Saving the world generally doesn’t look as fun as it used to in spy movies. Looking cool and having a blast has gone out of fashion for some of cinema’s spies – with the notable exception of Xander Cage – who tend to have more inner-turmoil than a good time. They’re sometimes brooding, tortured, and self-serious – which are not the words to describe Eggsy (Taron Edgerton) and the world of Kingsman, born from Mark Millar and Dave Gibbon‘s comic.
Screenwriters Jane Goldman and Matthew Vaughn adapted the source material with glee. That feeling of all-around giddiness comes from the spy movies Goldman and Vaughn, who’ve worked together for over a decade, grew up loving. With Kingsman: The Secret Service and its new sequel, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, the co-writers want to celebrate spy tropes, not poke fun at them, as Goldman recently told us.
