When a sinister drug kingpin kills most of the Kingsman agents, Eggsy and Merlin seek out Statesman, an American branch of the organisation, where they make an unexpected discovery. The follow-up to Kingsman: The Secret Service delivers another entertaining but instantly forgettable mix of locker room humour and cartoonish violence. However, this time the script is all over the place and the movie ends up being about 30 minutes too long. Vaughn could have easily trimmed the running time by cutting out a needlessly long celebrity cameo.
