    Kingsman: The Golden Circle was more entertaining to me than the new Bladerunner movie.

    Chicago Reader capsule review:

    Kingsman: The Golden Circle
    Video Rated R · 141 minutes · 2017

    Action, Adventure, Comedy, Drama

    Matthew Vaughn, director of Kingsman: The Secret Service, corrects his egregious bumping off of Colin Firth’s dapper London spy in that movie by resurrecting him for this sequel, which has as many stunts and gadgets but broader comedy. Taron Egerton returns as Firth’s protege, and Julianne Moore is their nemesis, the demented CEO of a multibillion-dollar drug cartel, whom she plays as a cross between Martha Stewart and Hannibal Lecter. Exaggerated, cartoonish violence, deliberately cheesy CGI, and a buoyant pop soundtrack make this a stylish if overstuffed romp. With Jeff Bridges, Channing Tatum, and Pedro Pascal as American spies, and Elton John as a high-kicking action hero.

    I haven't seen "Kingsman: The Golden Circle". I was put-off by the original. So I haven't had the incentive to rush out and see it. Maybe when it is available on TV. The original was too stylized and cutesy.

    Agree about the original, Steve. It was mostly ridiculous and too cute by half. I could never decide if it was intended to be satirical or was just unintentionally stupid. Don't think I'll watch the new one even on tv.
