Interviews with the Cast of Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Every Matthew Vaughn Movie Ranked From Worst To Best

Every Matthew Vaughn Movie Ranked From Worst To Best

And I think of things for instance like, The Guardians of the Galaxy or the new Thor movie, or indeed, Kingsman. And judging by the results of this sequel, "when" would have been the closing credits of the first film.

"Kingsman: The Golden Circle, the second in the surprise series of films based on a (highly recommended) comic book by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons, is a film plagued by many problems, the least of which is the baffling manner in which it treats its characters - they're strangely isolated and underused, the lot of them".

Given his passion for the franchise, it's entirely possible that Elton John may return for Kingsman 3 too. One is straight-up superhero fare, the other a parody of that concept, and the latter has more in common with the outlandish James Bond movies than the world of capes and spandex. The music legend plays himself in the movie, and he completely steals the show. Though I do appreciate Zack Snyder's efforts to humanize Superman, I would like to walk out of a Henry Cavill Superman movie feeling a bit more uplifted. More than that, it's dispiriting - a too campy, tonally schizophrenic barrage of idiotic plot twists, wasted star cameos, and over-the-top gags that aren't almost as entertaining as their creators think they are. But as miserable as Elton is living in Poppy's land, he isn't treated too terribly thanks to his talents.

That's why about 80% of the wild auto chase that kicks off the Kingsman sequel was shot with actual stunt cars and actors and stuntmen and not just done on green screen.

McMaster: 'We've all been involved in lengthy discussions' about Iran
If that happens, then Congress will get 60 days to decide whether nuclear related sanctions are to be reimposed on Iran or not. Trump reportedly would attempt to convince these nations to put pressure on Iran to bring it back to the negotiating table.

Over the last couple of months, via various wannabe-cool film-makers, I've heard a whole bunch of Bowie, T Rex and plenty of faux-ironic American hair metal thundering out of my local multiplex's sound-systems over the top of fight scenes and auto chases from Atomic Blonde to Baby Driver and back again. Channing Tatum say, as the cowboy agent with the Southern drawl and the ten gallon hat.

The collaboration gives filmgoers and fashion lovers a chance to shop for some of the wardrobe staples worn by main characters, including Harry (Colin Firth), Eggsy (Taron Egerton) and Merlin (Mark Strong). With the two organisations collaborating, Eggsy, in partnership with Agent Whiskey (Pedro Pascal), aims to find and destroy the mysterious crime group known as "The Golden Circle", which is led by the highly unstable Poppy Adams (Julianne Moore). And no, Greenwood does not impersonate Trump.

It is precisely here that Kingsman: The Golden Circle outdoes itself. Because it's the whole driving force of the first act and if you didn't know that scene it would've made the whole audience gasp. There is plenty to enjoy! Kingsman: The Golden Circle is Rated R for sequences of strong violence, drug content, language throughout and some sexual material.
