On "Kingsman: The Golden Circle"
From The Dispatch:
Like its predecessor, it is long, loud, and has a nasty streak a mile wide, bludgeoning the audience over the head with constant, overly CGI-enhanced action sequences that feel more like cartoons than fights with actual stakes. Maybe I’ve been spoiled by recent films like “Atomic Blonde,” whose bruising action scenes feel more grounded and actually mean something. Every punch is felt and has real consequences for the narrative. The action scenes in “Kingsman” feel like the gee-whiz daydreams of a pre-teen boy playing with action figures.Click here to read my full review.
