he was letting "off some steam."
2) Samuel L. Jackson
In the footage, the Pulp Fiction actor shouts to his sword-legged assassin, "If you get blood on the carpets, you have to take the carpets up!" You want someone to go up against the Oscar-winning The King's Speech actor, this is your guy.
Viewers will want a cool soundtrack to go along with the action sequences. Listen closely to the background and you will hear a snippet of the untitled Iggy Azalea song featuring Ellie Goulding.
Kingsman: The Secret Service will hit theaters on Feb. 13, right before Valentine's Day. Readers, are you excited to see this spy/action thriller?© 2019 Mstars News, All rights reserved. Do not reproduce without permission.
