The King's Man: The Kingsman prequel is a unfocused and confusing film

The third film in the Kingsman franchise, while featuring great action scenes and good performances, feels like three movies crammed into one making the film very unfocused and confusing. Matthew Vaughn tries to expand the Kingsman universe by showing us the story of how the Kingsman became the famed spy organization. Still, his direction and screenplay got shifted into autopilot that it got lost in focusing on the main story and took one strange detour that quickly turned into multiple detours. While impressive, the action scenes are shot and edited bizarrely. The saving grace in this movie is the ensemble cast's performances, particularly Ralph Fiennes. Also giving pretty good performances in the film include Gemma Arterton, Rhys Ifans, Harris Dickinson, Daniel Brühl, Matthew Goode, Charles Dance, and Djimon Hounsou. "The King's Man" may have some excitement, but Matthew Vaughn presents the story to us by throwing the script into a blender and assembling the pieces in the wrong places when creating this Kingsman prequel. This movie could have been a fun action film but instead comes off as one of the most unnecessary comic book prequels in recent years.
