Movie Review: Kingsman: The Golden Circle

kingsmangoldencircle

by Bob Garver

When we last left Eggsy (Taron Egerton), he had completed his transformation into a Kingsman; going from aimless slacker to dashing British secret agent. He had saved the world, avenged his murdered mentor Harry (Colin Firth), and even gotten a girl, granted not his likeable fellow agent Roxy (Sophie Cookson) but the Swedish princess Tilde (Hanna Alström). He’s still dating Tilde in “Kingsman: The Golden Circle,” which is funny in and of itself considering the controversial hookup from the first film did not seem like it would lend itself to long-term happiness. This franchise is all too happy to admit that it’s a James Bond ripoff, but the hero believing in lasting relationships is a major and welcome difference.

Eggsy and senior Kingsman Merlin (Mark Strong) soon find themselves having to team up with liquor-themed U.S. equivalent agency Statesman to take down the sweetest, perkiest, most ruthless drug lord in all of Cambodia. Her name is Poppy (Julianne Moore) and she’s going to get a lot of comparisons to Martha Stewart, but I can’t help but see her more as my boss, candy magnate Dylan Lauren. Like many supervillains, Poppy kills a hapless henchman in an early scene, and it’s maybe the sickest version of this type of scene ever done. So why would anyone want to work for her? For once we get an answer. In addition to what I’m sure is good money, there’s another perk in the form of Sir Elton John. He’s at Poppy’s disposal to perform private concerts for her and her men. She scooped him up in the midst of the mass celebrity kidnapping from the first movie. This means that original villain Valentine wanted Iggy Azalea but not Sir Elton, good riddance to him.

Eggsy and Merlin mingle with the Statesmen, including leader Champaign (Jeff Bridges), analyst Ginger Ale (Halle Berry), cocky agent Tequila (Channing Tatum), sharper agent Whisky (Pedro Pascal, unfairly overlooked in a lot of the film’s advertising), and Harry. Yes, Eggsy’s supposedly-dead mentor. The Statesmen have been keeping an amnesia-afflicted Harry at their facility, as they’ve discovered a cure for getting shot in the head. The bad news is that we have to go through a frustrating recovering-from-amnesia storyline, the good news is that we have Colin Firth back. On a side note, I think this movie has a few too many characters get blown up, could Statesman maybe find a cure for that for the next movie?

So much about this movie is fun: the action, the banter, Elton John in fight with robot dogs. But there a few rough edges that prevent the movie from being as enjoyable as it could be. The first is that Eggsy, like Bond, has a tendency to get minor characters killed and not care about them. I know he can’t go to pieces over everyone who dies on his mission, but there’s an instance where he signs someone’s death warrant just to fleetingly satisfy his own ego. I found it hard to root for him after that.

Overall though, I had a blast at “Kingsman: The Golden Circle.” The action is delightfully overthe-top and I laughed at just about everything the movie threw at me. I’ll admit that it’s not quite as heartfelt as the first one, but I feel the need to go against the apparent consensus here. I say “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” makes for a royally good time.

Grade: B

“Kingsman: The Golden Circle” is rated R for sequences of strong violence, drug content, language throughout, and some sexual material. Its running time is 141 minutes.

    Good blog post. Things i would like to bring about is that laptop memory should be purchased when your computer can’t cope with what you do along with it. One can set up two random access memory boards of 1GB each, as an example, but not certainly one of 1GB and one having 2GB. One should always check the maker’s documentation for one’s PC to ensure what type of memory is necessary.

  39. Corporate Computer Recycling berkshire

    Thanks for sharing your ideas in this article. The other factor is that any time a problem takes place with a computer system motherboard, persons should not take the risk connected with repairing the item themselves for if it is not done right it can lead to permanent damage to the entire laptop. In most cases, it is safe just to approach any dealer of a laptop for the repair of its motherboard. They will have technicians who definitely have an expertise in dealing with laptop motherboard challenges and can have the right diagnosis and carry out repairs.

  40. free computer recycling oxford

    A few things i have seen in terms of computer system memory is that there are specs such as SDRAM, DDR and many others, that must go with the features of the motherboard. If the computer’s motherboard is very current while there are no operating system issues, upgrading the memory literally usually takes under a couple of hours. It’s one of the easiest computer system upgrade types of procedures one can imagine. Thanks for sharing your ideas.

  41. IT Asset recycling maidenhead

    Thanks for the points you have discussed here. One more thing I would like to convey is that laptop memory demands generally rise along with other advances in the engineering. For instance, if new generations of processor chips are made in the market, there’s usually a corresponding increase in the size and style preferences of both the computer memory along with hard drive room. This is because the software program operated through these processor chips will inevitably boost in power to take advantage of the new technological innovation.

Yet another thing I would like to say is that personal computer memory specifications generally increase along with other developments in the technology. For instance, if new generations of processor chips are made in the market, there is usually a corresponding increase in the scale demands of both the laptop or computer memory in addition to hard drive space. This is because the software program operated by these cpus will inevitably surge in power to make use of the new engineering.

    Thanks for your tips. One thing I have noticed is that often banks along with financial institutions know the dimensions and spending practices of consumers plus understand that the majority of people max out there their real credit cards around the breaks. They properly take advantage of this kind of fact and begin flooding a person’s inbox and snail-mail box using hundreds of no-interest APR credit card offers just after the holiday season comes to an end. Knowing that when you are like 98% in the American public, you’ll jump at the opportunity to consolidate credit card debt and shift balances towards 0 annual percentage rates credit cards.
