Analyse and Reviews :

"Kingsman is jubilant because everything is exaggerated and offbeat."

Kingsman is jubilant because everything is exaggerated and offbeat. The director oscillates between the hilarious and the grotesque. One can take the example of the meeting between Harry Hart ( Colin Firth ) and Valentine ( Samuel L. Jackson ) around a very chic dinner in a sumptuous home where the silver bells conceals ... Bic Mac !
Serious subjects are tackled, such as class struggle or ecology, are treated with a derision that might be displaced if it was not so voluntary. Eggsy ( Taron Egerton ), which is the emblem of social ascension, is depicted in a radically different way from that of his peers. Valentine, who has also been able to rise socially thanks to her genius, has fallen into the trap of corruption, a characteristic inseparable from the "superior" class if one believes the film. Only Harry Hart understood what really makes a gentleman, not his birth but his manners and, just at importantly, the way he dresses.
To support this unlikely universe, the cast must have been excellent. And it does not disappoint. Colin Firth is masterful in his role as  secret agent gentleman, he carries by himself all the elegance of the film but it is Samuel L. Jackson who gains the palm of eccentricity in his megalomaniac millionaire character. One Can not help laughing as soon as he spoke.

Finally, Kingsman is a film anchored in its era, full of cinematographic reference that will delight moviegoers. Between British phlegm and American exuberance, it is a ovni that arrives at the right time.
