Another highly enjoyable British film that is part action, part comedy, part espionage and all entertainment. It’s a sequel to KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE, which is based on the comic book series, KINGSMAN, created by Dave Gibbons and Mark Millar. Once again, the screenplay is by Jane Goldman and Matthew Vaughn, the film soundtrack is by Henry Jackman and Matthew Margeson, the film is produced by Adam Bohling, David Reid and Matthew Vaughn and once again, it’s directed by Matthew Vaughn.
This time around, the plot follows the members of Kingsman needing to team up with their American counterpart, Statesman, when the world is held hostage by Poppy Adams and her drug cartel.
The film stars Colin Firth, Taron Egerton, Mark Strong, Edward Holcroft, Hanna Alström and Sophie Cookson, who all reprise their roles from the first film, while Julianne Moore, Halle Berry, Pedro Pascal, Elton John, Channing Tatum and Jeff Bridges join the cast for this sequel. It may not be quite as fresh as the original, but this sequel still comes across as first class popcorn entertainment.
