Boston Globe's Tom Russo called the film series better than James Bond. He writes:
With its inventively nutso action, youthful vibe, and subversive topicality, the "Kingsman" franchise feels more relevant than even Daniel Craig's James Bond. Screen espionage doesn't come any hipper these days.
But Chicago Sun-Times' Richard Roeper destroyed the movie. He says if you loved the original, stay away from the sequel. Roeper writes:
If a white towel had been handy as I screened the punishingly long and dreadful “Kingsman: The Golden Circle,” I would have thrown it at the screen and made a wish: Please make it stop.
One of the worst crimes a sequel can commit is to create a scenario that undoes or renders irrelevant key moments from the original. (Hello, later “Terminator” movies.) “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” commits that offense, among many, many other injustices. Despite the admittedly arresting visuals, including some beautifully eye-popping attention to detail and color in many a scene, this is actually quite an ugly film.
