It also introduced the Kingsman, a covert British spy agency that would have kicked James Bond out for ungentlemanly conduct.

Chris Van Vliet: "Did you know when you were making the first movie that there would be a second one?" However, Firth recently revealed to Screen Rant that discussions about bringing him back for Kingsman: The Golden Circle were already underway before the first film was released.

After the events in the first movie, Eggsy (Taron Egerton) is now a full-fledged member of the Kingsman, living the high-flying life as both a spy and the boyfriend of Swedish princess Tilde (Hanna Alstrom).

"Despite a whole lot of bet-hedging, there's still a lot to enjoy about Kingsman: The Golden Circle, including a very hilarious extended cameo and some suitably bombastic set pieces".

Magic Mike is getting ready for a table top performance.

Holed up in a 50s-styled base in the Cambodian jungle, Poppy likes to prove her evil mettle by stuffing anyone who displeases her into a meat grinder. Vaughn and 20th Century Fox are keen to ride the Kingsman hype into the stratosphere, drawing plans to make one more Kingsman sequel with Kingsman 3 before branching off into individual character spin-offs. The Rocket Man singer, who plays himself in the movie, admitted to reporters at the world premiere in London on Monday (18Sep17) that he was offered a part in the first film, Kingsman: The Secret Service, but he declined. But no matter how one feels about the marketing ploy (or price tag), there's no denying that the GlenDronach Kingsman Edition 1991 is an estimable scotch. Julianne Moore in particular is deliciously diabolical as Poppy, who's like a Stepford Wife with the ambition of Martha Stewart.

"It's never clear whether Kingsman: The Golden Circle is supposed to be more than the sum of these fights, or whether it's just marking time by poking at raw political nerves in between".

Instead, Vaughn gleefully revels in the chance to dial up the bombast and ludicrousness. The Golden Circle is less amusing, more misogynist, dumber and meaner. A couple touches of surprising emotion early and later on give the sequel what it needs to be worthwhile, assuming moviegoers can leave logic at the door and really just have a good time with the most outrageous film of the year, and the most stylish. Our heroes need to save the day, but the odds are stacked against them when their resources are taken away.

And don't get me started about how criminally underused Tatum is in the movie.

"The Golden Circle" is all about dilution, spinning off exciting ideas and storylines into further complications that take it further and further from its best bits.
