The original subtitle was The Golden Triangle, named after the area that borders Thailand, Laos and Myanmar. However, when the film was test screened three times, the filmmakers found out that no one in the test audience had heard of the area's geography nor the history with that title. It was then decided to change the word Triangle to Circle. See more »
When Taron Egerton (Eggsy) and Mark Strong (Merlin) are at the end of the Statesman bottle of whiskey and have nearly drank it all, they notice the bottle has been marked "Distilled in Kentucky." When Merlin then makes a reference to country western music he starts to then sing the beginning lyrics to "Country Roads" written by John Denver. John Denver wrote the song "Country Roads" about the state of West Virginia and the lyrics of the song itself make several references to West Virginia, not Kentucky. See more »

The "Take Me Home, Country Road" musical theme is heard over the opening logo. This foreshadows the song being used at a pivotal moment in the film. See more »
Entertaining, but never quite reaches the heights of its predecessor
'Kingsman: The Golden Circle' has everything fans of the first film could have possibly wanted and more. Action, humour and special effects are all in abundance and visually it's very impressive. The plot is decent, especially for a sequel, but it never quite reaches the same level as the first film. The British/American theme works well though and there are some very funny cultural jokes and references.
As someone who loved the first 'Kingsman', I'm pleased that the sequel didn't disappoint. It remains true to everything that made the first film such a success, including taking some big risks and thinking out of the box. The end result is an imperfect and at times messy film, but a rewarding and highly entertaining one nonetheless. 'The Golden Circle' is much better than expected but just not quite on the same level as the first film.
