I used to dislike stories consisting of spy/spies, but lately, they intrigued me a lot. I've started watching Mission Impossible and I gotta say that I like it. So I've decided to watch Kingsman from the moment I first watched its trailer. It sucks that I just got to watch it only now for some reason. I wish I had watched it earlier, because I'm totally in love with it!

First of all, let me say how much I like/love/fond/adore Eggsy. He's just a real cutie ♡ Even his name is cute. And don't get me start on how he speaks (if you don't know, I've always had a thing for cute British guys), minus the curses and cusses though. Warning: from now on, I'll be mooning over Taron Egerton ♡♡♡♡

The storyline is a total killer, it's so good I think I might repeat watching it tomorrow and the day after that and the next and the next—well, you get the hint. The action and fight scenes are really amazing too, and even the weapons used are brilliant! Especially the umbrella. Yup, that's my favourite of all. I'm so happy I got to see Eggsy use the umbrella.

And it's a good thing there weren't so much blood involved  in the movie, even though things did get pretty violent. Especially the part where Lancelot was sliced in half, or when Harry got into a murder spree, or when Eggsy was killing and fighting to save the world (oh goodness, Eggsy in a fight scene is just so fascinating). So it means that pretty much everyone can watch this movie though I am aware that this is a +19 rated movie *coughs*

Can Kingsman 2 be scheduled for filming already? I seriously need more Eggsy.

Overall rate: ★★ (5 out of 5)

Till next time ♡ Love, Humaira
