    Enough of the portrayal of our heritage as bad
    Anyone else had it up to here with the re writing of our past. We brought the Industrial Revolution to the world and ended slavery.

    I thought better of Vaughn guess I was wrong.

    Anyhoo if you can get passed 'the message' it's entertaining enough for an evening.

    God save the King!

    I'd don't have anything more to say but have to meet the character limit. So just think about what else you could be doing other than reading this.

    Set a plan in motion to get the girl/guy you really like. Or if you already have that already perhaps get into baking or carpentry. Maybe try a rave, rock concert or grime night.

    Good luck to you.

    What a dud.
    The first two Kingsmen movies were quirky, fun and did not take themselves too seriously. Everything was sort of "over the top" and that's what made them so entertaining.

    This prequel, The King's Man, took itself way too seriously. It started off slow and went downhill from there. It attempted to meld itself into real world history, from the Boer War up through World War I, coming up with fictitious causes behind real historic events. It did not do it very cleverly and was a bit muddled in the end.

    The relationship between Orlando Oxford and his son, Conrad, has none of the charm, camaraderie and banter that was found between Harry and Eggsy in the first two movies, and is rather depressing to watch, actually.

    Since this series of movies derives from a comic book series, let me sum it in these terms. The first two Kingsmen movies were Adam West and Burt Ward as Batman and Robin, while this clunker was Ben Affleck as Batman.
