“Kingsman: The Golden Circle” delivered everything audiences could have wanted in a new Kingsman movie and more. With amazing over the top action, as well as crazy futuristic weapons and technology this movie is a must see of the season.

The movie shows Eggsy (Taron Egerton), the suave, charming and amazingly skilled spy from the last film as he once again is put into the position of having to save the world from utter destruction.

This time he battles a blue rash that begins to appear on various people that have taken recreational drugs. It threatens to kill millions and millions of people around the world unless he can stop it.

However, in this installment of the Kingsman, the secret British agency receives help from their far less gentlemanly American counterparts, The Statesman.

When drug lord, Poppy (Julianne Moore), decides to take action against America’s war on drugs, the Kingsman and the Statesman try to stop her using the amazing weapons that we’ve come to expect from recent spy films like stun darts, umbrella shields, and crazy scanning glasses as well as physical skills that can put some acrobats to shame.

The Kingsman run into many obstacles on their way to saving the world like old enemies that have returned as well as some friends that also come back. The entire film was brought together even more by the amazing performance given to us by the talented Elton John, whose antics and witty lines make him a treat to watch on the big screen as he sings, yells and fights his way back into our hearts.

The fight scenes in the film are all exhilarating and fun to watch with upbeat and fun background music that will get your blood pumping.

Fights that include electrical whips, mechanical arms, and mad robot dogs will keep viewers on the edge of their seat. Each fight is edited together beautifully with quick moving camera angles and well placed slow-motion movements that make each fight in the movie just as intense as the last.

The acting in the film was surprisingly impressive in a spy movie spoof, with standout emotional and entertaining performances, especially from Egerton and Colin Firth. The two once again have a very fun relationship that is shown throughout the film.

Although, what’s a good spy film without an over the top villain who has the plan to kill millions? This role was given to Julianne Moore who performed it amazingly, giving an amazing performance as a crazy cannibalistic woman drug lord who just wants to be recognized for the genius she is.  

The only problem with the film was how much Channing Tatum seemed to be advertised to have a significant role in this film. Yet when it came down to it, he was only in a few parts and was immediately removed from the action soon after being introduced as the highly skilled and badass Statesman.

Overall this movie has amazing action, comedy and even pretty decent dramatic parts throughout. “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” has a little something for everyone. This movie is definitely a good movie to suggest for friends, family, and even a date.
