QUICK TAKE:
Action: After most of their team is murdered, a small number of British secret agents join forces with their American counterparts in hopes of bringing down the ruthless leader of a drug cartel who's threatening the lives of millions of people if her demands are not met.
PLOT:
Having been trained by the apparently now deceased Harry Hart (COLIN FIRTH), Gary "Eggsy" Unwin (TARON EGERTON) is a full-fledged Kingsmen secret agent tasked with protecting the world, something he's kept secret from almost everyone he knows, except for his girlfriend, Princess Tilde (HANNA ALSTRÍM), whose parents are literal royalty. Following a violent run-in with a former but washed up Kingsmen trainee, Charlie Hesketh (EDWARD HOLCROFT), Eggsy goes to meet his girlfriend's parents, must contend with a missile assault that wipes out the Kingsmen headquarters and kills the rest of the agents save for Merlin (MARK STRONG).

Unbeknownst to them, their enemy is Poppy Adams (JULIANNE MOORE), a drug kingpin who runs the secret "The Golden Circle" organization from the jungles of Cambodia where she lives in a 1950s style compound and submits her new recruits, such as Angel (TOM BENEDICT KNIGHT), to a grisly initiation process. He, Charlie, a number of armed goons and two robotic guard dogs serve as her henchmen, and when she isn't forcing the kidnapped Elton John (ELTON JOHN) to play songs for her, she's come up with a nefarious plan.

By mixing and modifying her usual assortment of narcotics, she's created a drug that first gives its users blue veins and then causes them to dance uncontrollably before being frozen in paralysis and ultimately dying in a bloody fashion. Her plan is to blackmail the President of the United States (BRUCE GREENWOOD) into legalizing all drugs and thus increasing her profits, and only then will she release an antidote to save those infected with her deadly drug concoction.

With no other recourse, Eggsy and Merlin travel to Kentucky where they encounter their American counterparts who operate under the guise of a whiskey distillery run by Champagne (JEFF BRIDGES) who uses the likes of Agents Whiskey (PEDRO PASCAL) and Tequila (CHANNING TATUM) to keep order, all while Ginger Ale (HALLE BERRY) provides tech and medical support. That latter role ended up saving the life of Harry, although he's now suffering from amnesia and thus doesn't recognize Eggsy or Merlin. As they try to help him regain his memory and return to their team, they and their new American spy friends do what they can to find and stop Poppy before it's too late.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
