Early Buzz: Matthew Vaughn's 'Kingsman: The Secret Service' Is Hyper-Violent, Stylish And Funny

With all the release date shuffling Matthew Vaughn's latest film has endured, one could assume it is no good. The film, Kingsman: The Secret Service, had multiple release dates before settling on February 13, 2015 in the U.S. Usually that's a sign of weakness, but perhaps not in this case. Based on a comic written by Mark Millar, Kingsman: The Secret Service has begun screening for critics and fans in the UK and the buzz is as if the film never moved a muscle. It seems Vaughn has made a film that's very much in line with Kick Ass, but with bigger action, bigger stars and even bigger possibility for franchising.

Below, read some early buzz on Matthew Vaughn's latest film, Kingsman: The Secret Service.

Very encouraging stuff. Plus, it seems U.S. fans will soon get a chance to sneak preview the film as the series creator, Mark Millar, has begun tweeting about a New York screening  on his Twitter: @mrmarkmillar.

So what is Kingsman: The Secret Service about and who is in it? To recap.

Kingsman: The Secret Service opens February 13, 2015. It stars Colin Firth as a bad-ass spy who recruits a troubled, but promising young man (Taron Egerton) to join an elite group of super-spies. It also stars Samuel L. Jackson as the villain, Michael Caine as the head of the spy organization, Mark Strong as another Kingsman officer, and Mark Hamill in a role written specifically for him.

Based upon the acclaimed comic book and directed by Matthew Vaughn (Kick Ass, X-Men First Class), Kingsman: The Secret Service tells the story of a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into the agency's ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius.
