  • What a mess it is.

  • Cruel, spineless, virtually laughter-free and, above all, dull. Even putting the plot to paper makes my head ache.

  • The movie is too long, too violent, too silly-too everything. Yet for those who enjoyed the original Kingsman, it is a more than adequate second act. To put it another way: First time satire, second time farce.

  • [Matthew] Vaughn hasn't only run out of things to say but people to hate, and without that underlying aggression, the movie feels like it's just going through the motions. Better luck next time, bruv.

  • While the action rarely flags, the running time is needlessly grandiose and the commercial calculation that underpins everything puts limits on [Matthew] Vaughn's bent for transgression.

    Sep 22, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • If the first played like a simultaneous homage to and parody of Sean Connery's Bond, the second feels like a straight riff on the Roger Moore era: bloated, self-conscious, and smug, with only the occasional flash of nasty wit to put the edge on.

    If you want out of control and over the top action this is the movie for you, sometimes it can be a little much. This sequel does have an amazing cast and a story plot to that is actually very relevant. The only downside is the excessive language and violence, still a good movie in my opinion.

    Sure, very unrealistic and suffers from the typical Hollywood pitfalls, but doesn't pretend to be anything that it's not. Amazing cast, good fight sequences and special effects, and a fun storyline to boot.

    Matthew Vaughn continues his satiric spy series with Kingsman: The Golden Circle, a rather formulaic and underwhelming action film. After a devastating attack on the Kingsman headquarters, Eggsy and Merlin head to America to find their sister organization, the Statesman, and seek their help in discovering who was behind the attack. The plot is rather convoluted and stupid. And its attempts to recreate beats from the first film come off as lazy. Julianne Moore makes for a poor villain, and Jeff Bridges, Channing Tatum, and Halle Berry are relegated to glorified cameos. Still, the fight scenes are pretty exciting and the soundtrack adds some fun energy. It's entertaining and action-packed, but Kingsman: The Golden Circle has its problems and isn't quite as bold and original as the first film

    Not as cartoonish as the first film but fun to watch and a inventive plot. The film is probably 30 minutes two long but I enjoyed it. Some elements from the first film that made it stand out are missing however. 06-24-2018
