Having racked up just under $400m worldwide, from a $104m budget, Kingsman: The Golden Circle may not have flown with critics but it’s certainly proved a hit. With a third, and possibly final, Kingsman film on the way, it seems that director Matthew Vaughn has snapped up Hugh Jackman in a starring role.
If Kingsman: The Secret Service was intent on, and successful in, putting the fun back into spy cinema, its sequel, The Golden Circle, has clearly been established to bring back the silliness and smutty immaturity. In the directorial hands, once again, of Matthew Vaughn, it’s almost as if the past decade of James Bond never happened.
The many adventures of the true Christopher Robin weren’t quite so bouncy, trouncey, flouncy, pouncy; fun, fun, fun, fun, fun as you might think.
Spoilers may follow.
