Review: Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Kingsman: The Secret Service was one of the most pleasant surprises of 2014, a kick ass homage to Roger Moore era Bond that was also completely over the top. The Golden Circle can’t quite live up to the bar set by the first movie but it’s still a fun spy romp as Kingsman teams up with their southern fried American counterparts, Statesman.

Review: War for the Planet of the Apes
