All-Out Espionage in 'Kingsman: The Secret Service' Clip, Featurette, and TV Spot

The Super Bowl spot for Kingsman: The Secret Service probably contains more fun than the big game itself.

Even with all the action on display, the spot is overshadowed by a new clip and featurette for one reason and one reason only: Samuel L. Jackson's lisp.

Jackson busts out an affected, over the top lisp as Valentine, a tech billionaire who is a theatrical bad guy with a nefarious plan that we don't see often enough in espionage movies these days.  To stop his dastardly scheme, the world must rely upon the Kingsman, a collection of impeccably dapper, impossibly dangerous spies on her majesty's secret service.

Colin Firth stars as Harry Hart, the deadliest and suavest of the all the Kingsmen, a secret agent who could give 007 a run for his money.  Hart picks up a protege in Gary Unwin, a teenaged delinquent who wastes his days doing parkour and stealing cars.  When he's recruited for the most elite spying organization on Earth, though, Unwin must become a Bondian dynamo, getting into all manner of derring-do and going up against Valentine.

British newcomer Taron Egerton plays "Eggsy" Unwin, the nominal hero of Kingsman: The Secret Service.  From the look of this Super Bowl spot, he acquits himself well in the action department and manages to keep up with ringers like Firth and Jackson.

Here's the clip, followed by the featurette:

Director Matthew Vaughn, once again adapting a comic book written by Kick-Ass creator Mark Millar, showed his love for swinging spy movies on his last movie, X-Men: First Class, but here it's on blast, so to speak.  It's like he looked at the villain's lair (a nuclear submarine decorated like a smoking lounge) and decided it just wasn't campy enough.

The supporting cast in Kingsman: The Secret Service includes Michael Caine, Mark Strong, Mark Hamill, and Sofia Boutella.
