Julianne Moore told by Colin Firth about villain role in Kingsman 2

Movie of the Week Kingsman The Golden Circle Manners maketh man: Taron Egerton says “gracious” stars of “Kingsman” helped him

While we wait for The Golden Circle to put Harry back into the fray - this time on American soil - all well-dressed, badly-behaved duties are handled by his rookie running mate Eggsy (Taron Egerton).

"Kingsman: The Golden Circle" recently received a round of critical panning from British viewers.

This Protocol leads them to the Statesman liquor company distillery, where they discover the headquarters of their American cousins. The film is almost two-and-a-half hours long, and the majority of the negative reviews center around the idea that there's just far too much packed in.

When they get back to the room, a nervous Eggsy fakes having to go to the bathroom - although she offers to let him pee on her instead - so he can secretly FaceTime with the Princess (Hanna Alström) to discuss how he has to cheat on her to save the world. What I don't want is people not to discuss it and be bland and boring, so I do things where I want people - it's just who I am and I'm not interested in homogenized, bland cinema, the sort of movies made-by-committee in Hollywood. A definite theme of the movie is how Eggsy balances his two worlds and the film makes sure the audience knows it. It often feels too wrapped up in its apparent goal to excel above its predecessor on the insane scale that it loses sight of telling a story that we can successfully follow or buy into, not that you would ever actually buy into, really, anything that happens in this film.

Now an established agent of the independent Kingsman service, Eggsy takes on Poppy Adams (Julianne Moore), a psychopathic worldwide drug trafficker intent on blackmailing the US government into legalizing all narcotics. Channing Tatum seems to take on the most outrageous, out-of-character roles and he nails it every time. In terms of its plot, The Golden Circle is a great sequel.

Serving up Billie Jean King's rise to stardom to a new generation
You'd be surprised how many collectors there are and people collecting every decade and specializing in all kinds of things. Battle of the Sexes isn't a laundry-list account of everything King would later come to fight for, including LGBT rights.

The political commentary in the movie is top notch and a source of excellent entertainment regardless of beliefs. The classy English star's unlikely reinvention as an action hero was the highlight of the first movie for many, and his endearing mentor/student relationship with Taron Egerton's Eggsy provided the heart of the film.

With its inventively nutso action, youthful vibe, and subversive topicality, the "Kingsman" franchise feels more relevant than even Daniel Craig's James Bond.

There is also his romantic life that hangs in the balance, but it is handled in such a messy way that it is never truly satisfying. Because who doesn't love Elton John?

We all know what happened. Funny, irreverent and wholly memorable, it stands apart as one of the most entertaining films of the last few years. Still, it was like a nice beer compared to a bottle of champagne - both get you drunk, one just does it better.
