'Kingsman: The Golden Circle' Picks Up $3.4 Million on Thursday

Movie review: 'Kingsman' sequel lacks punch and vibe of first film

There, in her own retro diner, she stuffs Keith Allen into a meat grinder, forces a drugged Elton John to play the piano in her theatre and lays down her big plan.

Unlike the previous installment, no, there is no credits scene in Kingsman: The Golden Circle; at least, there wasn't in the version previewed for critics.

Skyline in partnership with TNL Radio and Scope Cinemas will also host the first ever official double-feature fan screening to be held in Sri Lanka on 20 September. Now its hotly anticipated sequel, The Golden Circle, follows firmly in the footsteps of its predecessor, for better and worse, whilst expanding Vaughn's eccentric spy universe. Also, Harry Hart (Colin Firth), who was Eggsy's mentor in the first movie, is resurrected for no good reason, there's a weird Burt Reynolds cosplayer named Whiskey (Pedro Pascal) and tons of other convoluted impediments to enjoyment.

Paul may not have as many cool suits, gadgets and guns as the brilliant duo of Mark Strong (Merlin) and Taron Egerton (Eggsy), but he still managed to get some top secret information from the pair. Your favorite characters are back as well as some fresh new faces such as Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and many more!

"I think there's a story in my head which will be finished by the end of the next one", Vaughn explained to CinamaBlend.

Picking up where the first film left off, Eggsy is now a full-fledged Kingsman secret agent and in love with Princess Tilde. Polly's missile attack wiped out all of Kingsman's headquarters, resources, and most of its agents. A definite theme of the movie is how Eggsy balances his two worlds and the film makes sure the audience knows it. With no other choice, Eggsy has to head over to the United States and seek help from the Statesman - the American version of Kingsman. I did the scene, and he was still looking down. As it turns out, J.B. accompanied the rest of Kingsman cast to the London premiere of the forthcoming sequel Kingsman: The Golden Circle, and what's more decked himself to the nines for the occasion.

As far as I've deciphered, the point of Bond movies - and all of the spy franchises they begat, including Kingsman - is that they're supposed to be fun, supposed to revel in how being an worldwide man of mystery is just so cool. Poppy's main evil plan isn't even set into motion until more than an hour into the movie, and while it's almost as loopy as the villain's plan in The Secret Service, it sort of fizzles out toward the end, with a very similar twist (along with some muddled social commentary).

While the film incessantly jumbles you around to keep you entertained, it feels like more of a grandiose set-up for what's to come, which might just be Tatum in a Kingsman bowler hat.
