Kingsman: The Secret Service

Ever since the latest trailer was released, we are more than excited to see Colin Firth and Samuel L. Jackson in Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Secret Service. Based on the comic book, The Secret Service, a veteran secret agent takes his stubborn his young protege and trains him in the double-crossing world of espionage.

Here are five reasons why audiences should be excited to see Colin Firth as an action hero in Kingsman: The Secret Service.

5) James Bond

Both the movie and comic are a satire on the spy thriller genre, especially the James Bond movies. Notice how the Pride and Prejudice actor looks pristine in his expensive suits. Though the role asks the English actor to be an action, he also has to bring in his comedic timing.

4) Kick-Ass

Comic book fans will recognize Mark Millar's name from the gritty and hyper-violent Kick-Ass movies. Though there have been name changes, such as Jack London to Harry Hart, the spirit of the book is still the same. Vaughn is back adapting another one of Millar's books and returning to the genre itself, after X-Men: First Class.

3) The Bar Fight

In the trailer, we see Hart (Firth) locking up the doors, just to make sure no one leaves. Hart then takes on the entire gang, using his fists and super-gadgets. As soon as the brawl is over, Hart sits down apologizes and explains he was letting "off some steam."

2) Samuel L. Jackson

In the footage, the Pulp Fiction actor shouts to his sword-legged assassin, "If you get blood on the carpets, you have to take the carpets up!" You want someone to go up against the Oscar-winning The King's Speech actor, this is your guy.

So, Colin Firth wears a suit and carries an umbrella as he tackles the bad guys? A homage to Patrick Macnee as John Steed in THE AVENGERS.
