KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE ★★★

Taron Egerton’s chav-turned-superspy is forced to call in all-star transatlantic help when the world is menaced by peppy queenpin Poppy (Julianne Moore) in this spectacular follow-up to Kingsman: the Secret Service.

Director Matthew Vaughn ups the action ante to the max and hurls in an A-list cast (Jeff Bridges, Channing Tatum, Halle Berry) and Sir Elton John to an outrageous, gadget-laden and very rude romp.


BORG VS McENROE ★★★

Sverrir Gudnason and Shia LaBeouf certainly look like the iconic superstars in this depiction of the Wimbledon tennis match that would define an era, if not the game itself.

As movies about sporting rivalries go, maybe not in the class of Rush but if you’ve never seen the 1980 clash itself (and that tie-break), then it’s a vividly rendered substitute.
