Really good movie and cool fighting scenes, but the story is not that great.

While this sequel was enjoyable, it was not on the level of the first movie. It felt like two different movies. One movie was obviously Kingsman, a British style secret agent movie that's fun, smart, exciting, and action driven. The other movie is just a regular American secret agent movie with more guns and adult content than necessary. The best parts of the movie were those with the original cast members on screen. The plot itself was not bad, it just felt like it was a Statesman issue instead of a Kingsman one. Overall the movie was enjoyable, but any future films need to do a better job of staying true to the quantities that made Kingsman such a great movie and generated such excitement for the sequel.

When their headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage, their journey leads them to the discovery of an allied spy organization in the US called Statesman, dating back to the day they were both founded. In a new adventure that tests their agents’ strength and wits to the limit, these two elite secret organizations band together to defeat a ruthless common enemy, in order to save the world, something that’s becoming a bit of a habit for Eggsy…
