Kingsman: The Golden Circle was boy-o-boy long. Over two hours long of events all summing up to the very ending you will expect and like the first movie, Kingsman: The Secret Service (2014) it had an additional death that makes you wonder why the writers are so hell bent on killing characters people love in this franchise.
Before we get to the plot of this exciting movie, I recall when writing the review for Kingsman: The Secret Service (2014), that it was not impossible for the writers to awake the dead and they proved so using a gel.
Colin Firth’s character Harry Hart was resurrected and his presence in the movie was much welcomed into a movie that started with a huge bang and continued with such excitement for pretty much 75% of the movie runtime.

The movie this time was focused on drugs. With Poppy Adams (Julianne Moore) being a drug baron who wanted to drugs to become legalized in the world economy and their earnings taxed.
Her plan was being dragged back by the Kingsman and she decided to take out the whole organization, but Eggsy / Galahad (Taron Egerton) and Merlin (Mark Strong) survived and decided to follow the Doomsday protocol. A protocol set in place for such a time in which the secret service was taken down. The protocol led them to the Statesman, a secret American organisation (like the Kingsman) posing as a Bourbon whiskey distillery in Kentucky.

There, they discover that Harry survived Valentine's gunshot a year earlier, but is suffering from amnesia.

With help from their American counterpart, the surviving Kingsman must find a way to take down Poppy before she kills millions.

I enjoyed the movie very much and was amazed even though we did not have the memorable bad guy in Samuel L. Jackson that we loved, we had a weird cannibal like one in Julianne Moore.

Another kind of downer in this production was the introduction of many new characters, who happen to be A-list actors, all a member of the American version of the Kingsman, Stateman.
The movie didn’t need too many A-list actors when in the end the focus was back to the original three in the first Kingsman movie, I guess the producers were keen on making sure that people had a face they liked and would for that reason go see the movie.
Great movie, hope it makes enough money for a third part, but I do hope the producers do not make a very long movie next time.
