Source of story A graphic novel
Elevator Pitch A maniac tech billionaire has a plan to reduce the population of the earth by turning the inhabitants against each other. But standing in his way are members of Kingsman, and a couple of new recruits, one from a dis-functional family. They know who the villain is, but who else is on his side?
Content Many set pieces involving combat with a variety of firearms, trick umbrellas, martial arts and edged weapons. An extremely high body count. A lot of swearing, a single discussion about sex and one shot of a female behind.
A View While this was not quite as great as Kick Ass, it evoked memories of Roger Moore as James Bond and a few other classic action films. So if you don’t go for films with a lot of violence don’t watch this, but if you do, don’t miss it. It was very well liked by the general public.
