A veteran secret agent takes a young upstart under his wing in Kingsman: The Secret Service, out now at the Showcase in Bargeddie.

Gary ‘Eggsy’ Unwin (Taron Egerton), whose late father secretly worked for a spy organisation, lives in a South London housing estate and seems headed for a life behind bars.

However, dapper agent Harry Hart (Colin Firth) recognises potential in the youth and recruits him to be a trainee in the secret service.

Meanwhile, villainous Richmond Valentine (Samuel L Jackson) launches a diabolical plan to solve the problem of climate change via a worldwide killing spree.

Jane Goldman and Matthew Vaughn reunite to adapt Lanarkshire’s own Mark Millar’s comic book, having previously brought his series Kick-Ass to the big screen.

Kingsman: The Secret Service is rated 15 and runs 129 minutes.
