Kingsman: The Golden Circle Review - Matches the mark

The Hit:

In Kingsman: The Golden Circle, we get yet another exciting thrill of an agent movie and it picks up right off with action and misery. The secret organization known as Kingsman gets demolished and now must rely on their cousins (the Statesman) for help against the new threat known as the golden circle. 

Cast: Taron Egerton, Mark Strong, Hanna Alström, Colin Firth, Julianne Moore, Edward Holcroft, Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Pedro Pascal, Jeff Bridges, and Elton John. 

Pros: I enjoyed The Golden Circle as much as the original Kingsman and it is almost similar in excitement and revelations. The Statesman were a good combination of teamwork with the Kingsman and added that extra comedy for a fun time. More new sweet gadgets from both the good guys and bad guys was great. The interaction between characters was well done, especially in scenes of brutal action to the scenes of utter heartache. The Statesman were just as great as kicking butt as the Kingsman and each held their own against the baddies. 

Cons: I didn't really enjoy the villain in this as much as I did Valentine in the first. Julianne Moore did great playing her character but I didn't feel like she lived up to Valentine's grand scheme. The heart ache I mentioned in my pros, without spoiling anything were some losses that made me bitter but if it was to tell the story and make it progress then it had to be done, but there were some characters I was really bummed about losing. Wish there were more scenes with Channing Tatum and Jeff Bridges. 

As from other critics I didn't feel like something jaw dropping happened in this sequel to make me really push you to go watch it, but it was still just as exciting as the first and worth your time to see it on the big screen. Taron Egerton is a great actor and I enjoy his work and he did just as awesome as he did in the first. For a good spy movie don't miss out on this flick. 

The Verdict:
