saw: the golden circle

The original Kingsman, despite its sometimes fratty excesses, was an enjoyable weekday-afternoon diversion, the kind of accidental hit whose ability to drive a franchise is always uncertain (cf. Now You See Me)—so the sequel’s earnest desire to propel the characters forward is commendable, I guess? The previous installment’s fun quotient feels a bit recycled here, and that worrisomely casual undercurrent of misogyny is still present, but overall The Golden Circle isn’t a terrible way to spend a Wednesday matinee. Grade: B
