Dueling Critics

thumbs-up

“The results may turn some ‘Kingsman’ fans off, but those willing to embrace this entry’s greater thematic and stylistic ambitions will find much to savor, including the stirring lead performance by Ralph Fiennes…The film ingeniously weaves in real-life events and characters, including three historical leaders.”
thumbs-up

“The ‘King’s Man’ wants to be a brief alternative history of the 20th century. It fails. But it does start to show from where that bum sex gag from the first film came…[An] ugly, heavy-handed, and po-faced self-pastiche…mirthless, dumb, and riddled with disturbing tonal changes.”
