"Manners Maketh the Man": Kingsman the Golden Circle Review

In which I compare a spy movie to ice cream and cake.

In the sequel to an unexpected hit of 2015, The Kingsmen agency finds itself without a headquarters and has to find out who the culprit is while working together with their American sibling agency, The Statesmen.

I absolutely loved this film! It was funny, entertaining, and very adrenaline pumping. Right from the beginning at almost 2 minutes into the story you're thrust into action with a car chase and Prince music. Definitely it felt a bit necessary to blast rock music and drive fast afterwards to get the action out of your system.

A lot of people said that it fell to the curse of "sequelitis" and I think that is actually kind of true. There was more talking and less action than the last one but, when there was action it made up for the slow part. For example, the ski gondola ( I think that's what those are called) scene that you see in the trailer

was really well done, I would compare it to the same stress and tension you probably felt watching the skydiving scene in the first one.

Honestly though in the end I was just happy that we got a sequel! I loved the first one and then being told that there would be a second one was exciting in itself. It's like eating ice cream then being told I can have cake with it. I didn't need it but I'm very happy to have it so thanks!

If you love action, a good spy story, and just enjoyed the first as much as I did, then this is the film for you.

4/5

Spoiler:

The only thing that angered me though was the quick fired deaths in the first half hour. Remember that puppy we all loved, JB?

He dies! JB dies guys! JB dies! Why?!?!?!?!

Also so does Roxie! Why?!?! I feel like I barely knew the girl!


I'm going on comic book logic though, and will hope that they are still alive. No body in a coffin, no death! I mean look what it lead to for this one!

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
