Kingsmen: The Golden Circle

Jays Rating:
Actors: /

In this exciting sequel, the British spy organization known as the Kingsman teams up with another spy group from the United States to save the world in the action, adventure, comedy, Kingsman: The Golden Circle. The story picks up one year after the last film and the Kingsman headquarters are immediately destroyed killing all the Kingsman except Merlin (Mark Strong) and Eggsy (Taron Egerton). The Kingsman are under attack by a drug lord named Poppy (Julianne Moore) who runs an organization called the Golden Circle and who claims responsibility for the bombing. Poppy and the Golden Circle want to legalize all drugs so they spread a deadly virus all over the world to force the issue. Eggsy and Merlin can’t fight Poppy by themselves so they travel to the U.S. and ask for help from an allied spy organization called, the Statesman. Some of the members of the Statesman are Champ (Jeff Bridges), Tequila (Channing Tatum), Whiskey (Pedro Spastal) and a tech support Statesman, Ginger (Halle Berry). The two groups team up to find the antidote that will cure the people who are infected. This film begins with explosions, car chases, and yes, a lot of violence. It ends the same way but the middle is where the flaws show up. Although the dialogue is really juvenile, kids can’t go because there are so many F-bombs that parents will have to hold their hands over their children’s ears for half the movie. That doesn’t mean this movie isn’t entertaining – the cameos by Elton John who had several songs in the sound track along with John Denver were an unexpected treat! This had all the qualities of a great film but it gets lost in the two hour and 20-minute run time. (Twenty minutes shorter would have been a big help.) This film has some laugh out loud moments and edge–of-the-seat-action and I’m giving it a B- rating.

This movie has been given an R rating by the MPAA

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals. I rely more on a good story line than special effects. Visit my website at:
