KINGSMAN – THE SECRET SERVICE (15)

SHOWCASE CINEMAS PETERBOROUGH, FROM TOMORROW

Based upon Mark Millar’s critically-acclaimed comic-book, this big-budget movie from Matthew Vaughn – director of X-Men: First Class and Kick-Ass – is already garnering some impressive early reviews.

It tells the story of a super-secret spy organisation – including Oscar-winner Colin Firth’s veteran agent – that recruits a promising street kid (Taron Egerton) as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius.

Samuel L Jackson, Mark Strong, Michael Caine and Mark ‘Luke Skywalker’ Hamill co-star in this action-adventure, which – despite being delayed from last year – looks like it could have well been worth the wait.
