'The Secret Service' film more 'fun' than recent Bonds claims its creator

26-Jul-2014 • Bond News

Colin Firth is on top form as Harry Hart, a veteran spy who recruits a young upstart in Matthew Vaughn's theatrical interpretation of the "The Secret Service" - a graphic novel by Mark Millar.

"Kingsman: The Secret Service" cast and crew were at ComicCon this week and Screen Invasion reports that the creator, Millar, made some comparisons to the 007 franchise. "It’s fun to see a spy movie that’s fun again. Now you see Bond and he’s crying in the shower….You don’t want to watch a spy movie that you want to kill yourself after."

Firth was complementary about the long legacy of spy-fi that has gone before this picture, saying that taking this role was "like stepping in to the shoes of the people who were your hero growing up."

He added: "Growing up in the ’60s – the character of the spy had his roots then, it’s the Man from UNCLE, it’s the guy in that suit who seems slick and cool and capable but cross him at your own peril. He’ll get you with a slick move or a gadget."
