Although it seems like I beat the crap out of this film, I honestly enjoyed it. Sure it had its issues and mistakes, but if you go into it knowing that it might not be a good as the first film, then you'll end up having a great time. Yes the antagonist is poor, the opening exposition is rushed, and a lot of characters are just thrown into the background, but even with that Kingsman: The Golden Circle is still a pretty good time to be had. Contrary to popular belief, I really enjoy Vaughn's unique style of directing, and although some might find it immersion breaking, I think it's a great way to help differentiate the Kingsman series from other films within the genre. Egerton was great again as Eggsy, and both Strong and (surprisingly) Berry provided some great performances and character depth. Although critics might disagree with me on this one, I decided to give Kingsman: The Golden Circle a "Good" on theVade Review Bar or a 7 out of 10. But with all that being said, The Golden Circle is still a sequel shadowed by its beloved predecessor. It's not a film to break the sequel curse, but it does do a pretty damn good job at trying to.
