This weekend marks the return of Eggsy Unwin, international agent of intrigue, as Kingsman: The Golden Circle aims to please the world with its unique blend of bawdy humor and thrilling action. Naturally, a lot of readers have plans to see Matthew Vaughn's follow-up to Kingsman: The Secret Service, but what about after the movie? All of that spy action might leave you wanting more clandestine operations to watch from the comfort of your own home? Well, Netflix happens to have nine fantastic options of espionage, ranging from flat-out comedies to dead serious pot boilers. Here's our list of spy films that you can check out once you've returned home from the theater.

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy Gary Oldman holding court at The Circus

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

It seems like Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is one of those "best movies no one's ever seen." That statement is disappointing on two levels: first, and most importantly, this John Le Carre adaptation is one of the best to come out of the author's canon. The grim nature of Le Carre's spy games, as well as 1970's Europe, really shines through in this film, and in such a way that it benefits the story rather than just set the scene. But the second reason this film demands more eyes is, quite simply, it's an all star cast giving amazing performances, anchored by Gary Oldman's Oscar worthy (but sadly, not winning) performance as George Smiley. Watch this and weep that the future books in the series aren't being developed as sequels.

Johnny English Reborn

Were one to look up a list of franchises that have stealthily survived to the surprise of its audience, Johnny English would be one of those series. Just when you thought there'd never be a sequel, Johnny English Reborn came out of the blue to surprise everyone. The bigger surprise was just how much fun the sequel actually was, with a bigger scope of action and better spy-jinks given to Rowan Atkinson's titular spy in his second outing. The spy action holds up, and the bumbling is in top form, as Johnny English stumbles his way to saving the world again. And before you ask, yes, there's a third film in the works for next year.
