I don't know why some people like this. Plot is very predictable, horrible acting and needless violence. If you are looking for violent type of action film, watch Tarantino's Kill Bill instead. If you say it has a good plot, check out The Skin I Live In by Almodovar. Lastly, 0 for cinematography. That concludes my review.

Brilliant film with brilliant acting. Samuel L Jackson absolutely kills it as the main villain (and the lisp is hilarious as well). It's a completely different take on spy movies, with the hero (Eggsy) coming from a low class poor background and beating all the rich snobs in training. And then we get to the music. With brilliant tracks such as Free Bird (Lynyrd Skynyrd) and Give It Up (KC And The Sunshine Band) you cannot pretend to hate it. I can't get enough of this movie.

There is a cliché that the european aristocracy developed weak chins as a sign of in breeding. The chin was a genetic trait that continued because they continued inter-marrying (no-one wanted their children to marry beneath their station but all options were already related) and no other dominant feature could be introduced. Firth's character made the comment to push Caine's character to accept a candidate from outside the normal pool to avoid inherent weaknesses. He was also calling Caine's character out
