    ★★★½

    • K is one of the best original characters to come from a big-budget feature in a very long time. His character arc is fucking phenomenal and very unique for a “blockbuster”.

    • On a technical standpoint, the scene where Joi and Mariette share a body is the best moment from the film.

    Kingsman: The Golden Circle

    ★★★★

    "Manners maketh man." - Whiskey

    Well shit, that's now two movies with scenes involving Take Me Home, Country Roads that almost made me cry. And both happen to star Channing Tatum. Coincidence?

    So, Kingsman: The Secret Service is probably one of my favorite action films ever. I went into it with no expectations and left absolutely floored by its wit and style. Although, in my opinion, Kingsman: The Golden Circle pales in comparison to the original, this was still such…
