Kingsman successfully pulled the rug on many preconceived ideas. It managed to reshape the spy movie, making it fun, tongue-in-cheek, ultra-cool, ultra-violent and thoroughly entertaining.The better and more effective rug-pull was making Colin Firth an action hero.

There is now where else this is better exemplified than in the great Church-Fight scene

Set in the year 1999 during the last days of the old millennium, the movie tells the story of Lenny Nero, an ex-cop who now deals with data-discs containing recorded memories and emotions. One day he receives a disc which contains the memories of a murderer killing a prostitute. Lenny investigates and is pulled deeper and deeper in a whirl of blackmail, murder and rape. Will he survive and solve the case? IMDB
