Story

After the hugely successful 2014 spy flick "Kingsman: The Secret Service", director Matthew Vaughn has returned to silver screens 3 years laterwith its sequel, " Kingsman: The Golden Circle". While the first part received positive reviews and remarkable commercial success thanks to its content filled with stylishly shot action sequences, dark humor and the stunning musical score, the promos of the second part promise yet another interesting visual treat. AP Herald presents you the exclusive first on the net review of this sequel that releases tomorrow.

While the first part was about Eggsy Unwin joining the Kingsman Intelligence organization, and saving the world from megalomaniac Richmond Valentine's neurological wave broadcast, this sequel begins with Eggsy owning the title of "Galahad" taken over from his mentor Harry Hart, and living with Crown Princess Tilde of Sweden. One day, Eggsy is attacked by Charlie Hensketh, an ex Kingsman, who lost his arm and vocal chord during Valentine incident. Though Charlie escapes from Eggsy, his severed cybernetic arm hacks through Kingsman servers.

As Eggsy spends time with Tilde in Sweden, the Kingsman headquarters gets destroyed in a missile attack, killing all the agents in Britain. The only surviving Kingsman agents Eggsy and Merlin head to an American organization Statesman and they get to know that Harry is still alive, but has lost memories of the past.

The Statesman head Champagne briefs Eggsy about a terrorist organization named Golden Circle, and they decide to track them following Charlie's ex-girlfriend Clara.Meanwhile, Poppy Adams, the head of a pharmaceutical company reveals that she has laced all the drugs with a toxin that generates rashes on people who consume it, later causing death.

While the American president gets all the affected users quarantined, Eggsy, Harry, and Whiskey from the Statesman set out to the antidote factory in Italy, and later to capture Poppy Adams. Were the Kingsmen able to capture Poppy alive, and save millions of lives by releasing the antidotes, and what happened to Tilde is what Kingsman: Golden Circle is all about.

Star Performance

The movie completely belongs to Julianne Moore, who plays Poppy with consummate ease, and shines with her villainy. As the mad woman who plots to destroy the world, she shines, stealing the thunder from her costars everytime she makes an appearance. Taron Egerton continues from where he left in Kingsman: Secret Service, and impresses with his stylish, engaging screen presence.


Colin Firth is perfect for his part as Harry who's lost his memories, while Channing Tatum makes his presence felt every time he appears on screen, despite starring in a minuscule role. Halle Berry is miscast in an extremely insignificant role, while Jeff Bridges as Champagne is more of an extended cameo, and almost a humorous reflection of his cowboy acts in various flicks.

Techinical Team

Music by Henry Jackman and Matthew Margeson blends well with the high-octane action sequences and the stylized violence portrayed in the movie, while George Richmond's cinematography captures the adrenaline pumping chase sequences, and the stunning action scenes to perfection. Eddie Hamilton's editing could have been taut, as the movie suffers from several drags in his 2 hours 21 minutes extensive runtime.


Though Director Matthew Vaughn has opted for a predictable plot filled with several new characters that don't get to play significant roles, besides also opting for an antagonist, miles behind Samuel L Jackson's powerful role in the first part, he compensates for these minor glitches with an exciting screenplay laced with dark humor throughout, He perfectly plays with his cast, as he very well makes up for the miscast team of Statesman agency including Jeff Bridges by adding more power to the Kingsman duo Colin Firth and Tarong Egerton, and establishing the bond between them. Though the romantic track between Eggsy played by Taron and Tilde played by Hanna Alstrom begins well, it turns cheesy with sexual overtones overshadowing the romance at times. 

Analysis

Despite lagging the imaginative screenplay and the creative genius exhibited by Matthew Vaughn in Kingsman: Secret Service, the Golden circle engages and entertains thanks to the persistent humor, and the goosebumps action sequences perfectly presented on screen.All said, Kingsman Golden Circle has double the fun, double the action, and double the kickass moments than the previous installment, making it a worthy successor, and an inducer for many more exciting flicks from the franchise to follow.
