Hollywood left us in the lurch in August, and with the exception of IT there hasn't been much to be excited about on the big screen - but there's a decent amount to like hitting theaters this week, with a little something being released for everyone. We've got action galore in Kingsman: The Golden Circle, some animation for the kids with The LEGO Ninjago Movie, and horror for the teen crowd in Friend Request.

Just remember, I'm not reviewing these movies, but rather predicting where they'll end up on the Tomatometer. Let's take a look at This Rotten Week has to offer.

When we last left Taron Egerton's Eggsy in Kingsman: The Secret Service (74%), he had just completed one hell of an action sequence in the evil Valentine's bunker and stopped world domination plans by a lispy Samuel L. Jackson. It was a hell of an ending to a hell of a movie, and left wide open the opportunity for many more stories to be told. The action sequences were tight and over the top, the tone funny as hell and the whole blockbuster was rife with big screen, popcorn shenanigans. I loved it, and can't wait to see more in the sequel, Kingsman: The Golden Circle.

Eggsy and company are back again with some new evils to fight, this time with the help of their American counterparts in the super secret spy game. Kingsman: The Golden Circle looks intense without being overbearing. It has a remarkably impressive ensemble lined up, with both new faces and more than a few old (including the presumed-deceased Colin Firth). Matthew Vaughn has returned to the director's chair after helming the first, and the dude's resume is pretty stellar, with X-Men: First Class (86%), Kick-Ass (75%) and Layer Cake (80%) being a few of the highlights. I suspect this latest keeps pace with the rest of his work.
