Ten years ago, I was enchanted by Mamma Mia. Although I had grown up listening to ABBA, I was unfamiliar with the musical, but I instantly fell in love. The soundtrack lived in my car until SoCal’s relentless heat warped the CD, but I’d long since memorized every track. The first film’s wistful musical abandon endeared it to viewers, so when the sequel Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again was announced, I was uncertain that they could recapture the magic of the first film. So, after ten years, does the film keep its hopeful portrayal of young love? Well…yes and no. The sequel delivers some beautiful tender moments, but it’s not without a heavy dose of feels.

There doesn’t seem to be a lot of good in the world right now. I debated about whether or not to write this review, especially due to the film’s violent nature. But despite its gun-heavy and careless façade, Kingsman: The Golden Circle has surprising lessons about humanity, loyalty, and love. Not to mention, it’s just plain fun and DAMN does this world need a little fun. So forget reviews. Forget formality. Here are 5 reasons why you should go see Kingsman. Spoilers ahead!
