In this second part of the Kingsman’s films, directed by Matthew Vaughn, the world is threatened by a new organization named “The Golden Circle”. While, the Kingsman’s headquarters were destroyed, Eggsy and Merlin are forced to unite with another spy agency in order to save the world.
I usually always find sequels to be a failure and even though, there’s nothing surprising in the new Kingsman, I think it is an epic success.
I am going to start this review by talking about the story: like I mentioned above, there’s nothing surprising in the new Kingsman, the plot is basic and deja-vu. Nevertheless, the movie is still as amusing and fun as the first one and I just love the sarcasm in the film [I laughed so hard during the whole film]. Furthermore, there is no way on earth that you can’t appreciate the characters; they are so lovable, enjoyable, memorable and they make the movie 10 times better, especially the new villain, Poppy.
Talking about Poppy, I think Julianne Moore did an amazing job as a psychopath; I was so impressed by her performance as the villain, in fact, Poppy is my new favorite character!!!
Now let’s talk about the cinematography/production design: the visuals of this film are very dynamic with a really colorful production design, saturated image and energetic camera movement. Each shot is very systematic and perfect [Like the Kingsman, duh] and, in general, the cinematic technique is very modern and crazy: literally, the camera goes from top view to low angle to close up in one shot only. I think this type of technique makes the fight scenes way more intense and fun to watch and it suits with the theme of the film [agents with really fancy, original and high-tech weapons]
I also like how the director chose to differentiate the three parties through colors reflecting the characters’ personalities: the Kingsman agency is represented with a luxurious, fancy and colorful production design. The American spy agency is represented with a more old western kind of production design, amber being the dominant color and Poppy’s agency is represented with a 60s sort of production design [bright and red colours].
Here are some still shots from the film:
Before ending this review, I just want to mention that the soundtrack is very motivating and dramatizes the scenes accordingly. On top of that, I really love Kingsman’s theme song.
In conclusion, I really advice you to watch “Kingsman: The Golden Circle”, it is a very entertaining movie and you definitely will not regret watching it.

It was nice to hear that as a second film it held its own and didn’t flounder. Often second movies can do that, though there are countless exceptions to that. Nicely written review.
Totally agree and thank you 😊

Really enjoyed the first one so if this is more of the same I’m looking forward to seeing it! Was kind of iffy on it as a few reviews I read gave the impression that it was a stinker so I’m glad to read a review that says otherwise. Guess I’ll have to see for myself 🙂 Thanks!

You heard my plea when I asked you to write a review of Kingsman: The Golden Circle. And here you wrote it fantastically and outstanding. 🙂 I love this. I’m going to watch this movie first thing tomorrow. Thank you for hyping it up for me. I love the Kingsman a lot. 🙂
Hahahah always ❣️ thank you very much, i really appreciate it. I love the kingsman too hahah. Enjoy the movie ☺️❣️
I just watched the movie a couple of days ago and just like the first movie, I also enjoyed this one! I like the humour, charisma of the characters (and the characters themselves), and the comic book-like effects where the fight scenes are focused on and sometimes in slow motion. I’m glad there are positive reviews of the movie like yours. 🙂
Yes totally agree with you, the cinematic technique is very comic-like!! Haha thank youu ☺️☺️
Did you notice that Harry with the digital hand was the same actor who was Harry in Spider-Man?
