Kingsman The Golden Circle full movie has everything to offer — some bored Oscar winners, two shots showing death by meat grinder, Elton John stealing the spotlight in close-up — all but a good time.
It’s a little bit more strange and corrupted than the 2014 “Kingsman: The Secret Service”, and I watched it (which I would totally not recommend, even if a 141-minute running time means nothing to you) with the same stiff expression and 38-degree head-tilt that Halle Berry and daring Mark Strong bring to their “meanwhile, back at headquarters, staring at computer monitors” daily tasks in Kingsman The Golden Circle full movie. If the sequel resembles the way the original “Kingsman” did (grossing $414 million worldwide), then by the fourth movie the grimace passing for weary, firm shown on Colin Firth’s face will get a series for its own. “Kingsman: The Grimace of Lead.”
The Savile Row suit shop in London remains the flashiness front for the world-saving secret agent organization introduced in comic book version by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons. When we last seen Harry (Firth), he’d been shot right in the head and was believed to have been dead. His condition has improved in Kingsman The Golden Circle full movie since the previous film, but he’s lost his memory after the accident, and it takes some extreme method to get him back in the game alongside his under protection Eggsy (Taron Egerton).
Narratively the Kingsman The Golden Circle full movie is made of string, lint and the spit of a thousand ushers. Julianne Moore goes for a hysterical-cheerleader feel as the new film’s twisted ultra villain, Poppy, a drug lord with an obsessive love for ’50s kitsch and Elton John (as himself). Poppy infects millions of drug users with a lethal virus, found from deep inside the Cambodian jungle. Her robot killer dogs occasionally tear apart disobeying henchmen if they’re lucky enough not to be shoved into the meat grinder.
The Kingsman crew cooperates with its American equivalent, the men and apparently only woman (the brightly shining Ms. Berry) of the superspy organization Statesman. Taking place in Kentucky, where we last witnessed Harry take down a church full of white supremacists in the previous film’s second-most outstanding sequence. (The first featured President Barack Obama’s head exploding).
As to track down the antidote for the fatal virus, Eggsy and the Burt Reynolds look-alike spy Whiskey (Pedro Pascal) follow the girlfriend (Poppy Delevingne) of the bionic-armed super henchman (Edward Holcroft) to the Glastonbury music festival. It depends on Eggsy to hide a fingertip-mounted bugging device inside the groupie’s most private part – genitals. You’re not mistaking. I’d say that part, adding with with point-of-view scenes of the surveillance microbe sliding down the water slide at fast pace, doesn’t belong in a “Kingsman” film. But in the worst way, anything can happen in “Kingsman”.
I wish I found more of the sick-jokiness hilarious, in contrary to sleazy. I wish director Matthew Vaughn didn’t film every bloodlust actions with the same slo-mo technique. Theoretically, it’s an approximation of the initial illustrations’ graphic novel world. Practically speaking, it’s tons of bodies flying around and get sliced and bounced on pavement, or down a mountainside, to irritatingly tiny amount of cumulative effect.
For the record, Channing Tatum and Jeff Bridges do appear in Kingsman The Golden Circle full movie, a little bit here and a little bit there. Also, though the Americanization of the film’s storyline will surely be some of help at the box office, the film sells the highly exportable depiction of America as the most cruel, most rotten nation on Earth, judging by the minor roles who pop up to hassle our well-behaved British protagonists in a Kentucky honkatonk.
