As someone who loved the first Kingsman movie, I will try to be unbiased as I review this sequel… ‘Try’ being the operative word.
The basic plot is that a year after saving the world once, Eggsy (Taron Egerton), has to do it all over again. This time, from the drug lord Poppy (Julianne Moore), who has poisoned her supply of drugs with a substance that has some quite devastating side effects. With the help of Merlin (Mark Strong), the slowly recovering Harry Hart (Colin Firth), some secret gadgets and some pretty impressive action sequences, they eventually do. How, I hear you ask? I guess you’ll have to watch and find out.
This action-packed, fast-paced film is exactly what I was hoping it would be. With some tear-jerking scenes, some edge-of-your-seat scenes and some scenes that make you want to get up out of your seat and save the world, this film is worth a watch, as can be seen by their 7.5/10 rating on IMDb, and a 69% audience approval on Rotten Tomatoes.
In my opinion (here, if you can’t tell, is where it gets quite biased), this sequel is just as good as the original, and keeps you interested through its entire two-and-a-half hours.
The DVD is out in a couple of weeks, on December 12th. Just in time for Christmas…
(And, PS, it’s a 15…)
