It’s an action-adventure movie with a bit of comedy thrown in – something for everyone.” Rhys Ifans as Grigori Rasputin said, “I play the most notorious man in Russian history who was brought down by his own hubris.

Why is The King’s Man movie worth watching?
The movie rather than depending too vigorously on crude humour and knockabout comedy, The King’s Man dominates at dry British mind; the Duke of Oxford (Ralph Fiennes) has numerous shrewd lines suggestive of British joke artist Stephen Fry. The movie also has clarity of cinematography in the fight scenes which is otherwise poor in other instalments. The King’s Man is a prequel to the movie Kingsman: The Secret Service. If you’re a fan of that movie, then you’ll definitely want to check out this one as well. The trailers make it look pretty good and I’m excited to see it!

Rotten Tomatoes reported an approval rating of 42% based on 165 reviews, with an average rating of 5.1/10.

Is something coming new?
Yes, there is. Talking to Collider, Vaughn teased the next film in the franchise, The Blue Blood. He said, “Eggsy and Harry [will be in it], obviously. But it’s the gang coming back together and it’s one of those moments that…when we wrote the screenplay, it was very much about, okay, I saw how people loved the relationship of Eggsy and Harry. So we just came up with this thing, what could be the ultimate reason for them to either fall in love or to hate each other forever? So that’s what this movie is all about is will they or won’t they, let’s just say.”
