Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Kingsman: The Golden Circle

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.
