This month’s movie review is Kingsman 2:The Golden Circle. It was released on the 20th September 2017. The movie was written by Jane Goldman and Matthew Vaughn and was directed by Matthew Vaughn.
In the first movie, Kingsman: The Secret Service, which was released in 2014, follows a spy organisation who recruits an unrefined, but promising street kid into the agency’s ultra competitive training program, just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius.
In this movie we see that when their headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage, the Kingsman’s journey leads them to the discovery of an allied spy organisation in the U.S. These two elite secret organisations must band together to defeat a common enemy.

This movie is definitely action packed and fat paced. I’m not the biggest fan of Colin Firth Movie, but I have really enjoyed the Kingsman movies. I really love the character’s personalities in this movie. The sarcasm and comedic factor are really is certainly present throughout.
I loved the fact that Elton John starred as himself in this movie. It’s really not a side that you would expect to see, but I found it extremely entertaining. I loved the allied agency part of the plot, I thought it was really thought out, and seriously funny.
If I am completely honest, I really preferred the first film, Kingsman – The Secret Service. Don’t get wrong, I really enjoyed the movie but I didn’t think much of the main plot. I don’t really have that much to say about this movie. I hate being negative about anything and prefer to review things that are mostly positive but sadly this one is a bot of an in between sort of thing.
Let me know what you thought if you’ve seen the movie.
