The beginnings of the great war

The film in the first place mixes real events of history with fiction, revealing the murder of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria and his wife Sofía Chotek, in Sarajevo, an event that triggered in the First World War. Ralph Fiennes plays the Duke of Oxford, who after the death of his wife vows to protect the world and collaborates with the British crown on intelligence missions, first tries to unsuccessfully stop the explosion of the first great war and then stop it.

This installment of the Kingsman is much more serious than the two previous films, which however, thanks to Vaughn’s direction, maintains its visual aesthetic. Ralph Fiennes is superb as always, although if it is necessary to highlight the interpretation of one of the members of the cast, that would be, Rhys Ifans, who is incredible as Grigori Rasputin, the Russian mystic who was very influential in the last days of the Romanov dynasty.

As for the action, it is entertaining and intersperses warlike moments with a more classic spy story and without the modern gadgets of the typical spy movies like 007, or its two previous installments, which are already being developed today.

If you have to get a but it is that it is predictable, the main villain although he remains hidden throughout the film, in the end uses a resource as spent as hiding his face so that the viewer does not recognize him in the characters who have already appeared, as well as some events that are seen coming. Also, the fact of following some events that happened in reality lets you know what the outcome will be, which makes you miss the surprise factor at the end of the film, or a twist of the screw of the style Damn bastards.

In short a The King’s man: The First Mission, fans of the franchise will like that they will discover the beginnings of the agency, and some Easter eggs such as the mention of the Whiskey Statesman (the distillery that runs the independent intelligence agency in the United States in this universe); and leaves its ending open for a sequel, so we’re likely to see more adventures of the Duke of Oxford aka Arthur and his knights.
