Colin Firth stars as a suave super-spy in this gadget-packed action adventure from the creators of 'Kick-Ass'. Petty criminal Eggsy (Taron Egerton) is bright but troubled. Luckily, his father once saved the life of impeccably dressed secret agent Harry Hart (Colin Firth). Hart decides to repay the debt by recruiting Eggsy to his elite independent international intelligence organisation known as the Kingsmen. The uncouth young protege is entranced by all the amazing weapons and gadgets he'll get to play with, which even include a killer umbrella! But first he has to undergo a rigorous training regime. And now a sinister new global foe has emerged in the form of unspeakably evil Valentine (Samuel L. Jackson). Like the hit 'Kick-Ass', this hyper-real, stunt-filled espionage yarn is adapted by Jane Goldman from a comic book by Dave Gibbons and Mark Millar. Completing the reunited creative team is director Matthew Vaughn, whose credits also include 'X-Men: First Class'.
