If popular films reflect the politics of the era in which they are made, then I guess we get the multiplex entertainment we deserve. The climactic sequence of Kingsman, a sub–Zack Snyder abortion of an action film, absolutely dripping with fascistic smugness, features Colin Firth committing genocide in a church. It’s a gorefest that aims for an Inglourious liberal catharsis, but instead proves as powerful a calling card for the religious right as anything Mel Gibson would contemplate directing.

Like a good comic book artist, Vaughn packs the frames with eye-popping detail, and there’s an infectious creative energy to his violent action sequences, but the film’s hatefulness is hard to stomach.

This film is a lot of zero-calorie flash that makes Guy Ritchie look like John Frankenheimer. Ritchie is insufferably derivative, but at least his commitment to masculinity can be sexy. His best capers are hung, while Vaughn’s pants feel stuffed. Vaughn does have a competence that tends to elude a filmmaker like Ritchie. Kingsman is well oiled… After a while, though, it all starts to repeat itself, even Boutella’s high-speed fights.
