The King’s Man is a 2021 action-adventure spy film about the first intelligence agency in the early years of the 20th century; together they must stand against a cabal plotting a global war to wipe out millions.

The film serves as a prequel to Kingsman: The Secret Service (2014) and Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) both directed by Matthew Vaughn.

Directed by Matthew Vaughn (Argylle; X-Men: First Class; Layer Cake) from a screenplay co-written with Karl Gajdusek, based on Vaughn’s story and the comic book The Secret Service by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons.


As a collection of history’s worst tyrants and criminal masterminds gather to plot a war to wipe out millions, one man and his protégé must race against time to stop them…


The King’s Man is a wonderful, surprising triumph, its climax leading to the proper formation of Oxford’s Kingsman Organisation itself and the enticing mid-credits promise of a sequel that poor box office might well have put paid to. But to be honest, we’d rather see more of this iteration of the Kingsman than another loud and laddish outing for Taron Egerton’s Eggsy and crew.” Starburst
