Storyline Heading
When their 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...

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Adventure - Like the first film, this is a violent and darkly comic spy action thriller. The key players from the first, Taron Egerton, Mark Strong, and even Colin Firth return and are joined by many other name actors this time, such as Julianne Moore, Halle Berry, Channing Tatum, and Jeff Bridges. Fans of the latter two may be disappointed by their limited screen time. Language, sexual content, some raunchy humor, and bloody, if sometimes cartoonish, violence make the film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average ...feels overlong and overstuffed and, although there are individual moments that snap, crackle, and pop, the production as a whole is bloated and at times even a little tedious. There's fun to be had but it's not consistent and at times it's disappointing how certain scenes play out.

NY Post Full Review
Average ...absurd... It's just too d-mn weird. The sequel is still funny in spots — especially kung-fu Elton — and the A-list cast hits the mark, but ”Golden Circle” is too scattered and way overstuffed.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Very Poor ...a parody of a parody so soulless that it makes its predecessor seem like a classic in retrospect. ...grandiose but monotone action lacks spark, never raising any stakes because of how it begins at a fever pitch, a buoyancy that the film doesn't work against or come down from.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 93 moviegoers:
TEENS: Great Reviews from both the males and females!
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: One male loved it and one felt it was an "average" movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable). All four of the ladies loved "Kingsman."
ADULTS: These reviews are good, but not great. About 45% of the males and 35% of the females loved it. Close to another 30% of the males and just over 20% of the females enjoyed "The Golden Circle" very much, rating it "above average." Another 25% of the males and 30% of the females felt it was an "average" movie, which is a bit on the low side but not a bad review. However, a small percentage were very disappointed and rated this movie "poor."


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
When Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Secret Service opened in early 2015, several things happened. First of all, it introduced the Kingsmen, an independent, self-funded British spy organisation dedicated to keeping the world safe whilst, thanks to their cover as a high-end tailors, looking like they'd just stepped out of a Savile Row shop front window. We met Harry Hart aka Galahad, a suave gentleman spy played by Colin Firth with grace, charm and the ability to wield a lethal umbrella. There was Merlin (Mark Strong), the organisation's fastidious Scottish tech guru; Chester King aka Arthur (Michael Caine), a leader with a dark side; Roxy (Sophie Cookson), an eager new recruit. And, last but certainly not least, Eggsy (Taron Egerton), a kid from the wrong side of the tracks who is recruited, taken under Harry's wing, and who finally becomes a true Kingsman, rough edges and all.

Secondly, it was a no-holds-barred, boundlessly inventive action film that played with and subverted the tropes established by a thousand spy movies before it, with Vaughn and co-writer Jane Goldman coming up with a fast, funny and consistently surprising concoction that constantly broke the rules and brought us things that had never been seen in a mainstream movie before, from an exhilarating action sequence set in a church to a setpiece where dozens of heads explode to the strains of Edward Elgar's "Pomp & Circumstance".

Thirdly, audiences around the world ate up the combination of old-school spy thrills and bright, new, modern twists. Kingsman: The Secret Service made over $400 million worldwide, and paved the way for a sequel. That sequel is Kingsman: The Golden Circle, in which Eggsy and the Kingsmen return to team up with an American organisation to tackle a megalomaniacal, deluded villain with designs on taking over the world. And it presented Vaughn - a man who has reinvigorated the gangster movie, the superhero movie and the fantasy movie with aplomb - with the challenge of his career.
