I hardly go to the movies anymore and Kingsman (the first one shown about 2 years ago) was one of the rare films I saw twice on the big screen.
The sequel is out and I might see it this week after work.
I thought the first movie was great. That's why I was excited to see the sequel. I thought both were campy but entertaining with plenty of action. However, I think the plot line of the sequel was just too silly and relied much too much on special effects.
Julianne Moore played a truly evil and psychopathic villain, but her evil plot was, I thought, just plain goofy. Jeff Bridges' character is, for all intents and purposes, just making a cameo in the flick.
I liked the introduction of the Kingsmen's American counterpart, the Statesmen, but I think it was plugged in mainly as a way of setting up a third movie in the franchise.
Great opening scene full of action and lots of cool Matrix-like fight scenes, but I think I'd have been better off waiting to rent it on DVD thank plunking down $20 for the theater.
