The Kingsman franchise is one of excitement and insane gadgetry. It mixes the spy and espionage style of 007 with the outrageous and wacky style of Kick-Ass. After two films following young Eggsy and the gang, director Matthew Vaughn brings you a prequel of the agency and how they got their foot in the door in the face of war and destruction:
The film’s student and master roles will be filled by Ralph Fiennes and Harris Dickinson as the two race against the clock to prevent a war that may be the end of millions. They are joined by the likes of Djimon Hounsou, Stanley Tucci, Gemma Arterton, Daniel Brühl and Aaron Taylor-Johnson.
The film should be an interesting change of pace as well as a step back to the basics of what made the first film so special. While thoroughly entertaining, the sequel Kingsman: The Golden Circle took some heat from critics for its level of outrageous antics and story.
The King’s Man hits theaters February 14th, 2020.
