Kingsman: The Golden Circle is the sequel to the original 2015 Kingsman movie that I gave a very high 4/5 score when I reviewed it. Yet again we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) take on the bad guys after becoming an official member of Kingsman. Most of the surviving members from the last movie also return for this outing as they take on a world’s largest drug cartel.
The acting once again is very good, and I particularly liked how Elton John was used throughout the movie, even though at first, I really did think it was a lookalike playing the part. The two-hour movie is also fast paced and full of action throughout with the same type of humour as the original. The CGI is, in the most part, very well done but the car chase just didn’t look believable – I’m assuming it was CGI, if not then it was good driving!
When I watched this movie, I could not help thinking that following the success of the first one, with a British storyline, this one was made more for the American market. This is not a bad thing, but I would have preferred it more like the original. I don’t want to spoil the plot by saying anymore though 😊
I would rate this a very high 4/5 and it is definitely a well written sequel.
