Kingsman: The Golden Circle is the sequel to Mathew Vaughn's modern spy film. The Kingsman again find themselves facing a world ending threat that forces them to seek help from their US Allies.
Critical Review: Kingsman The Golden Circle suffers from a lot of the same mistakes that most modern sequels succumb to. The story isn't very memorable due to it being very stuffed with characters that are underdeveloped, a plot that tries to "out epic" the previous, and some elements that delve really far into the unbelievable. However, the returning characters really own their parts and the choreography and cinematography create some really imaginative action sequences.
Entertainment Value: Even though the story and new characters come a little thin they take a backseat to the main selling point, the hyper stylized action. In that area it definitely delivers. Giving action fans some really exciting sequences, some funny scenes, and another great soundtrack. Overall, it's a fun ride, but just didn't pack the same punch the original did.
Bottom Line: A really fun action flick that didn't meet the high expectations the original set.

I don't think giving one score to a film is fair. There's a lot of aspects that go into making a film. Some are made as an art form trying to convey a message, others are simply entertainment, and some attempt to be both, So I want to answer the main questions that any kind of filmgoer would want to hear in a friendly conversation. My reviews are meant to be simple, quick, and very informal :).
