When all Kingsman base been attacked and destroyed. Eggsy with Merlin have to travel to Kentucky to ask for help to rebuild Kingsman and find who are the people behind the destroyed of Kingsman-which involved a big drug market ahead of them and of course- saving the world.

The film features many stars. Starring by the British born actor Taron Egerton is back as Eggsy the funny and innocence, Julianne Moore is chosen as the film’s villain. The surprising part is Colin Firth is back. Has been declared dead from the first film in here he’s back. Channing Tatum played he’s part as a Statesman agent and Halle Berry as the agent behind desk. And Elton John played as himself as funny as anybody could possibly imagine.

Matthew Vaughn who also directed the first installment of Kingsman is back to direct this film. You could feel that this is his with the comical action scenes, controversial scenes, musics, the funny feeling only by watching a film directed by Matthew we could feel. The film starts with a tense fighting scene between Eggsy and Charlie Hesketh, an ex Kingsman trainee. The film is not boring at all and you still can breath even though there’s so many action scenes in the film. The editing is nice with scene connectors almost in every scenes gives the film a flowing sense into the audience mind.

In this film, still the same as the first film, the music is handled by Henry Jackman and Matthew Margeson. With “Country Road” song becomes the film’s theme is amazing. Especially how they with the director gives a grand scene of Merlin played by Mark Strong in Cambodia singing this song gives a goosebumps to the audience. Praise! Another praise comes beacuse of the theme they have chosen: The aftermath of DRUGS abuse. Gives warning to audience do not dabble with drugs. Gives the film another point as this action film is not just some entertaining one but also with message behind it.

The not so good thing about this film is how the character Whiskey played by Pedro Pascal is killed with milling machine. Thi is just too sadist. Because he’s not an all evil character in the film. He betrayed Eggsy and Galahad (Colin Firth) but he’s an idealistic who just want a world free of drugs. One more thing, the use of f word and other rude words is kinda bad to hear for the audiences (It’s no surprise actually, look back at Kick-Ass) Anyway, just an advice, probably they should reduce it on the next sequel.

Kingsman is planning to have another sequel (and we hope too) because this kind of action film gives a new genre of action to the world of cinemas. A thrilling and very entertaining film you would feel no loss by watching this film. This film is worth it your money!!!
