Kingsman: The Secret Service

Factual error: When the barracks are completely flooded, several of the trainees shove shower hoses down the toilets for an "unlimited supply of air" (Merlin describes it as "simple physics"). However, that old fireman's trick is a technique for surviving dense smoke, which is not under fluid pressure. In the barracks flooded 9 feet deep with water, the pressure would be so enormous that it would easily gush straight down the toilets in a powerful torrent, eliminating any "unlimited air supply."

Factual error: When the barracks are completely flooded, Eggsy uses his bare fist to punch through a large two-way mirror to escape. The fact is that any glass (or plexiglas) thick enough to contain hundreds (or thousands) of tons of water without bursting would be as impenetrable as concrete to Eggsy's bare fist. He would need a chisel-tipped jackhammer to penetrate such a mirror.

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Galahad is taking Eggsy below ground at the Kingsman Tailor Shop, they enter the dressing room and the door is open with it still open in the mirror in the next shot. Then when they go below ground it is magically closed.

Trivia: Eggsy needs the code for the prison door that holds Princess Tilde. The code given is "2625." This spells out the word "anal" on a telephone keypad.

More quotes from Kingsman: The Secret Service

Question: Harry told Dean he had enough information on him to have him locked up for life. What information was this?

MikeH

Answer: Details aren't given, but it seems that Dean is involved in local crime along with the gang that hangs around with him. Even if Harry is bluffing, and doesn't have specific proof, it is clear that he is abusive and he has the recording of him threatening Eggsy.

Answer: CCTV surveillance and such like. And a possible kingsman informant embedded in the gang leaking incriminating info. Or police informer who reports to kingsman. Or, y'know, he was lying.

Question: What was the point of the "shooting the dog" test?

MikeH

Answer: It was to test whether the candidates were willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done. If they were willing to shoot the dog they had been caring for, it means they would be willing to make a tough choice in the field to complete a mission.

Answer: To see who is kind hearted or cold blooded, a spy has to make tough choices in the field.

Question: If anyone who's been booted talks about Kingsman, they and their family will end up in a body bag. How come Charlie escaped that fate? (00:30:52)
