Managing to be even more ridiculous than its predecessor, Kingsman: The Golden Circle sadly lacks the surprise factor of Matthew Vaughn’s 2014 breath of fresh (sometimes wonderfully foul) air. Unable to repeat the apprenticeship aspect of The Secret Service, its sequel kicks off with formerly-wayward youth Eggsy now a fully-fledged Kingsman agent, and attempts to fill the void left by a relatable underdog tale with overstuffed trans-Atlantic adventure. Uniformly enjoyable viewing, if seldom truly thrilling, the gags come at a clip, Vaughn’s action sequences remain distinctively staged, and callbacks to the prior installment earn solid chuckles.

Extreme fun.

Loud, action-packed and over-the-top; it's a whole lot of entertaining fun.

Kingsman on steroids, but not in a good way

I was keen to see this film as I really enjoyed ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service”. Unfortunately, I was disappointed. I think they took the idea too far in this film. It’s incredibly far-fetched, but it wasn’t too difficultto suspend reality and focus on the scenario. Unfortunately, the scenario was utterly ludicrous. There were some great moments (e.g....

SH1T.

This movie is sh1t. It's really sh1t. I had zero expectations, but it is really, really bad. In fact, the only remotely enjoyable part was when an old guy sh1t his pants - that's right - A joke about sh1t. If I could rate this film any lower, I would. Don't see it. It's sh1t.

Stupid made more stupider

The predecessor was ridiculous - the Golden Circle goes beyond that. So much so I was considering walking out. I only stayed to enjoy bag of sweets and coke

It is all aggressively stylised, abusively fast-paced and ear-bleedingly loud, relying so heavily on CGI that nothing - not one thing - seems to correspond to the real world.

Fun, fleeting entertainment if you’re after more of the same, but fails to carve out any fresh ground.

This crazily overlong and tiresome follow-up doesn't seem to have the first idea what to do with itself - not least when it comes to its much-vaunted all-star cast, the majority of whom are barely even in it.

It is the endearing cast of Kingsman: The Golden Circle who elevate what might otherwise be merely a three-star, mediocre, cashing-in sequel...

Has moments of exhiliration, but feels a little too in love with itself to remain objective enough to know when to stop.

Considerable shrewdness is applied to the conception and execution of nearly every scene to make this old spy stuff feel fresh, which it mostly does.

As ultraviolent as the first film, and as ultrasmutty, The Golden Circle will leave the Kingsfans grinning, even if its characters have less growing to do this time around.
