On the Statesmans' plane, a bottle of Born and Bred Vodka can be seen on the bar. Channing Tatum is the owner of this vodka brand. See more »
Harry's left eye was shot and he was given a pair of glasses with the left side darkened. But at Eggsy's wedding, Harry's glasses appear to have the right side darkened. This is because the scene shows Harry and Eggsy reflected in a mirror. See more »
[Eggsy enters the Kingsman briefing room]
Ah, Galahad! You're late. We were wondering if you'd had a second encounter with Charlie.
I wish. I'm looking forward to finishing him off.
[Eggsy sits down and puts on his glasses to greet the holographic projections of the other agents]
All right, gents.
[Merlin enters the room]
Merlin, come in. Galahad and Lancelot, please remain for Merlin's debrief. Everyone else, reconvene at 1900 hours.

The original Kingsman movie was a finely tuned comic-book adventure that presented OTT violence and astonishing action set pieces galore, all with a tongue-in-cheek sense of humour. For his sequel, director Matthew Vaughn attempts to give us more of the same, only bigger and louder, but fails on almost every level.
There's way too much CGI. From the opening car chase, to the ridiculous robot dogs, to the stupid cable car scene, The Golden Circle suffers from far too much unconvincing digital trickery.
The film panders to the American market by introducing the US equivalent of The Kingsman, Southern secret agents The Statesman. The first film possessed a wholly British charm; this one doesn't, and suffers greatly for it.
Julianne Moore. Superb actress, but totally miscast as the film's villain, drug baron Poppy.
Bringing back Colin Firth as a confused lepidopterist was a really bad move. From badass to befuddled butterfly collector. Why bother?
And what was the point of Halle Berry as wannabe Statesman Ginger? She is given absolutely nothing of interest to do throughout the entire film.
Worst of all, we have Sir Elton John, not in a brief cameo (THAT, I might have forgiven), but in several supposedly funny scenes so utterly diabolical that they simply have to be seen to be believed. Kingsman 3 had better be Elton free...
