Fox originally planned to have the world premiere of the movie in New York on September 12, but canceled it to help out with the Hurricane Harvey relief. Instead of holding the event, they donated the money budgeted for the Kingsman soiree to the Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Harvey Relief telethon that same night. See more »
Eggsy tells Harry that he knows that Kingsman agents shouldn't be in relationships, but in the first Kingsman movie, Harry teaches Eggsy in his home office that a Kingsman's name should only be in the paper 3 times: when they are born, when they get married, and when they die. Also, Eggsy's dad was married to his mom at his time of training. Why would he have been recruited if agents aren't allowed relationships? See more »
[Charlie enters Poppy's Theater, wearing landmine equipment]
You're late. Why are you still wearing that?
Until you get rid of the perimeter landmines, I'll keep wearing the suit, thank you very much.
Scaredy-cat. Shut up and sit down. Let's go!
[Poppy turns on the stage lights, revealing Elton John]
'Crocodile Rock', please.

Hey, hey, Elton. Language. Okay, well, as fabulous as your catalogue is, I think I want to hear some Gershwin.

Entertaining, but never quite reaches the heights of its predecessor
'Kingsman: The Golden Circle' has everything fans of the first film could have possibly wanted and more. Action, humour and special effects are all in abundance and visually it's very impressive. The plot is decent, especially for a sequel, but it never quite reaches the same level as the first film. The British/American theme works well though and there are some very funny cultural jokes and references.
As someone who loved the first 'Kingsman', I'm pleased that the sequel didn't disappoint. It remains true to everything that made the first film such a success, including taking some big risks and thinking out of the box. The end result is an imperfect and at times messy film, but a rewarding and highly entertaining one nonetheless. 'The Golden Circle' is much better than expected but just not quite on the same level as the first film.
