    I find it surprising that Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman prequel, The King's Man, is so much more grounded, which is to say less irreverent, than the first two films. In fact, we're hardly plunged into that absurdist world at all for the first half of the movie, and some audiences will resent that. Me? I bade my time through the slow first act, and simply enjoyed the cast at work creating the elements that would lead to the "secret service". I quite like this alternative take on history and how a SPECTRE-like group manipulated the world into World War I, which would have gone even more catastrophically without the proto-Kingsmen. Ralph Fiennes is a perfect actor to be make the footsteps people like Colin Firth will walk in "later", and his helpers are cool too (especially Djimon Hounsou). David Tennant isn't in it, but the actor playing the villain had me thinking he was because of the voice. The absurd historical touches, the dancing Rasputin fight, strong mountain goat action... that's all very fun, and I may be alone in this, but I like the less Millarish tone, which I often found distracting in the previous films even if they led to a more exciting experience. 1 year 8 months ago

    Can't say I loved it, but I enjoyed the different take on the franchise as well as the main plot points, and came out of it mostly satisfied. Three main things I disliked:

    -The villain and his motivations are weak as hell.

    -It claims it wants to explore the birth of Kingsman, but spoiler

    -spoiler In general, the whole alternative history angle was too simplistic, too angloamerican-centric, and too disrespectful to the complexities at play to feel anything but infuriating and insulting. Still, I cannot expect films to abide by my ideology, and if one can think of this as a fictional universe just vaguely inspired by real places, events, and historical figures, then the plot by itself is still intriguing enough.

    Not as good as the other parts. The first half was boring and I missed the humor and style. But Ralph Fiennes was great. 1 year 6 months ago
