QUICK TAKE:
Action: A young British man is recruited into a secret society of spies and has to help foil a megalomaniac's plot to take over the world.
PLOT:
Harry Hart (COLIN FIRTH) is the best member of an elite spy agency known as the Kingsmen based in London. During a rescue mission to save the kidnapped Professor Arnold (MARK HAMILL), one of his fellow Kingsmen is killed, and the agency must recruit a new member to replace him. Harry takes under his wing Eggsy Unwin (TARON EGERTON), the young twenty-something son of another deceased Kingsmen who saved Harry's life on a mission 17 years earlier. Harry's boss, Arthur (MICHAEL CAINE), doubts his choice and instead has more faith in a skilled female recruit named Roxy (SOPHIE COOKSON) or Eggsy's arrogant rival, Charlie (EDWARD HOLCROFT).

As the young candidates vie to become Kingsmen, a billionaire megalomaniac named Valentine (SAMUEL L. JACKSON) plots to distribute free cell phones and offer free Internet worldwide, then activate a signal within the technology that will turn all of humanity into packs of mindlessly violent savages bent on killing each other. His goal is to wipe out most of humanity and restart the planet with a chosen few -- mostly the wealthy, elite, and famous. He employs a female assassin named Gazelle (SOFIA BOUTELLA), who has had both legs amputated and replaced with metal prosthetic limbs that she wields as extremely sharp swords capable of fatally slicing and dicing her prey.

As the countdown to Doomsday looms, Eggsy's cloak-and-dagger skills continue to evolve to the point where he becomes key to saving the world. He finds a major supporter in the Kingsmen's resident technology expert, Merlin (MARK STRONG), and eventually mounts an all-out assault on Valentine's remote stronghold.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Teens will definitely have the most interest due to the younger-skewing supporting cast and the naughty content.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For sequences of strong violence, language, and some sexual content.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
