EVERY year the comic book universe continues to expand within Hollywood, brining light to new heroes from the larger universes and the underdogs. This week brings us another comic book story, one that is not in the realm of Superman and Batman, instead it comes from acclaimed writer Frank Miller in the tone of James Bond meets Crank, in one of the most violent, funny and enjoyable stories of 2015 that will define the course of how we see the comic book universes from now on.

Kingsman: The Secret Service is the latest venture from British film producer and director Matthew Vaughn, who previously gave us Layer Cake (2004), Stardust (2007),  Kick Ass (2010) and X-Men: First Class (2011). In following his true form, his latest film is no different providing fun, violence and class in the adaption of the acclaimed comic book, that tells the story of a super-secret spy organisation that recruits a unrefined but promising street kid into the agency’s critical training program, just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius.

As a comic book adaption, this one is a far cry from the rest. It is a gentleman amongst other heroes and it certainly does not disappoint compared to other larger comic book names. Just like the trailer presented, the film boasts great locations, hard hitting action sequences, lot’s of violence and plenty of humour to balance the grit. Even the story is very fitting to our modern society’s behaviour, it’s a pretty alarming topic that makes this story even more enticing and worthwhile.

Alongside the vision of “Vaughn’ and the story of Frank Miller, is an outstanding cast. Colin Firth takes the lead as Harry Hart, with Mark Strong, Mark Hamill, Sofia Boutella, Sophie Cookson, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Caine and Taron Egerton.
