Kingsman: The Golden Circle | Average Guy Movie Review

When the Kingsman organisation is targeted by an unseen enemy, Eggsy (Taron Egerton) and Merlin (Mark Strong) look to the Statesman - their cousins from across the pond - for help. Much like Kingsman, Statesman is an independent intelligence agency operating under the guise of a whiskey distillery in Kentucky. Together they must figure out who is targetting them and why. At the same time Eggsy tries to maintain some form of normal life with his girlfriend Princess Tilde (Hanna Alstrom).



Director Matthew Vaughn returns to the world he created with Kingsman: The Secret Service. A parody of the classic James Bond movies, Kingsman was fun and cheesy with a modern twist. "Give me a far-fetched theatrical plot any day" as Harry Hart (Colin Firth) put it. Although the movie does raise an interesting moral question about the legality and taxation of alcohol and cigarettes while other drugs remain illegal, it seems Vaughn may have gone too far with the cheese this time round.
