We went to go see Kingsman 2 a couple of weeks ago, and so much happened that it has taken me a while to gather all of my thoughts on the subject but now I'm ready to write them up, so welcome back to Cinema!
Let me just say right off the bat that I absolutely loved the film. I consider it to be in the list of the few sequels that have surpassed the originals. When kingsman came out I was instantly interested, as a fan of Bond, and The Man from U.N.C.L.E. I figured another British spy would be something interesting to watch. I thought it was going to be your run of the mill spy film, but I was wrong.
The Golden Circle follows along the same strain, a two and a half hour completely tongue in cheek film that continues to follow Eggsy, his girlfriend and his love of dogs. Eggsy is paid a visit by his old rival Charlie, except Charlie is packing brand new robotic prosthetics. Their battle leads to The Kingsman headquarters being blown up, and Eggsy and Merlin out on their own.
Through a unique (In Case of Emergency Pull this) They discover A bottle of Whiskey from Statesman is supposed to save them. Statesman, their American Sister company, has a unique way of entertaining their new visitors. I was personally a huge fan of Halle and Channing in this film.
With the help and resources of Statesman, we meet our evildoer, Poppy. Poppy is a Drug Cartel Leader, that desperately needs a new name. I don't want to ruin the film for you so I won't go into too much more detail.
I really enjoyed this film. I loved its tongue in Cheek comedy, and it's almost manic way of treating my emotions, first I was happy, then Sad, then laughing, and then confused and then my confusion was lifted and I was happy again. I love a movie that will make me feel. You'll have lots of feels in this film, so just a heads up.
When I headed out to see the film, I thought that the trailer had given a lot of the film away, but literally, there's probably an entire two hours left, to see. So don't let that stop you, the film definitely still has some surprises up its sleeves. I haven't read Kingsman, but I'm hoping there's a third one. This is definitely a series I need to add to my film collection.
