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.

Jason Buchanan
TV Guide's Movie Guide

A rousing dose of retro-fueled fun, replete with sharply dressed secret agents, hi-tech gadgets, lethal henchmen (er, henchwomen), and, of course, a diabolical villain with a secluded mountain-top stronghold.

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.

However far-fetched and theatrical Kingsman: The Secret Service may be, it's a tepid throwback.

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.

One of the most smartly-crafted action films of recent years... [but] it has some grim, grim thoughts about human beings and society.
