Kingsman: The Golden Circle hit theaters on Thursday night with an official release on Friday and fans of the popular franchise are loving the outrageous film.
Following Kingsman: The Secret Service, The Golden Circle is burdened with competing with a wholly original, fresh, hilarious, action-packed launch of a franchise from director Matthew Vaughn. The original introduced Taron Egerton to the world as Eggsy and kickstarted Colin Firth's potential action career. "You don't set out to make it better," Vaughn told ComicBook.com. "I wanted to see these characters again, I wanted to see how they grew and I wanted to make an organic, authentic experience."
Vaughn did create organic, authentic experience according to some of these reactions from the already over-$3.4-million worth of fans who have already watched The Golden Circle.
