The King's Man

Action Adventure Thriller


The origin story of the Kingsman agency.

"The King's Man" doesn't know what kind of film it wants to be. We're given a war film, a family drama with a touch of romance; and even with all of these genres combined, the production still lacks the panache of the first two instalments in the franchise. The plot unfolds in an unnatural, stilted way, with haphazardly placed flashbacks breaking up the progression of the plot. This awkwardness is further punctuated by odd music choices that take away from what is unfolding on the screen. An unnecessary addition to the franchise. Yes, my shepherd.
