Three years later, “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” picks up exactly where its predecessor left off – with excessively artistic violence and an over-the-top plot.
Matthew Vaughn’s follow-up to 2014’s “Kingsman: The Secret Service” follows Eggsy (Taron Egerton), the now fully trained super-spy, as he tries to save the world again. Only this time, the British-based Kingsman agency is destroyed, forcing Eggsy and his few remaining comrades to team up with Statesman, their American counterpart.
This American twist adds a whole new element to the franchise, introducing new spies played by Channing Tatum, Halle Berry and Jeff Bridges; yet “The Golden Circle” remains a movie we’ve already seen.
Once again, Eggsy must save the world from a psycho who’s secretly developed a way to kill millions of people around the world for her own personal benefit.
Sounds familiar, doesn’t it? Maybe because that’s exactly what Samuel L. Jackson did in the first one.
