It shouldn't surprise you that "The King's Man" isn't the new best in the franchise, but you might very well be startled by this prequel's more dramatic and restrained tone with less gratuitous violence and more thoughtful commentary on violence.

I can imagine Ralph Fiennes being handed the script for the first time. I can see it now. I can see the script mailed to him in a letter package, and he takes it to his study, sitting down comfortably in his chair that creaks loudly every time you move a muscle, placing the script neatly on his Shakespearean-like writing desk, lit only by candles to give it an atmosphere, with a lovely red-hot green tea by his side, as he puts on his reading glasses. He reads the script carefully until he gets to the part where his character has his leg sucked off by Rasputin and his character moans loudly.

There's a fun hundred minute action movie that is stretched into 130 minutes really for …

Can the Kingsman series grow up? The first two entries in the series: Kingsman: The Secret Service and Kingsman: The Golden Circle were both action-heavy but also had plenty of tongue-in-cheek humor across the board. Surprisingly, The King's Man takes a more serious tone, which may lead some people to be disappointed but, overall, makes for a much more impactful film - that still delivers plenty of action.
The King's Man stands out for incorporating historical figures and events into its narrative. Ralph Fiennes plays Orlando Oxford, duke and, after an opening-scene tragedy, a man who desires peace - and protecting his son, Conrad (Harris Dickinson) above all else. He has a close friendship with military man Kitchener (Charles Dance) - based on a real-life figure and watches as the …
