Kingsman The Golden Circle full movie – super secret agent sequel reaches new incredible level of absurdity. The sequel to Matthew Vaughn’s action caper ups the ante with a glorious cast involving Channing Tatum, Julianne Moore and sir Elton John. It might just be overflown of goodness.
James Bond? Who’s that? While 007 has been on extended break as a result of Daniel Craig’s reluctance, Taron Egerton’s fully less urbane spy Eggsy Unwin has succeeded in completely outdo him, with Matthew Vaughn’s sequel to his blockbuster 2015 comedy-thriller increasingly adding the elements that marked its predecessor out from the superspy pack: more star-included, more joyfully infamous, and setting new stakes of skyscraping silliness.
The Kingsman The Golden Circle full movie behind cult film The Room is brought to life with fondness and meticulous detail and shows a shocking transformation from the lead.
Kingsman The Golden Circle full movie’s a movie so comically outsized that it almost renders the previous one restrained by comparison. Whether that’s a good or bad thing relies on the audiences’ tolerance for death-defying deeds of illogicality, or action shots that stretch to extreme lengths. Indeed, Kingsman’s two-hour-and-20-minute running time could have been cut down into around a fifth, without losing a big of a deal. But, essentially, the visual cleverness that made the initial one seem so bracingly fresh stays, not to mention its affection for turning the Savile Row air blue – if you’ve ever hoped to see Elton John uttering four-letter words like a Gatling gun, all while dressing in an extraordinary feathered costume, then this might be the bizarre spy stuff for you.
A manic opening brawl sequence in a black cab, between Eggsy and his longtime rival Charlie, ups the ante instantly, a great deal of kicks, jabs and gravity-defying camerawork. Charlie, now threateningly equipped with a bionic arm, working for a new and improved major villain, Poppy Adams, portrayed by the one and only Julianne Moore.
As the soccer mom-like leader of malicious crime association the Golden Circle, Poppy rules over across the whole world of drug trade, which she controls from a jungle lair curiously decorated as a kitsch 50s utopia, including shining bowling alleys, diners and nail salons, but also, somewhat bewilderingly, robot killer dogs and an imprisoned Elton John.
If there were any doubts about Poppy’s devious goals, they’re soon tarnished as she holds an unpleasing meeting between a henchman and a meat grinder, one of various horrific scenes that easily grants Kingsman The Golden Circle full movie its grown-up rating. Poppy’s ultimate scheme is equally wicked: she has spiked the whole planetary supply of narcotics with a toxin that turns the user’s veins blue and will eventually kill them. There’s an antidote, for certain, but Poppy will only release it if the world’s leaders legalize all drugs and simultaneously hand her a radically profitable monopoly to rule over.
To let her plan smoothly succeed, Poppy carries out a pre-dealing strike on the Kingsman, wiping out a huge chunk of its network of secret agents, and forcing Eggsy and Merlin (Mark Strong) into find hide out at the home of their US counterpart, the Statesmen, a mass of whiskey-hawking American spies who have likely been introduced for the one and only reason of smashing in a hoard of available A-listers: Jeff Bridges, Narcos’s Pedro Pascal, Halle Berry and Channing Tatum.
Kingsman The Golden Circle full movie brings a huge turnover of cast members from the quite compact ensemble in the original movie and, for much of The Golden Circle’s first hour, there’s slightly lacking the crackling character dynamics that brought some flickers of realism in the middle of the ridiculous whizz-bangery. Most grievously missed is the connection between Eggsy and Colin Firth’s delightfully uncle-like mentor Harry Hart, who was thought to be dead by a bullet to the brain.
Of course, if you’ve seen even the slightest bit of the promotions for this movie you’ll know that Harry’s death wasn’t as permanent as first believed – Firth even showed up on the red carpet for The Golden Circle’s premiere. Let’s not give away the reasons for his comeback but enough to say they’re in keeping with the rest of Kingsman The Golden Circle full movie, a movie where the comical is the norm and notions of threat or danger are completely nowhere to be found. The extended, limb-cracking fight shots seem even more routine than the previous one, a procession of amazingly choreographed stunts that appear to be admired rather than to chew your fingernails to – though, let’s be honest, most feature at least one visual flourish (like Eggsy turning his suitcase into bullet-resisting armor) that draw out gasps at its boldness.
And that’s Kingsman The Golden Circle full movie in short. Every insensitive or tone-deaf moment – involving a sexual encounter between Eggsy and a socialite, portrayed by Poppy Delevingne, that at best seems completely misjudged and at worst a total betrayal of Eggsy’s witty but at the end of the day kind of sweet character – is paired by a wonderfully amusing one-liner or nugget of sharp-as-a-blade satire. (There’s a delicious nastiness to the concept that a mass poisoning of the world’s drugs would be covered by the US president as it allows him to let his nation’s drug users die and therefore win the “war on drugs”). Kingsman The Golden Circle full movie’s a movie that is completely maximalist, fully filled with gadgets, tricks, ideas both good and bad. An exhausting, yet stimulating joy ride.
