Movie Reviews

  • the results may turn some Kingsman fans off, but those willing to embrace this entry's greater thematic and stylistic ambitions will find much to savor, including the stirring lead performance by Ralph Fiennes
    by Frank Scheck [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • the combo of larky spy-romp, father-son drama, and revisionist history is too much for Vaughn to balance and the film struggles to find a consistent tone; A blast at times, The King's Man could have sacrificed a fair chunk of plot for a bit more comedy
    3 of 5 by Olly Richards [Empire Magazine ]
  • spy romp origin story is a spectacular splurge of bad taste; Matthew Vaughn turns his reckless dad-humour energy to the first world war for a tongue-in-cheek history lesson with some surprising twists
    3 of 5 by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian ]
  • King's Man story twists are actually cleverly silly, incorporating bits of history and swirling them around; Ultimately, this film that's seemingly devoted to cleverness, action, and fun finally has too little of any of those to make it worth the effort
    2 of 5 by Jeffrey M. Anderson [Common Sense Media ]
  • it's a mess, purposeless, pointless, witless; "The King's Man" a mess in different ways. You can watch it for a full hour and still not have any idea where the story is heading, or what issues need to be resolved, or even what the point might be
    1 of 4 by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle ]
  • it seems more likely to confuse than entertain; This blend of serious war film, boys' own adventure and preposterous comedy has its moments, but it's a strange brew that ultimately falls a little flat
    by Anna Smith [Deadline ]
  • in the end, it's really just about wearing impeccably tailored suits; Though it has a healthy sense of humor about its own outlandishness, "King's Man" is impossibly silly and disposable nonetheless
    Review rate : C+ by Charles Bramesco [The Playlist ]
  • "The King's Man" rewinds things in terms of timeline, but continues to make the same mistakes as "The Golden Circle", cramming in so much unnecessary stuff that the film crumbles
    by Barry Hertz [Globe and Mail ]
  • "The King's Man" is an origin story that feels like a reboot; it flirts, at moments, with having a more restrained tone; [but] The film oscillates, rather awkwardly, between grandiose cartoon heroics and a kind of dutiful flatness
    by Owen Gleiberman [Variety ]
  • "The King's Man" is a joyless prequel to Kingsman, devoid of the charming offbeat comedy and pulse-pounding action scenes that made this franchise fun
    1.5 of 5 by Molly Freeman [ScreenRant ]
  • "The King's Man" gets lost in its own contradictions and confirms the absurdity of treating the global slaughterhouse and political furnace that was the Great War like a superhero movie
    Review rate : D+ by Christian Holub [Entertainment Weekly ]
