    Reviews are a mixed bag.

    Some claim the action and characters are too over the top; some liked the "if it aint broke, dont fix it" nature of the film.

    It's unusual to see a Matthew Vaughn film get bad marks since his last 3 films imo were great.

    I'm surprised to see these movies have a following. I saw a first and it wasn't that entertaining nor funny. I thought for sure it wouldn't get a sequel.

    I don't really care about how much a movie makes in. That doesn't affect me. I just care if it's a good movie or not. It wasn't.

    Its enjoyable if you liked the first one. Still over the top and campy.
    And any movie that begins with Prince can’t be too bad.

    First one was a bit better but this sequel had more fun in it. Hated to see that one I liked died.
    It has to start somewhere
    It has to start sometime
    What better place than here
    What better time than now.....

    This thread is a lot more quiet than I thought.


    I just got back from seeing it.

    Pros:

    Action sequences
    Music selection
    Most of the new characters especially Tatum as Tequila and Julianne Moore as Poppy
    bond between Eggsy and Harry
    the more zany tone. where as the first felt like a balance between serious and campy, this one goes into the wacky side more, but not so much that it becomes Batman and robin. It feels like a "good" Roger Moore bond film.


    Cons:

    I wish there was more interaction between Poppy and the heroes in person. A lot of her scenes are "virtual" or with other villains.

    The social commentary was a bit too blunt regarding the drug issue. You could tell this was from the same crew who gave us "mutant and proud"

    I wish Tatum's character had more scenes, especially another action scene.

    Loss of a character from the first film that I wished had played a more important role in this one (more of a nitpick specific to me)

    The Swedish girlfriend is bland and I'm surprised in a Bond esque film that she makes up a significant part of the story.


    Random: There is a music cue directly lifted from X-men : First Class during a climactic moment with Harry. The music is the same when Professor X helps Magnus turn a satellite dish by experiencing a memory of Erik's mother.


    Overall: Not as good as the first, but still a fun film nonetheless

    Except this time DARE was telling you the war on drugs is bullshit. Sprinkle in some guy helps handicapped father while dealing with growing up.

    First one was about the dangers of consumerism :rofl:

    first one felt less on the nose about the issue. this one was hammering it hard...drugs are bad...illegal....and has consequences victims and bystanders. Consumerism is ok in moderation is what i got from the first...second had nothing of the sort.

    Drugs are bad wasn't the message. It was drug users vary just like people. You got normal ass weed heads getting lumped in with violent junkies a few the president willing to go full Duerte to prove a point. Meanwhile booze and cigarettes kill more than all illegal drugs combined and you got Whiskey over here trying to increase his stock. Hell, all Moore's character wanted was regulation like all the other shit. The President was the real villain of the film.

    As a Filipino, I was laughing all the way at how much it seemed that the film was taking a potshot at the dumb idiot we have as a president.

    Re: Roxy:
    They left her death scene nice and open-ended. She was clearly diving for something before it cut away, in a house full of high-tech stuff. This means they can put her back in if they wanted and blame her survival on some gadget or other, or just leave her dead if her actor won't return.

    The movie was a whole lotta fun, but could stand to be a teensy bit shorter. Not QUITE as good as the first, but not far off.

    So I just got back from watching Golden Circle.
    I went in completely blind because I have not seen the first one (I want to now though) and I have to say I absolutely loved it. It was just an over the top, tongue in cheek action spy thriller and it was exactly what I wanted it to be. It was like XXX meets 007. Just no fucks given let's have fun with this kind of movie

    I didn't even fee "left out" by not watching the first one which I appreciated.

    I wish there had been more Channing Tatum in the movie though. I have a man crush on him and love him in every movie he's in. Lol.

    Halle Berry ages like wine. She's so damn pretty. Especially with short hair like she had in the movie.

    All in all I really fucking enjoyed the movie and plan on buying the first one on iTunes to watch it when I get home.

    The first movie was shockingly good. I heard the 2nd was somewhat of a let-down and didn't reach the same heights of awesomeness.

    Just came from watching KTGC, loved the movie, though i have to nitpick
    that Whisky ended being a bad guy, liked his character and was excited at the idea of him being on the next movie

    Outside of that i think that the movie was a nice follow up for the 1st one.

    It was a good film, doesn't reach the heights of comedy and over the top action as the first. But good, I do think they chose poorly in some of the supporting characters that wound up dead.

    They really left it in a weird place if there is ever a third, almost like they were expecting this one to wrap up the franchise. There is room to go forward but still seems ill advised.

    Nope. They going to Asia to see their other cousins, Chinaman who sell rice and throw their cone hats to kill people like Oddjob.

    I thought it was okay, I felt like it wasn't nearly as fun to watch as the first but still had a few good moments. I would prefer if they did a third movie they just made it about the Statesmen.
