The Golden Circle' Reviews Are Not Golden — First 'Kingsman

"He is hilarious in the film".

That said, nothing beats Sofia Boutella's Gazelle, she of the cool lethal prosthetic blade legs from the first film. While Poppy's tactics will leave people wondering whether she's right or wrong in her goal, people will no doubt be rooting for her demise at the same time.

Yet, at several points in this film, I found myself laughing at the dirty jokes and dark humour.

He continued: "But I also think that opening sequence is fantastic". It is a sequel to Kingsman The Secret Service that is based on the comic book series Kingsman which is created by Dave Gibbons and Mark Millar. "You want to do something that's different".

In 2014 audiences were introduced to Gary 'Eggsy' Unwin played by relative newcomer Taron Edgerton in Kingsman: The Secret Service.

The Golden Circle comes out swinging. Appearing in almost every other scene (you can hardly call it a cameo), wearing a ludicrous multi-coloured feathered costume, diamond helmet and goggles, Elton John has no purpose. When the promotional material for sequel revealed that Colin Firth would be reprising the role, many fans presumed the decision to bring Harry back was made because the character proved to be too popular to omit from the second film. As a result, The Golden Circle often feels precisely tailored when it should've been cut a little looser. It's all I've wanted to do since I was about 10 I think. The Golden Circle has sharp satire in spades, however.

Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune: "Kingsman: "The Golden Circle" offers everything - several bored Oscar winners, two scenes featuring death by meat grinder, Elton John mugging in close-up - except a good time". But Vaughn and co-writer Jane Goldman give it a try by blowing up the Kingsman HQ. He's already stated he's working on expanding the Kingsman universe, and has also had talks with Warner Bros. about Man of Steel 2. The universe could continue with new agents. I was thinking, ain't that a pity: "y'all ain't keep none for yourself". For now, we'll just have to wait and see how Kingsman: The Golden Circle does.

Any initial apprehension over a US-centric sequel taking away the "Britishness" of Kingsman - heart and soul of the original 2015 film - quickly dissipates, as The Golden Circleretains its Brit humour and sentiments. It'd actually be refreshing if we got quote unquote summer movies spread throughout the year.
