Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) **REVIEW**

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.

  • Taron Egerton – Eggsy (Kingsmen: The Secret Service, Sing, Legend, Eddie The Eagle)
  • Edward Holcroft – Charlie (Kingsmen: The Secret Service, Vampire Academy)

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.

The Imitation Game (20140 **REVIEW**

I had the pleasure watching The Imitation Game this weekend and I have to say it was an extraordinary film. Benedict Cumberbatch was excellent as Alan Turing in this true based film about a mathematician trying to crack enigma with fellow mathematicians.

Alan Turing is brilliant person but slightly arrogant. The Imitation Game is about Alan Turing – the guy who we can thank for today for having computers. Alan Turing worked for the government in second world war to crack a code that the Germans was using. All Alan had to do was to build a machine who would help them. He had to write a letter to Churchill to get the funding for the machine because the man in charge of the operation wouldn’t. He wanted to find any reason to kick out Alan. So, Alan Turing builds his machine but it won’t work yet. Him and the others are trying to find a reason to why, they have been given a month while his boss trying to find a Soviet spy at the complex. Which they think is Alan Turing.

Also, Alan Turing trying to keep his sexual preferences a secret. Since homosexuality was illegal back then. He proposes to a female mathematician who been helping Alan in secret with his machine. Her family didn’t want her to be there and he had to hide his sexuality. She was fine with that, she liked his mind and their discussions. But Alan being who he was ended it all. In 1954 Alan Turing ended up killing himself and not being given any credit for his work for the government top-secret project to break the enigma. In 2013 the Queen herself gave Alan Turings family an open apology and gave him credit for his work and lifted his sentence for being homosexual and he had to take pills for chemical castration.

The Imitation Game shows you the adventure and fascinating journey that Alan Turing took when he was working at this project that civilians got read and see about so many years after the war. It’s a film that you REALLY have to see in your life.

You see actors like Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightly, Matthew Goode, Rory Kinnear, Allen Leech, Charles Dance, Mark Strong, Jack Tarlton and many more.

Kingsman: The Secret Service **REVIEW**

When I saw the trailer for this movie I was sucked in and wanted to see it so badly. I finally got to see it yesterday. We get to see Colin Firth in a different role than what I am used to see him in and it was great to see him do something different.

Kingsman is about a secret agency not funded by government. We get to see Harry getting bad news to a woman and her son about their husband and father. Who died by saving Harry during a Kingsman mission. Little Eggsy grows up and is not in the best situation. He gets into fights, his mom dates someone new – greatest ass of them all. Eggsy gets himself arrested and calls a number that’s behind a medallion that Harry gave him as a small child. Harry gives him a choice – go back t o his friends and no future or take a chance and come with Harry to get a future. Of course Eggsy takes the chance but the question is: Is Eggsy Kingsman material? Will he make his father proud from grave by making it all the way to become a flawless Kingsman Agent?

We get to see a series of heart jumping training and action. We get to laugh and feel heartbroken. But we get to see Colin Firth &  Samuel L Jackson is one of their best performance yet. I would recommend this movie to anyone, you wouldn’t be disappointed of it. It delivers everything you get to see in the trailer – excitement, laughter, tension & smiles.

You get to see actors like Colin Firth, Mark Strong, Jack Davenport, Mark Hamill, Sofia Boutella, Samuel L Jackson, Michael Caine & Taron Egerton and many more.
