According to the press notes, this movie wryly subverts the conceits of the spy genre, telling the story of a gentleman spy who takes an ordinary working class kid under his wing and trains him in the art of espionage. It's about a street kid's journey from one social class to another, set in the two colliding worlds of life and death adventure and a very ordinary street existence. Matthew Vaughn said: "The film is a blend of everything I learned from making Lock Stock (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998)), Snatch (2000), and Layer Cake (2004), which were gangster movies, as well as my comic book films Kick-Ass (2010) and X-Men: First Class (2011)."

When showing Eggsy the Kingsman gadgets, Galahad tells him that oxfords have open lacing. This is incorrect, as they have closed lacing. It is actually derbies which have open lacing. He further makes an error in classifying brogues as being different from oxfords. They are merely any shoe that have decorative punching regardless of the lacing method. Furthermore, both pairs of shoes shown have oxford lacing. See more »

Stylish, brutal and hilarious. 'Kingsman' is an extremely quintessentially British flick full of over-the-top yet hilarious comedy, brutal violence and a quirky image of England. Since James Bond's debut in 1962, a number of films have attempted to reinvent the genre, with films like 'Johnny English', 'Get Smart', 'This Means War' and many more, however, none have come close to displaying the perfect blend like 'Kingsman' has. Matthew Vaughn has become renowned for taking on action-comedy projects, for instance 'Kick-Ass' (which is still stronger than this but only just), and along the way has kept that feel-good British aspect to it that makes our greatest secret agent (James Bond) such an icon. All-in-all 'Kingsman' is a brilliant, well-executed film.
