CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – Great Britain’s lethal tailors protect the world from the latest global threat in “Kingsman: The Golden Circle.”
The original was such fun, we naturally insisted on a sequel. Rookie Taron Egerton is now a full-fledged Kingsman, hob-knobbing the upper crust explaining his affiliation with the arsenal masquerading as a tailor shop.
“Kingman: the Golden Circle” was tailor made for action fans who appreciate a touch of satire to keep the story from going flat. Egerton’s come of age as the well-dressed assassin keeping a low profile.
A pleasant surprise to find the usually stone-faced, inexpressive Tatum Channing unleashing some dry personality as an eccentric Indiana Jones style character.
All the characters play it tongue in cheek to the hilt. Although the running time of 2 hours and 20 minutes may seem excessive, they fill the time with plenty of off-the-wall excitement.
The wonderful Julianne Moore generates just enough sly sadism to steal the picture as a James bond style villain. Kingsman patriarch Colin Firth returns to prove they can’t keep a suave, sophisticated, snappy dressing assassin down too long.
So prepare to enjoy yourself with this tailor made comic adventure that Becker outfits with 3 stars.
All’s well with the screwball world of the Kingsman….
