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

But in a cast laden with the Oscar-winning likes of Moore, Berry, Bridges and Firth, it's actually rock'n'roll legend Elton John who is the standout, hurling choice Anglo-Saxon invective at anyone in earshot and sending himself up with brio as Poppy's hostage. The Kingsman doomsday scenario takes them to a Bourbon warehouse in Kentucky, where we first meet the members of their American-based equivalent in the Statesman: Champagne (Bridges), Tequila (Tatum), Ginger Ale (Berry) and Whiskey (Pascal).

My quality indicator has finally been proven to be wrong.

All in all, Kingsman: The Golden Circle is that same over the top movie where the most unexpected things happen, and you're not sure if you love it or hate it.

In 2014 audiences were introduced to Gary "Eggsy" Unwin played by relative newcomer Taron Edgerton in Kingsman: The Secret Service.

Things pick up when Poppy's sinister plan to legalize drugs runs afoul of a politician's even more sinister plan to kill all drug users.

But in doing so, the story is sidelined, which means we don't really see much of Julianne Moore's incredible villain Poppy and her plan to control the world with drugs. It is here she runs a lethal operation promising grisly deaths to any who get in her way.

Taron Egerton in Kingsman: The Golden Circle. It's a fresh take on an old trope and accomplishes something that few sequels do: it takes one of the worst moments in the first film and turn it into one of the most entertaining subplots of the film. A couple touches of surprising emotion early and later on give the sequel what it needs to be worthwhile, assuming moviegoers can leave logic at the door and really just have a good time with the most outrageous film of the year, and the most stylish.

Then the reaction, you saw a young team, we played one-twos on the left wing at 2-0 and then [Leicester] made a counter-attack. In Rodgers' second season, Suarez was voted Player of the Year after scoring 31 goals in 33 Premier League games.

The full look at Tatum's character, who's every flamboyant Southern stereotype rolled into one, is delightful.

The actors, stunt teams and film editors really did a phenomenal job in putting these scenes together.

"I think I always believed there must be a way I come back", he says.

There's also a great extended cameo from Bruce Greenwood's very relevant president, and another from Emily Watson's Chief of Staff Fox. "Then I saw it and I said I wish I'd been in it".

Speaking of icons, it was a text from returning star Colin Firth that sealed the deal for Moore to play the film's villain.

Kingsman 2 The Golden Circle is action spy comedy movie that is directed and written by Matthew Vaughn along with Goldman. I'd certainly be happy with more Kingsman movies, because Egerton is a winning leading man and Vaughn's action direction remains fantastic, but this movie feels like a victim of its unanticipated success.
