The King’s Man has hit theaters , and it can be said that this time the characters that appear, are far different when compared to the characters shown in Kingsman: The Secret Service (2014) and Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) , even though the director still remain Matthew Vaughn

If the main focus in Kingsman: The Secret Service is on the actions of Eggsy (Taron Egerton), who as a child was visited by Harry Hart (Colin Firth) when he told his father that he had died while serving in a spy organization. Eggsy undergoes a transformation into a “gentleman” against an enemy named Valentine (Samuel L Jackson) who threatens the survival of the entire world, and also brings him together with Crown Princess Tilde of Sweden (Hanna Alström).

So then the main focus on Kingsman: The Golden Circle, is reuniting Eggsy with Harry Hart, and also the big decision in his life to marry Crown Princess Tilde, which earned him a knighthood. And of course save the world from the threat of a drug cartel led by a vile woman, Poppy Adams (Julianne Moore).

This is different from The King’s Man which focuses more on telling the origins of the establishment of this secret service, as well as an explanation of why there is an associate of Kingsman in America named Statesman.

Comedy, it is also told that everything is actually a mere family matter, but because of rank and social position, this is everyone’s problem, and inevitably gets carried away in this conflict.

Through the timeline that makes The King’s Man a prequel to the two predecessor films, it will be very interesting to see where this franchise will take in the future. This prequel is the next step in Vaughn’s plan to build a Kingsman universe that includes a TV series and sequel Kingsman: The Golden Circle/Kingsman 3as well as a spin-off about the Statesmen.

The new characters in this film, starring Harris Dickinson, Daniel Bruhl as Erik Jan Hanussen, Rhys Ifans as Rasputin, Matthew Goode as Captain Morton, Djimon Hounsou as Shola, Gemma Arterton as Polly, Charles Dance as General Kitchener, Tom Hollander as George V/Wilhelm II/Nicholas II, Stanley Tucci and Ralph Fiennes who will fill the role of “mentor” named the Duke of Oxford as played by Colin Firth in the first Kingsman, and Dickinson

Handiwork franchise 20th Century Fox which is based on the comic book series The Secret Service by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons, going forward will open up even more new possibilities to explore .


But until now, overall it seems that the success of this franchise is still held by the original film, namely Kingsman: The Secret Service which managed to get a score above this film, so this raises a question mark whether the planned project will continue.

Of these three feature films, which one is the audience’s favourite? And which one is the reader’s choice? The King’s Man, still in theaters
