Kingsman: The Golden Circle movie review

To say I am disappointed in this movie would be a severe and drastic understatement. The first Kingsman movie was one of my favorite movies of 2014 and was everything I thought James Bond use to be in a modern way. It had spectacular acting, an over-the-top plot, amazing action, and good comedy. It was loved… What Golden Circle’s biggest mistake was is trying too hard to be Secret Service in almost every aspect. The plot is the exact same with only a few altered details. Big rich person releases something deadly in something that affects nearly the entire world and the good guys have to go get input a code in a computer in a secret lair in order to stop it and save the world. People loved the action sequence with Collin Firth backed by Free Bird so every action sequence is cut the exact same way with crazy music in the background. Now, there have been plenty of movies that play the imitation game and do just fine, but Secret Service was far and away better than Golden Circle. Samuel L Jackson was a better villain than Julianne Moore, bringing much more depth to the character. Action sequences were lacking and at times nearly impossible to watch, overdoing it with the shtick… Where this movie could have thrived was in the Statesman, acting as the American Kingsman counterpart. It promised to be fun and a new take, and promised Channing Tatum. False advertising at it’s worst! Channing Tatum was one of the prominent points in every trailer I watched for this movie and had maybe fifteen minutes of screen time before being conveniently taken away. Kingsman: The Golden Circle is nearly two and a half hours long, feels about three and a half, and needs to be an hour and a half. OR, just never made at all
