Movie Review: Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Details: Released in 2017. Under two hours and a half long. Stars Taron EgertonColin FirthMark Strong. Directed by Matthew Vaughn. Rated R.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle is the sequel to the action packed, often ridiculous Kingsman: The Secret Service. The prior film was a movie that wanted to modernize and give a more comedic, R rated take on the spy genre that movies like the James Bond franchise familiarized to audiences. The Golden Circle continues what the first film started by adding more action, more well-known names to the cast, and more jokes. If you like the first Kingsman movie, you will enjoy this. Minor spoilers ahead, but nothing that wasn’t in the trailer above or on a promotional movie poster.

Movie Review: Kingsman: The Secret Service (2014)

Details: Run time is over two hours. Comedic, action adventure movie starring Colin Firth, Taron Egerton, and Samuel L. Jackson.

Kingsman is a fun movie with a lot of action. Even with all that action, the only things that deserve the R rating it received was the constant use of profanity and one incredible action scene involving a church. Kingsman is largely a PG-13 movie.

Loved the large and recognizable cast, including one Mark Hamill. Samuel L. Jackson plays a weaker character this time. Michael Caine… plays Michael Caine.

Score: 7/10 Lots of humor and action. You probably shouldn’t bring young children with you. Otherwise, it is a great movie that pays homage and in some cases improves on the classic spy films that came before. Go watch it. It’s a good time.
