Consensus: Stylish, subversive, and above all fun, Kingsman: The Secret Service finds director Matthew Vaughn sending up the spy genre with gleeful abandon.

Richard Roeper
Chicago Sun-Times

On Day One of filming, they must have thrown away the moral compass and taken a group vow to splatter our sensibilities with stylish, gratuitous violence and one "Wait, what?!" moment after another.

Frequently reactionary, bordering on retrograde, bordering on reprobate. But it's also a tremendous amount of fun.

Underneath the silly carnage, there's a tremendously fun film, but as a starting point, it signals the start of a potentially big new franchise.

Any sense of triumph is purely at the level of stuntcraft. The rest feels less than the sum of the moving parts.

Based on a comic book, Kingsman occasionally betrays its roots but Vaughn has adapted it to fit his unique approach.

It's juvenile, but there are enough exploding heads to hold your attention.

Kingsman is not a film for gentlemen. It's for us, the great unwashed, bloodthirsty audience. It's an immaculately engineered, laugh-out-loud appeal to our own depravity.

Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

A lusting addiction to cartoonish carnage drags Kingsman: The Secret Service down. And by the end, the movie's out-sexismed Roger Moore-era 007 at its smarmiest and smuggest. Lesson learned--cock-of-the-walk dickishness knows no class bounds.

Stylish, fun, adventurous and silly, "Kingsman" is an exuberant mix between James Bond and Jason Bourne. There's little of substance and… More
