Talmente divertente che la durata eccessiva (2 ore e 20) non pena nemmeno più di tanto. Kingsman 2 è un degno successore, con ottime scene d'azione, una trama che sa non prendersi sul serio e che rimane sempre volutamente ridicola e fumettosa, una bella stangata contro le forze politiche del pianeta e un accompagnamento sonoro eccezionale. Detto questo, ovviamente, non c'è niente che sia al livello del primo capitolo
Matthew Vaughn must really love the 60s. Example: kitsch period look of Poppy's private ranch in Cambodia (haha?) overwhelms Julianne Moore's subtly neurotic performance as villain. But this is the smallest sin in a movie guilty of cartoon violence and disgusting sexual innuendos. Glib political satire tries to accord KINGSMAN a false sense of cleverness. The real scene-stealer is not Elton John but Bruce Greenwood.
Saw it with my mom because she likes Colin Firth. This is basically Looney Tunes with a weirdly nuanced but mostly stupid take on the war on drugs. It is still the sequel to a movie that ended with a facsimile of Obama having his head explode because he is a part of a world order that is going to decimate the Earth's population though.
Comes up short of its predecessor, but who expected it to surpass the freshness and inspiration the original managed to inspire? "Kingsman: The Golden Circle" is a welcome-back of old characters playing similar beats until the thene of the War on Drugs is worked into an engaging plot. It holds its own in being singularly entertaining, even a bit emotional, as it wrangles in more fun, if overkill, into the franchise.
Terrible pacing, REALLY creative ideas, wasted talent, and Elton John. If you can't tell from that list that it's a mixed bag, then here's me telling you: it's a mixed bag. Decently fun. Gotta say though, the Glastonbury sequence is in such poor taste its surprising even for Vaughn.
