LOOK: Gadgets that save the world in ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’

Every hero is only as strong as their villain, of course. And in the latest “Kingsman: The Golden Circle,” that conflict comes from the introduction of Poppy Adams (Julianne Moore), a drug dealer who, as head of the mysterious Golden Circle criminal enterprise, sets in place a nefarious plan that sets her on a collision course with Eggsy (Taron Egerton). For director Matt Vaughn, the villain’s plot was of paramount importance – and to stop the ultimate heinous threat, the Kingsman are equipped with gadgets customized for the unrelenting explosive battle to save the world.

“Kingsman: The Golden Circle” won’t skimp on that patented Kingsman craziness, though, from an opening car chase in which Eggsy has to fight for his life in a Kingsman cab hurtling across London, to an all-out assault on Poppyland, and a barroom brawl which deliberately recalls the pub fight sequence from the first movie. “The fights are even more crazy,” says Egerton. “But in terms of the setpieces, Matthew has tried to do different things. There’s a sequence in the movie that has that hyper, one-shot feel, but you can’t top the church scene. He’d rather move on and find something new.”

After the attack and the Kingsman headquarters turned into ruins, Eggsy teams up with Merlin (Mark Strong) — who appears to be the only other survivor — to investigate the circumstances behind it. The Kingsman’s ‘Doomsday Protocal’ leads them to Kentucky, where they discover that Kingsman isn’t the only name in international espionage. Welcome to the lavishly-funded all-American organisation, Statesman.

Where there’s a Kingsman, there’s always a reliable gadget hidden or worn, here are some of their awesome gadgets used in saving the world:

· The agent’s hidden weapon, the Kingsman agent frames are handcrafted by Cutler & Gross, the finest purveyors in British luxury eyewear.

· The customised Kingsman pistol is the standard issue Sidearm for all Kingsman agents.

· Kingsman Briefcase functions both as a collapsible shield RPG Missile Launcher and fully automatic machine gun, the Kingsman briefcase is a key feature in the modern gentleman’s armour.

· Kingsman Gold Lighter is both a symbol of innovation with its timeless design, and a sophisticated agent weapon, a touch-activated hand grenade.

· The black leather Oxford shoes are an embodiment of quintessentially British style, worn by all Kingsman agents.

· Kingsman watch – crafted by Swiss watchmakers, TAG Heuer, globally renowned for their rich heritage in creating classic gentleman’s timepieces – the Kingsman Connected Watch is a stylish and perceptive agent accessory.
