Agents Eggsy (now Galahad)and Merlin team with their American counterparts, the Statesmen after their headquarters gets blown to smithereens.
The opening action scene is cool but sadly they have Matrix-like slow-mo stop and go fx which I hate. first off it not only ruins the momentum of the action sequence, but it also looks ‘cartoon-y’. They used it too much (I think every action scene had the ‘trick’ in it to some extent.) Use that for one part of an action sequence fine… like a certain move that would otherwise not be noticed and needs to be shown just a little slower so we can appreciate it. This was used in a few points in one fight/action scene.
Oh I like the Statesman building. That;’s cool, and always wished they’d make buildings like that for real. (easier to find where you are going especially if you can’t find the building number.
The guy from Game of Thrones forget character’s name but he’s a dead one. I think his real name is Pablo Pascal gets his cowboy on with a LAZso (Lazer Lasso) and after a bit of an entertaining Whip fight ‘I feel like a tornado in a trailer park”
And there’s quite a musical cameo with flair …
Oh Action scene n poppy island and the Scissor sign!
I need to rewatch the first but while still somewhat enjoyable I don’t think it was as awesome as the first.
Though it was still better than Atomic Blonde, even with a cartoony looking effect.
