"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.

Went to see Kingman: The Golden Circle with my husband and 16-year-old daughter. We all saw and loved the first movie and looked forward to this one. We weren't disappointed. While not a necessity, I suggest seeing Kingsman: The Secret Service before The Golden Circle. There are a few inside jokes that you won't get unless you do.

One problem with sequels is the need to out-do the first one. If a little is good, then more is better seems to be the studios' answer. And The Golden Circle does suffer from this a little. Especially with the quick changing camera angles during fight scenes. More is not better! But that is a minor complaint. The rest of the movie was campy, over-the-top fun like the first movie.

People forget Kingsman is a 2012 UK comic written by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons, published by Icon imprint of Marvel! And the movies keep the outlandish comic book feel. It has a super spy theme like James Bond, but with a strong roll-your-eyes comedy aspect. That is part of its charm.

Don't want to spoil, so not plot talk. But so many twists and surprises! Unfortunately, the trailer ruined one of the biggest. Oops!

The movie was made for the 3-D experience, but we saw it standard. It is worth catching on the big screen.

The whole family agrees on 4 1/2 "Golden" Sheep
(actually I wanted it to be: 4 1/2 best sheep I've had in three weeks)
