Deco crosses the pond for London premiere of 'Kingsman: The Golden Circle'

"I lost my discipline, where you're with a bunch of friends and you go, 'Oh, that's a good idea.' And it was a good idea, but everything just got longer and longer and longer".

In 2015, Kingsman: the Secret Service had created the surprise in the halls of the French film and of the world, winning more than 400 million $ at the box office.

The Lego Movie and The Lego Batman Movie have become worldwide hits and now the first movie based upon an original Lego property is being released.

Critics are a bit mixed on Kingsman: The Golden Circle, though pretty much all of them seem to agree the film is a big ol' powder keg of insane action.

Taron Egerton returns in the lead role as Eggsy, a spy in the secret agency called the Kingsman. Kingsman is an ensemble and Eggsy works best with a partner like Harry.

Magic Mike is getting ready for a table top performance. In her first scene she happily demands a recruit throw a disloyal employee into a meat grinder so she can make a hamburger out of him.

Kingsman: The Golden Compass may reach the gross-out level at times and there's definitely one part while installing a tracker that they could have done without, but the film is still enjoyable to watch for much of its 141-minute running time.

After all, why cast Channing Tatum as a badass American cowboy secret agent if you weren't considering giving him a spin-off movie? It is what it is with that kind of movie and I figure when they realized a lot of their fanbase was comprised of women, they'd change their game. Moore's having the time of her life, and so's everyone else. "If the first 'Kingsman" left you going 'Wow!' this one leaves you saying, 'Hmm...cool.' And while it doesn't reach the same hyperbolic heights as the first film, there are certainly worse things than being entertained for two hours". Blunt jabs at the current political climate are not the farthest director Matthew Vaughn is willing to go, and will hardly be the most memorable (or jaw-dropping) moments of the film.

Instead, Vaughn gleefully revels in the chance to dial up the bombast and ludicrousness. As a result, The Golden Circle often feels precisely tailored when it should've been cut a little looser. However, this time the audience are anticipating more from the new release.

For instance, there's a completely unnecessary scene at Glastonbury Festival that feels like it was added just to raise the movie's shock factor. Our heroes need to save the day, but the odds are stacked against them when their resources are taken away. What I didn't love was the sexism running rampant through a lot of the movie.
