Fun sequel to the surprisingly good original is equally engaging and ridiculous, continuing the adventures of the chav young man () who spies for the British operation masquerading as purveyors of fine menswear.  After a capricious drug dealer obsessed with retro-fifties Americana ( in fine, loopy form) devastates the British home office, Egerton and systems expert  head to the United States where the American equivalent of their department, headed by  in a bad toupee, provide support for their next mission. supplies a Texan counterpart to our hero and equals Strong as tech support as they head around the world, eventually landing in Moore’s Cambodian lair, to save the world of drug users from ultimate destruction.  Moore’s plan, in the grand tradition of mad villains in spy movies, is to kill hundreds of millions of people by putting a deadly disease in all the substances she supplies unless the American president () agrees to end the war on drugs and make her operation legal.  Most of it is ludicrous, and I’m quite frankly embarrassed for , but the hyperglamorous cast and action sequences make for delicious and refreshingly honest eye candy.
