Movie Review: The King’s Man

The King’s Man

The King’s Man is the third installment of The Kingsman series. This third movie is a prequel to the first 2 Kingsman movies. The King’s Man is set in the World War I era and gives a backstory of how The Kingsman Secret Service agency came about. Unlike the previous two installments; this movie isn’t so much about flashy gadgets but it’s still very much innovative for the setting. But is it worth the watch?

The King’s Man sure is an incredible period action movie. It is definitely the most sentimental of all the other movies of this franchise. Not just how rich men and lords of the past try to take matters into their own hands by creating this spy agency, but it’s also about family and doing right by their name. It’s also about finding yourself yet also being disillusioned by ideals.

It’s also an exciting take on grounding the agency origins, as it sets in a true historical world event and not a potential history-altering evil tech genius and drug cartel leader. Makes the movie still fun and exciting with their well-choreographed over the top fight scenes, this time incorporating Russian Ballet.

Callbacks and easter eggs

All the characters having their own charm and some comedic relief it definitely keeps the film fun and exciting. The absurd evil hideouts and the innovation to overcome these hideouts. There are of course Easter eggs and references to the past 2 movies.

This movie tells us why the parachute training was important from the first movie; and the American president drinking Statesman whisky in reference to the Statesman agency from the second movie. Don’t forget to stay a while once the movie is over and catch the end credits scene. It sure did excite people that caught it.

If you want to have a great time watching an action-packed film that doesn’t seem to force the action with a lot of heartfelt moments, go and watch this movie! Then maybe after re-watch the first and second Kingsman movies too and see how technology has made leaps and bounds in their spy world a century later.
