Kingsman: The Golden Circle (15)

Action, Adventure, Comedy

When their headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage, the Kingsman's journey leads them to the discovery of an allied spy organization in the US. These two elite secret organizations must band together to defeat a common enemy.

The critical consensus

As ultraviolent as the first film, and as ultrasmutty, The Golden Circle will leave the Kingsfans grinning, even if its characters have less growing to do this time around.

****(*)Dan Jolin, Empire Online, 18/09/2017

Fun, fleeting entertainment if you’re after more of the same, but fails to carve out any fresh ground.

***(*)(*)Matt Maytum, Total Film, 18/09/2017

An exhausting, exhilarating watch.

***(*)(*)Gwilym Mumford, The Guardian, 19/09/2017

As sequels go, it's fair to say that The Golden Circle lacks the novelty of the first film and doesn't have quite as much in the way of charm, but there's enough here to ensure that fans won't be disappointed.

***(*)(*)Matthew Turner, The List, 19/09/2017

Bloated, artistically impotent and utterly bereft of ideas.

Adam Woodward, Little White Lies, 19/09/2017

Enormous energy is expended but it still feels at the end as if the filmmakers are going around in exactly the same circles as at the beginning.

***(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 21/09/2017

The overblown sequel to the first Kingsman film pays too much attention to a third outing of the franchise, sacrificing the original’s anarchic charm in the process.

**(*)(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 21/09/2017

Superficially entertaining but disappointingly hollow beneath all the exhausting razzle-dazzle.

***(*)(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 22/09/2017

The whole film is a knowing sneer of a movie that shrugs off its plot holes along with a particularly unsavoury attitude to violence and a tendency to use female characters as the decorative punchline to jokes.
