Kingsman: The Golden Circle is a 2017 Action/Adventure/Comedy film that is starring Taron Egerton, Channing Tatum, Colin Firth, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore and Mark Strong. It is directed by Matthew Vaughn (who directed the first Kingsman film as well as Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class). A synopsis for this film via IMDb reads: “When their headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage, the Kingsman’s journey leads them to the discovery of an allied spy organization in the US. These two elite secret organizations must band together to defeat a common enemy”.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle has something for everyone who has been a fan of the franchise. There is plenty of action, humor and special effects and I must say visually it’s very impressive. I keep wondering why the film hasn’t been shown in 3D. I think it would have been amazing. The plot is decent, especially for a sequel, but it never quite reaches the same level as the first film. The British/American theme works well and there are some very funny cultural jokes and references.
I am a fan of Kingsman; I had looked forward to watching The Golden Circle and I’m pleased that the sequel didn’t disappoint. It sticks to everything that made the first movie such a success, including taking some big risks and thinking out of the box. The end result is an imperfect and at times messy film, but a rewarding and highly entertaining one nonetheless. Julianne Moore is a great addition as the villain, and I absolutely loved the scene where Merlin sings John Denver‘s Take Me Home, Country Roads. It was funny and sad at the same time.
I can’t hide that I have a thing for Hanna Alström, who plays Princess Tilde and I was happy to see that her story had a happy ending. I hope there are going to be more Kingsman films in the future. It was great to see Halle Berry again in a big production, as I think she is a great actress. If I were to rate this film it would get a 7 out of 10. It is entertaining enough, but not as good as its predecessor. Go and watch it and judge for yourself.
