KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE is a comedy action drama about a group of privately funded secret agents.

Violence

There are a number of highly stylised choreographed fight scenes that are distanced from more brutal and realistic portrayals of violence. The fighting involves the use of weapons such as guns, knives, axes, explosive devices and prosthetic legs fashioned as razor-sharp blades. The action in these scenes is fast-paced and rapidly-edited, and although the violence is strong and bloody there is no lingering focus on pain and injury. Bloody injury detail is also present in the aftermath of violent incidents but this is again not dwelt upon to any undue extent.

Language

There is frequent use of strong language ('f**k', 'motherf**ker'). Other terms include 'wanker, 'shit, 'tits, 'whores' and the discriminatory terms, 'nigger' and 'fag'.

The film also contains strong sex references.

This film was originally seen for advice in an unfinished version. The company was informed the film was likely to be classified 18, but that their requested 15 could be achieved by making some reductions in scenes of violence. When the finished version was submitted for formal classification, reductions had been made and the film was passed 15.
