Storyline

When the Kingsman headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage, their journey leads them to the discovery of an allied spy organization in the US called Statesman, dating back to the day they were both founded. In a new adventure that tests their agents' strength and wits to the limit, these two elite secret organizations band together to defeat a ruthless common enemy, in order to save the world, something that's becoming a bit of a habit for Eggsy...

Kingsman: The Frantic Sequel
21 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

Why did the first movie work? It worked because THAT movie was conceptualized and executed as a parody to all spy films that came before it, surprising us by juxtaposing the irreverence in the plot with actual character moments that served the gravitas required to bring the entourage to life.

In this second outing, the frenetic nature of the action remains intact, but in fleshing out it's own universe, the movie gives up its predecessor's singular ability to poke fun of the quintessential spy film; sacrificing the meta nature of the plot and resorting to a random nature of plot progression.

Comparisons with the original momentarily put to rest, The Golden Circle is a wild wild ride with interesting(if underused)new characters and creative(if messy)action set pieces. It's fast paced with amusing dialogue interspersed whenever our titular characters are not landing blows at each other.

We waste no time in catching up with Eggsy and the story gets going right off the bat. Over the next couple of hours we're treated to some interesting cameos by top billed actors, with barely veiled call backs to the best parts of the original. For better or worse, it is in these moments of nostalgia that the The Golden Circle is at it's best. Taron Egorton and Colin Firth put in fine performances continuing their characters' interplay from the first movie.

For all the things it does right, it ultimately misses the mark. The wayward plot lends to an incoherence that betrays any suspense, and the bursts of gleeful abandon do so at the expense of having any real stakes whatsoever. The bombastic music that accompanies every action sequence plays fervently and frequently enough until it devolves into an overbearing mess. Where Samuel Jackson's Valentine was a great tongue-in-cheek villain, Julian Moore's Poppy is campy and bizarre at best.

To conclude, Kingsman The Golden Circle is a fun riot with the simple fault of becoming the very movie that the original attempted to parody. Wild and loud enough to hold your interest but not nearly nuanced and nimble enough for you to care.
