D ETAILED S TORYLINE
When Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Secret Service opened in early 2015, several things happened. First of all, it introduced the Kingsmen, an independent, self-funded British spy organisation dedicated to keeping the world safe whilst, thanks to their cover as a high-end tailors, looking like they'd just stepped out of a Savile Row shop front window. We met Harry Hart aka Galahad, a suave gentleman spy played by Colin Firth with grace, charm and the ability to wield a lethal umbrella. There was Merlin (Mark Strong), the organisation's fastidious Scottish tech guru; Chester King aka Arthur (Michael Caine), a leader with a dark side; Roxy (Sophie Cookson), an eager new recruit. And, last but certainly not least, Eggsy (Taron Egerton), a kid from the wrong side of the tracks who is recruited, taken under Harry's wing, and who finally becomes a true Kingsman, rough edges and all.

Secondly, it was a no-holds-barred, boundlessly inventive action film that played with and subverted the tropes established by a thousand spy movies before it, with Vaughn and co-writer Jane Goldman coming up with a fast, funny and consistently surprising concoction that constantly broke the rules and brought us things that had never been seen in a mainstream movie before, from an exhilarating action sequence set in a church to a setpiece where dozens of heads explode to the strains of Edward Elgar's "Pomp & Circumstance".

Thirdly, audiences around the world ate up the combination of old-school spy thrills and bright, new, modern twists. Kingsman: The Secret Service made over $400 million worldwide, and paved the way for a sequel. That sequel is Kingsman: The Golden Circle, in which Eggsy and the Kingsmen return to team up with an American organisation to tackle a megalomaniacal, deluded villain with designs on taking over the world. And it presented Vaughn - a man who has reinvigorated the gangster movie, the superhero movie and the fantasy movie with aplomb - with the challenge of his career.
