Kingsman the Secret Service

Honestly, I have a high expectation for this movie. First, the actors. This movie boast ensemble casts with high profile such as Colin Firth, Michael Caine, Samuel L. Jackson, Mark Strong, even Mark Hamill. Second, it's a movie about spy and I love spy movie. Moreover, it's a movie about spy in suit. How cool is that? It's no wonder that at first I thought it will be a serious spy movie so I'm surprised when it's turn out to be a comedy.

What I love about this movie:

  • The actors. Their actings are good.
  • The music score. I love Henry Jackman's score so much.
  • The premise, the action, the equipments are all cool.

What I don't like:

  • Its highly stylized violence. I've watch Kick-Ass, so I'm familiar with it. But that doesn't mean I'm a fan of it. Generally, I don't like violence in a film. That's why I seldom watch war movies.
  • Some of the scenes that was mean to be a comedy are tasteless.
  • The villain use omkara pendant. Omkara is a sacred symbol in my religion so I was uncomfortable to see the villain use it. But it's okay though... I will also feel uncomfortable if the hero use it.
Overall, I enjoy this movie (I watch it 2 times) & will still recommend you to watch it.
