Color me pleasantly surprised. While parts of this movie seem very 'TV movie-ish' at times, overall it's just a heartwarming tale based on true events which actually made me care about the characters. Granted, there are a lot of Oscar nominated films out there I would suggest you see before this one..., but it's worth a view of you like this type of movie.
Knowing that none of us (save those few who have ever actually donned the uniform of a U.S. Military soldier to defend our country) can ever fully appreciate the sacrifice, bravery, courage and utter hell that they must go thru, both in war and after they return home..., war films like this and The Hurt Locker can only give us a glimpse into what it must be like for them. As intense and graphic as this film is I'm certain it only scratches the surface. I'd like to know so much more and yet I really don't wish to know. I'm not sure I could. Something about this film tugged at my emotions more so than I care to admit. I am so grateful to all those who have served our country.
Kingsman injects a whole lot of fun at the movies for the secret agent/spy genre. I really liked the way they inject British humour and made it a more entertaining film. I hadn't read, nor was I familiar with, the comic book/graphic novel on which it's based and thankfully, there is no need to have done so. It's good to see filmmakers who are not afraid to show new creativity in their product and offer the audience a very satisfying end result.
