Ralph Fiennes isn’t usually known as an action hero but he’s leading an interesting cast of characters in The King’s Man.
The Oscar Nominee stars as Lord Oxford, a member of the British aristocracy, who is a witness to much of world history.
His son, Conrad, played by Harris Dickinson, has received a gentleman’s training in self-defense but longs to be part of the action- especially as what will later be known as World War I approaches.
Unbeknownst to the good guys- there is an equally bad guy who has assembled a team of diabolical allies including Rhys Ifans– (our favorite actor from Notting Hill!)- as the mad monk Rasputin.
As you probably guessed, The King’s Man is a prequel to the extremely popular Kingsman: The Secret Service (2014)– that film made more than 400 million dollars worldwide as did its follow-up Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017)
While this film has rewritten quite a bit of history and contains a lot of the cartoonish action of its forebears, it seems to have an anti-war and anti-violence message.
