Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017)
Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy
The sequel to the surprisingly very successful first Kingsman movie that I could not wait to see 😀 . I can say this film is very entertaining and does please those fans of the original movie 🙂 . It’s great to see the familiar characters Eggsy (Taron Egerton), Merlin (Mark Strong) and the return of Colin Firth as Harry Hart. I really enjoyed the introduction to the American Statesman and loved that their code names where drinks such as Tequila (Channing Tatum) 🙂 . The story itself was very entertaining with its twists and surprises along the way. This film has many shocks and is not afraid to kill of some characters (even when you thought they would be safe 😛 ). I liked that it did not forget what had happened in the first film like who his girlfriend is (though you do wonder why is he dating her? 😛 ) and explaining why certain things happen. The villain Poppy (Julianne Moore) is absolutely terrifying and I do not question her power (being a difficult one to defeat). Plus I loved seeing more spy objects, spy fights and action scenes such as the ski lift 😀 . However, this film is long and the magic of the first movie could not be recreated for this sequel. I am not sure what it was that made this film lack, but as this movie continued you do feel it. Maybe it was that we had too many new characters and being in a completely different agency taking away too much familiarity. Maybe the villains defeat was very unimpressive compared to Valentine’s (Samuel L .Jackson). Though, this film has Elton John who is incredible funny in “Wednesday Night” scene 😛 . This movie is fabulous and is great for any fan of the original who wants to see more of the Kingsman and I can’t wait to see if a third movie is on the way 😀 . It is worth the watch just doesn’t have the magic of the first. Enjoy 🙂
I give this film 4.5 Stars out of 5!
