Back in 2014 when I saw first Kingsman I loved it. Kingsman is funny, got some cool stunts and it’s something that never been done before. Back in 2014 we met Eggsy, a London boy with a lot of troubles and not much discapline. But he got recruited to Kingsman, a spy organisation that straightened him out. He became someone he never thought he could become.
In second film, we met him again. Still witty but much smarter. He’s also in a relationship now. If you remember the ending of the first film you know who he rescued. Yeah, that’s his girlfriend now, believe it or not. But they are good together, just Eggsy job that comes in between. In The Golden Circle their relation and Eggy’s relation to his coworkers is being put to the test thanks to a woman who’s slightly crazy, she became rich by selling high class drugs and now want… world domination? What she want?
We get to meet Kingsman’s cousins called Statesmen. Based in Kentucky, USA. They make whiskey and Kingsman makes suits. But for this enemy they have to work together to find out where she is and what she actually wants. Poppy poisons her drugs and only way to get her antidote is to grant her immunity. When one of their own get poisoned by this drug they know the really have to work together. We also get to meet a unlikely movie guest – Elton John. Not kidding. Elton himself, plays himself in this film and he is so funny. Made me laugh every time.
So now Kingsman & Statemen have to work together, so how well will they work together really? Specially now that Eggsy and Merlin found out that Harry is still alive…. but something isn’t quite okay with him. He lost his memory, but as you know, he gets it back but is he still Harry though? And can they trust him? Can Eggsy and Merlin trust one of their own?
If you are a fan of Kings: The Secret Service then I would really recommend for you to go and see this one in the cinema. It’s witty, funny, cool stunts and it also got Colin Firth, Channing Tatum, Jeff Bridges and Julienne Moore. They make a fun incredible cast.

Who is the director and what is she/he known for?
Matthew Vaugh known for SEVERAL other films that done really well on the big screen. To mention a few: Kingmen: The Secret Service, Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class, Stardust, Layer Cake. So there’s a huge chance you might have seen work already. Born in London, he went to U.S and become an assistant to a director. After a while he returned to London and studied Ancient History. But he dropped to return to U.S to start his career as a director. But soon saw everyone else tried the same so he went back home once again and made films in England, some shorts and he got noticed.
