Matthew Vaughn’s “The King’s Man” had to go through numerous complications to finally reach its release date. Having been rescheduled for more than seven times, the movie ultimately hit the big screens on its eighth scheduled date i.e, 22 December 2021.

The King’s Man is the third installment of the Kingsman film series. This spy action comedy movie is a prequel to 2014’s Kingsman: The Secret Service and 2017’s Kingsman: The Golden Circle.

Having been rescheduled on various occasions, the movie had grasped the attention of the fans of the Kingsman film series. The last two movies had done well at the box office and had been acknowledged and liked by the viewers.

In the last two parts of the series, the director, Vaughn made his intentions of making it another James Bond movie very clear when he introduced Orlando Oxford, a character who clearly could have been Bond in an alternate universe.

Despite the movie having some remarkable action sequences, specifically that luxurious action sequence entangling Djimon Hounsou’s Shola and Rhys Ifans’ Rasputin, the movie wasn’t able to offer much to the audience.

One of the major shortcomings of the movie is that it is a total mess. It jumps between two different periods without rendering the proper support to any of them. Audiences find the scenes sequences completely erupted and they don’t appear to make smooth transitions from one emotion to another.

Throughout the movie, the director has tried too hard to make the scenes momentous. And it was making the dialogues awkward and compelled. The aforementioned installments had sharp dialogues and witty comebacks that blended with the characters as well as the timeline. But the current one is drastically lacking in this department.

Throughout these hardships, the only thing that made the movie somewhat manageable and plausible is its actors. Their acting is bang on and is doing its very best to make it tolerable.

Ralph Fiennes is distinguished for making his words sound like poetry and due to his tone, even prosaic sentences appear to be delicately composed by famous poets. And this quality of his has made the watchers stay instilled in the story Orlando Oxford.

Another actor who stole the show was Rhys Ifans. The actor played Rasputin and had upheld his posture throughout the show making his character perfectly balanced between crazy and cool.

Tom Hollander had also done his best in exhibiting the role of three cousins King George, Kaiser Wilhelm, and Tsar Nicholas.

Albeit having some of the greatest actors the movie still wasn’t able to convey what it wanted to. In the end, the scenes became hotchpotch. It was as if they were trying to say too many things at the same time that resulted in undermining the true point in the process.

Due to these reasons, the movie was rated 5.1/10 by Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic rated the film average by scoring it 44/100.

Its box office collection wasn’t much either. It suffered due to COVID-19 as well as having competition from Spider-Man: No Way Home.

Overall, the movie wasn’t able to offer anything mind-blowing to its enthusiasts.
