NEWSROOM – The comedy action movie Kingsman: The Golden Circle was released in late September, and displaced the horror sensation It as the No. 1 film in North America.

Kingsman: the Golden Circle is the second film in the Kingsman franchise.  In the sequel, members of Kingsman discover a spy organization in the United States named Statesman and they work together to overthrow the evil force of Poppy, a global entrepreneur who wants to legalize the drug trade so that her multimillion dollar empire can operate freely in the United States.

With the addition of Statesman, the story delivers audiences a more exciting arc.  The was the secret agents are named (as “Statesman” and “Kingsman”) is in itself clever wording.

Kingsman: the Golden Circle has up to now received $100 million global this weekend in box office.  On the movie review website Rotten Tomatoes, it received an audience score of 75, which is a bit lower than the 84 of the first film Kingsman: the Secret Service; however, a student of our school has a different opinion.

“I think the second one is better than the first one.  It’s a very exciting movie, especially the action part.  I was so into the scene and was very nervous when watching it,” said Olivia Hu, a 9th grader.  “The positive part about this movie is that it also shows a social problem, the use of drugs.  I find it very funny when one of the character says ‘I will never do this again’.”

Truly, the Kingsman series shows off its spectacular skill delivering detailed action scenes, some of which may have violent content but it is filmed in a rather tasteful manner (people do not find it too ‘uncomfortably bloody.’)  

The combination of humor and action makes the film light and thrilling at the same time.  It is a great comedy action movie that you should not miss!
