'The Secret Service' film more 'fun' than recent Bonds claims its creator
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. "Itâs fun to see a spy movie thatâs fun again. Now you see Bond and heâs crying in the showerâ¦.You donât 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 â60s â the character of the spy had his roots then, itâs the Man from UNCLE, itâs the guy in that suit who seems slick and cool and capable but cross him at your own peril. Heâll get you with a slick move or a gadget."
