Trivia

The original cut of the movie had total runtime of 3 hours and 40 minutes. The movie had so many added scenes during production that FOX even asked director Matthew Vaughn if he wanted to split the movie into two separate movies. Vaughn shot that idea down and edited it down to 2 hours and 21 minutes. The movie is expected to have an extended cut on Blu Ray. See more »

Goofs

The film fails to explain how a virus would survive being burned when certain of the carrier drugs are being ingested--when smoking amphetamines or crack cocaine, for example, as one character does. See more »

Vaughn and Goldman cross the pond for more of the same.
8 October 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

You would probably need to be living under a rock not to know that "Kingsman: The Golden Circle" is the follow-up film to Matthew Vaughn and Jane Goldman's highly successful 2015 offering "Kingsman: The Secret Service": a raucous, violent and rude entry into the spy-caper genre. And the sequel is more of the same: why mess with a crowd- pleasing formula?

The fledgling agent Eggsy (Taron Egerton ("Eddie the Eagle"), curiously called "Eggy" at various points in the film for reasons I didn't understand) is now the new "Galahad" following the demise in the first film of the original, played by Colin Firth ("Magic in the Moonlight", "Bridget Jones' Baby"). But just as he's getting into his stride the whole Kingsman organisation, now headed by Michael Gambon ("Harry Potter") as Arthur , is ripped apart by an evil drugs cartel called "The Golden Circle" headed by smiling but deadly Poppy (Juliane Moore, "Still Alice").

Eggsy and Lancelot (Mark Strong, "Miss Sloane") in desperation turn to Statesman – the US equivalent organisation – and together with some surprising allies set out to defeat the evil plot to poison all casual drug users.

Subtle this film certainly is not, featuring brash and absurdly unrealistic action scenes that are 90% CGI but – for me at least – enormous fun to watch. As with the first film (and I'm thinking of the grotesquely violent church scene here) the action moves however from 'edgy' to over-the-top/offensive at times. The 'burger scene' and (particularly) the 'Glastonbury incident' are the standout moments for all the wrong reasons. You can only hope a stunt vagina was used for this scene, else Poppy Delavigne (older sister of Cara) is going to find it very hard to find credible future work. One can only guess what tasteful interlude is being planned for Kingsman 3 – – a prostate- based tracker perhaps?

The film works best when the core team of Taron Egerton, Mark Strong and Colin Firth (yes, Colin Firth!) are together. Jeff Bridges ("Hell or High Water"), Channing Tatum ("Foxcatcher") and Halle Berry ("Monster's Ball") all turn up as key members of 'Statesman' – adding star power but not a lot else – together with Pedro Pascal ("The Great Wall") as 'Whiskey', who I expected to be someone equally famous behind the moustache but wasn't!

There's also a very entertaining cameo from a star (no spoilers from me) whose foul-mouthed tirades I found very funny, and who also has the funniest line in the film (playing off one of the most controversial elements of the first film). It's fair to say though that others I've spoken to didn't think this appearance fitted the film at all.

Julianne Moore makes for an entertaining – if less than credible – villain, as does Bruce Greenwood ("Star Trek: Into Darkness") as a barely disguised Trump. None of the motivations of the bad 'uns however support any scrutiny whatsoever: this is very much a "park your brain at the door" film.

I really shouldn't enjoy this crass, brash, brainless movie fast-food… and I know many have hated it! But my guilty secret is that I really did like it – one of the best nights of unadulterated escapist fun I've had since "Baby Driver". Classy it's certainly NOT, but I enjoyed this just as much as the original.
