The second Kingsman outing feels as if it is trying to relive its glory days ... Rather than feeling like the second outing was capturing the joys of past experiences, I felt like it was instead trying to hit us over the head with, "Do you remember this?"

The original film was a rare one that begged for a sequel and I'm glad we've been handed one.

This is the epitome of "doing the most."

Kingsman: Golden Circle arrives with all the trappings of a normal sequel except one. Unlike the dull, lifeless rehashes, this rehash is quite a bit of fun.

Like plastic bottle discount whiskey, The Golden Circle just doesn't go down easy.

The Golden Circle isn't as lean and mean as its predecessor, but it's welcome encore that's stylish and playful in its own way.

Vaughn has tailored this berserk, ultraviolent, supersized follow-up for the fans, but forgot to sew the character development seam along the way.

[It] doesn't feel like a direct sequel to its excellent predecessor. It feels more like the tired fourth or fifth instalment they made after they ran out of ideas.
Full Review | Original Score: 5.5/10
October 31, 2018
A solid, basically serviceable "here we go again" sequel that mainly functions as a Greatest Hits cover-album.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5
October 30, 2018
It has moments of brazenness but not an entirely consistent attitude that made the first film such a violent, vulgar good time.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

If The Secret Service was an expensive, meticulously-tailored suit, The Golden Circle is a cheap, off-the-rack costume.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10
October 29, 2018
The biggest misstep of "The Golden Circle" is under-utilizing and wasting its spectacular talent.
Full Review | Original Score: D
October 25, 2018
Nearly as disappointing as the first film was surprising. Despite bringing back nearly everyone and adding a few new faces, The Golden Circle pales in comparison. It tries really hard to recreate the magic of the original but falls well short.
Full Review | Original Score: C
October 24, 2018
It's a wild cluster of fun visuals and humor that isn't meant to be taken seriously whatsoever.
October 21, 2018
If you're at all squeamish about the casual violation of women, both onscreen or narratively, then skip this film.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.92/5
October 18, 2018
It feels like Vaughn saying screw you to every studio note he got on the first movie and going balls out to do everything you would never expect. For that, KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE ended up being the best sequel of 2017.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
October 10, 2018
Instead of saving the world, Kingsman 2 is about the personal happiness of characters we barely recognize anymore let alone like enough to see happy.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
October 10, 2018
Manners might maketh man, but magic maketh movies. And The Golden Circle stretches that fine art of illusion one martini too far.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
August 29, 2018
A so-so serviceable sequel for fans of "The Secret Service" that works solely on its action, set pieces, and charismatic performers.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
August 28, 2018
If you can hold out through some antiquated attitudes and stretches of flat comedy, there is much here to appreciate.
Full Review | Original Score: B
