The King’s Man (HBOMax)

In the early years of the 20th century, the Kingsman agency is formed to stand against a cabal plotting a war to wipe out millions.

A bloody mess of a movie, literally and figuratively. Darker than its predecessors, tried too hard. It wasn’t a fun action movie, which goes against the first two movies’ ambience. It’s ok, overall, but the contrast is overwhelming, IMO. Go with what works. That being said, the buildup to the first fight scene is ok. and that first fight scene is insane (which should have been the norm). They strayed. Give it a go if you are completionist, but other than that? Pass.
