Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Kingsman The Golden Circle

Chris Van Vliet is entertainment news royalty.

The first reviews of spy sequel, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, are in - and as was the case with the first film, have left critics unsure as to what to make of it. Thanks to the miracle of cutting edge technology - and the bottomless Deco travel budget - Chris has this report from across the pond. "You know my momma, she always told me us Southerners got our good manners from the British".

Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Secret Service was one of the best surprises of the year, back when it was released in January of 2015. Still, this fleet-footed, glibly imaginative global romp stays on its toes and keeps its wits about it most of the time, with entertaining and pointedly USA -friendly cast additions that should provide an uptick from the $414 million raked in worldwide by Kingsman: "The Secret Service". Two and a half years after the release of its Bond-spoofing forerunner, Vaughn has returned a sequel, in which the first film's council-estate outcast turned elite secret agent Eggsy (Taron Egerton) takes on an global drugs ring. Now a top agent, all Eggsy's skills are needed within seconds of the opening credits when a familiar face from the first film comes a-killing and unleashes the sort of carmageddon on the streets of London that would make a Fast and Furious fan drool.

"I think my most memorable day on set was when I came in for rehearsal and Colin (Firth) was working with Elton and Elton was wearing a chicken suit", she said.

The film's big bad is Poppy (Julianne Moore), the seemingly folksy but quite vicious head of a multi-billion-dollar drug cartel, The Golden Circle. Let me show you.

NBA star Andrew Bogut signs with Lakers
Above all else, they need a veteran big man who can actually be a leader unlike what Timofey Mozgov brought to the table. Lakers point guard Lonzo Ball would surely benefit off the pick and roll with Bogut as a partner, and vice versa.

And the least we can say is thatthey are rather very mixed. And you'll definitely want to see more from a few.

The first Kingsman film ends with a planet-scale mass murder and death of the most world leaders, but don't think about that too much, The sequel picks up an intermediate amount of time later, where the spy is working as dual life apart from the regular life he is working as Kingsman Secret Spy as well as the working class -sacker.

EMPIREAs ultraviolent as the first film, and as ultrasmutty, The Golden Circle will leave the Kingsfans grinning, even if its characters have less growing to do this time around.

It's through the Statesmen that Eggsy discovers his presumed-dead former mentor, Harry Hart (Colin Firth), seemingly alive and well. "He wanted that to be real and that to be the fate of that character".

Teaming with Merlin (Mark Strong), who has also eluded Poppy's vicious attack, Eggsy must unite with the Kingsman's American counterparts, the Statesman, a team of like-minded super-spies headed up by Jeff Bridges' Champ.
