You'd sprint in, grab everything you wanted, and fall down from exhaustion at the end. However, this time the audience are anticipating more from the new release.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle is one of the most anticipated releases of the month. They've crafted a film filled with excitement. This time, though, he and his team are forced to team up with the Statesman, a similar spy organisation based in the United States.
The film's big bad is Poppy (Julianne Moore), the seemingly folksy but quite vicious head of a multi-billion-dollar drug cartel, The Golden Circle.
Sounds simple enough, right? Like, a lot of ground to cover. Or, you know, Colin (Firth) could become Arthur (...) or new characters could come in.
IGN critic Jim Vedjvoda enjoyed the film, finding it "great" and giving it a solid 8.5 out of 10. Since action is the primary focus, there's some nifty editing and camerawork that makes it much easier to follow, reminiscent of the insane chapel sequence in the "The Secret Service".

Dollar Climbs as North Korea, Hurricane Woes Wane: Markets Wrap
Royal Caribbean Cruises jumped $3.88, or 3.3 percent, to $121.33 and American Airlines gained $1.27, or 2.9 percent, to $44.87. Goldman Sachs' ( GS.N ) 1.8 percent rise led the Dow higher, followed by insurer Travelers ( TRV.N ), which rose 2.94 percent.
The film is directed by Matthew Vaughn and it also stars Colin Firth, Halle Berry, Mark Strong, Julianne Moore, Elton John and Jeff Bridges. That's A LOT of star power and, unfortunately, only two or three of them get their full due. Of course, that means the two spy groups who must save the world from this misguided evil nutcase. That's all I'll say about that, but boy did I have fun.
For instance, there's a completely unnecessary scene at Glastonbury Festival that feels like it was added just to raise the movie's shock factor.
That last name mentioned bears a bit more explanation as well. Almost every scene in The Golden Circle furthers the plot and deepens its characters while both subverting genre expectations and building its own mythology. The legendary musician is incredible in the screen time that he's been given. But Firth's return is also a ideal example of Kingsman's simultaneous strengths and faults.
Are you excited to see Harry Hart Return? Very rarely does a scene only work in one dimension and that's a testament to just how good the script by Jane Goldman and Matthew Vaughn is. The constant barrage of information, action, and characters keep the film moving and entertaining. You don't outstay your welcome with these things.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle takes us to the extremes at time, but so much fun was had during every minute of the film, even if ran longer than it should have.
Todd McCarthy gave a positive review for the film, complementing the director for his superb use of the cast and humor and forecasted good things for the franchise.
