The star of ‘The Mandalorian’ and ‘The Last of Us’ is capable of appearing to be the protagonist even when he acts as a secondary, as happens in the powerful ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’.
He is one of the actors of the moment, mainly for acting as a protective father both in a global apocalypse and in a galaxy far, far away. But Pedro Pascal can also shine in lighter projects, like this fun and spectacular action movie with not a few stars (and still manages to be one of the most outstanding). This movie is Kingsman: The Golden Circle.
The sequel to Matthew Vaughn’s smash hit starring Taron Egerton and Colin Firth casts Pascal and other big faces for give the franchise more rhythm, maintaining the freshness that it brought with the first delivery. In addition to Pascal, we see Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Julianne Moore and Jeff Bridges joining this bombardment that can be seen streaming through Disney+.
After the Kingsmans’ London base of operations is blown up, Eggsy, now a full-fledged Kingsman, and his partner Merlinse they will be forced to travel together to the United States. There, both must join their American counterparts, members of a secret association known as Statesman.
‘Kingsman 3’: What happened to the end of the story of Colin Firth and Taron Egerton?
Statesmans are not as polite and elegant as Kingsmans. In addition to dressing in cowboy style, they are a group of troublemakers who, instead of hiding out in a mansion accessed through a tailor shop, have made their headquarters in a gigantic distillery in the heart of Kentucky. Despite their differences, both elite organizations must agree to take down the villainous megalomaniac who could endanger the entire world.
The adaptation of Mark Millar’s irreverent comics was born with the intention of making a badass and parodic response to the universe James Bond, taking a brutal approach to the world of British espionage. Vaugh knew how to bring that spirit to the big screen, both in the first film and in this one, thanks to a great ability to shoot powerful action scenes that take away the hiccups.
‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’: action that takes away the hiccups
The introduction of a parallel agency in the United States, full of references to Kentucky whiskey, shows that the other key to its success is the unleashed sense of humor. Even in violent exhibitions there is never a lack of that funny component that makes the film never lose pace or stop entertaining. The delivery of the cast is also key for this action to work.
What to see: three essential Pedro Pascal films for when ‘The Last of Us’ is not enough
Although Egerton and Firth are the clear protagonists, and the other appearances attract attention, Pascal is the secret weapon so that the sequel does not lose steam with respect to the original. Seen from the perspective that he is one of the most charismatic actors today, it is not surprising that stole the show at times, but at the time he still had things to prove. And go if he shows them.
You can see Kingsman: The Golden Circle in Disney+.
