[tps_title]Kingsman: The Golden Circle[/tps_title]
The first film was really a hell of a surprise, and you have to give a lot of credit to Matthew Vaughn’s ability to stick to what he believes in, even when that might mean a film that risks bombing and/or spinning out of control into awfulness. You also have to give credit to Taron Egerton for filling out a role in a way that it’s hard to imagine he could pull off, even while you’re watching him do it.
The second installment adds some new characters (and has Jeff Bridges and Channing Tatum attached), and apparently connects us with American spies in order to broaden the world.
If you can scrounge together the hope that Vaughn might learn from what was best about the first, and what might have been improved upon, and put together something that is just as fun and filled with comic-sensibility heroics, this should be a film that people don’t stop talking about for months.
