Back in 2014 Kingsman: The Secret Service became a surprise hit that followed the chavvy Eggsy as he became a suave 007 type, refreshing the tired secret agent formula with some much needed youth and humour while still packing enough action to see off established franchises. Now cemented as an agent, Eggsy must save the fate of the Kingsman from a secretive new world order organisation in Kingsman: The Golden Circle. With their headquarters destroyed, the Kingsman travel to the US to seek the help of their star-studded American counterparts, The Statesmen, complete with electric lassos, Stetsons that double up as weapons and beverage-based code-names, it’s outlandish, full of bravado, and bordering on the ridiculous. It straddles a fine line between self-awareness and full-on parody expertly – and it’s all the more fun for it.
