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.

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

Vaughn hasn’t only run out of things to say but people to hate, and without that underlying aggression, the movie feels like it’s just going through the motions. Better luck next time, bruv.
“Kingsman: The Secret Service” introduced the world to Kingsman - an independent, international intelligence agency operating at the highest level of discretion, whose ultimate goal is to keep the world safe. In “Kingsman: The Golden Circle,” our heroes face a new challenge. 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…

On the weekend of May 14-15th 2016 there was filming for this film in Birmingham City Centre (UK). Scenes included a car chase.
In the opening car chase sequence, the vehicles are shown driving on the right, as if in continental Europe, when they are supposedly close to Kingsman's tailor shop in Savile Row in London's West End.
Poppy: My name is Poppy Adams, CEO of the Golden Circle. We engage in an aggressive business strategy, invest in the latest technology and take strict, disciplinary action. I'm speaking to you today because our world leaders have let us all down, so we are coming out of the shadows and taking over. And to make sure no one gets in our way... Kingsman is crumpets!
