When their headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage, the Kingsman's journey leads them to the discovery of an allied spy organization in the United States. These two elite secret organizations must band together to defeat a common enemy.
Baby is a young and partially hearing impaired getaway driver who can make any wild move while in motion with the right track playing. It's a critical talent he needs to survive his indentured servitude to the crime boss, Doc, who values his role in his meticulously planned robberies. However, just when Baby thinks he is finally free and clear to have his own life with his new girlfriend, Debora, Doc coerces him back for another job. Now saddled with a crew of thugs too violently unstable to keep to Doc's plans, Baby finds himself and everything he cares for in terrible danger. To survive and escape the coming maelstrom, it will take all of Baby's skill, wits and daring, but even on the best track, can he make it when life is forcing him to face the music?Written by

According to Edgar Wright, each script sent to the main actors that were wanted for their respective roles included an iPod that contained a list of songs that was to be played (arranged in specific order) while reading a particular scene for the movie in order to emphasize the tone. See more »
During the course of the film, Baby frequently has music playing in his ears in order to drown out the tinnitus (ringing in ear) he suffers. However, most ear specialists recommend people with tinnitus to limit being around loud noises, which would include playing music via earbuds; Baby might being inflicting more damage to his hearing. However, he is also participating in armed robberies, which is not recommended as a healthy cure either. In one briefing scene, we see that Baby hears the instructions even though it seems he can't hear due to the music. This means he doesn't necessarily listen at loud volumes and only plays music enough to drown out the annoying tinnitus. See more »
Your tattoo says 'hat'?
Yeah, it used to say 'hate'. But to increase my chances of employment I had the E removed.
How's that working out for you?
Who doesn't like hats?

1. You can't force "clever." Something is either clever or it is not. This film is ambitious but not clever. If you want clever, done right, watch Lucky Number Sleven.
2. The romantic arc is weird, too convenient, not well developed and there is no chemistry.
3. To borrow a line from Kevin Spacey's dialog, you want the good news? The good news is that the romantic arc is not an issue because this film a much bigger issue. No audience connection. By the 60 minute minute I did not care about Baby, or his instant girlfriend, or Spacey, of anyone. OK, I actually did care about the little kid who played the nephew. He should have starred.
4. For those who care about dramatic structure, Fox's character is so top-heavy that he should be counter-point. But to who? Baby is so lightweight for most the movie that he cannot be counterpoint to Fox and Spacey at the same time.
Over-rated to a scary degree. No wonder no two people can agree on anything anymore.
