It’s an odd universe that super spy and everyday pom Eggsy (Taron Egerton) had returned to.

The High Note Movie Review
Maggie is good at her job but dreams of more. She secretly wants to be a record producer and has the musical smarts and sensitivity to do just that. The banter between the players shows that the writer, Flora Greeson has a good working knowledge (or good advisers) of the minutia of soul music and this attention to detail is fun for fans of that genre of music. Her grasp of personal dynamics is less sure.
The musical interactions between players are satisfying and ...

The story simplified to its core element is just a soon to be buddies road movie and almost all the characters are comic ...
