If you enjoyed the first Kingsman film then there’s no choice, you have to see this.
The familiar comic-book ultra-violence is in. A preposterous James Bond-like plot is there. And it retains the expletive-ridden Kingsman irreverence.
Yet although it has the same spirit, it isn’t as much fun as the first one. It seems to go on a bit longer than I’d like but it’s hard to point to any particular pieces that I’d want cut to make that happen.
The Statesman stuff is well done with credible suspicion before they sort things out. The inevitable bar fight scene was familiar, amusing, and innovative.
I’d single out some great fun performances by Channing Tatum and Elton John that really added to the fun. Elton John is brilliant in this.
Well worth seeing.
