Trivia

On the film's specialized direct specific for movie product branding and manufacture, Vanessa Friedman of the 'The New York Times' wrote: "The clothing line is a risky move, as it is so dependent on the success of the film and its potential for sequel after sequel. And the investment required is not insignificant, especially compared with the traditional product placement deals where filmmakers get the stuff free (or as a pay-to-play, depending on the agreement) but the clothing brand gets the associated windfall if your picture makes it big. When you think about this approach, however, the payoff could be huge . . . ready-made content for marketing, not to mention ready-made celebrity spokespeople! Every mention of the movie, every interview with an actor, will be a chance to move merch [= merchandising]. It takes the whole famous-person-with-a-fashion-line . . . to a more abstract, conceptual level." See more »

Goofs

When Eggsy was being interviewed in the police station and demands his right to a phone call, the officer did not have to leave. Under UK law (Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984) Eggsy would have the right to have someone informed of his arrest, but this is not immediate and does not even have to be the person in custody making that call. In any case a police officer or police staff will be present for the call. If he had asked for legal representation then the interview would have stopped immediately, but he would taken back to his cell. See more »

Who said the traditional Bond formula is dead?!!
26 January 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was lucky enough to go to an advanced screening of Kingsman: The Secret Service. Watching the trailer a month ago made me interested to watch this movie since I'm a fan of spy movies especially the 007 movies. The movie is about a young teenager from London called "Eggsy" who is chosen by a professional agent from a super secret organisation who call themselves the "Kingsmen" to go through the deadliest "job interview" to be the next Kingsman spy.

That said I must say I was not disappointed. The action is fast-paced and there's a lot of comedy.The movie is sort of like 007 meets Men in Black. The movie obviously parodies the old traditional 007 formula especially of the Roger Moore era but this is done in a good way. Kingsman; The Secret Service reminded me how great the old 007 formula was until it was changed until Daniel Craig's portrayal of the agent. After watching this movie Daniel Craig better take notes because there is a new agent on the block and that is "Eggsy'.

That being said Kingsman: The Secret Service is the best movie of 2015 so far. Don't miss it!!!
