Starring: Colin Firth, Taron Egerton, Mark Strong, Michael Caine, Samuel L. Jackson, Sofia Boutella, Sophie Cookson
Plot: A spy organization 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 (IMDB.com).
Overall: Sort of a weak plot, and the effects were rather weird, unnecessarily dramatic. I really liked the character development and many of the characters were admirable in their own way—which for me, as a writer, is a strength for the basis of a successful film. I want to give major kudos to Egerton who plays Eggsy for his incredible performance in this film. Great cast, for sure. I just wish the plot was a little bit stronger and the effects were done better. Those were my biggest complaints.
