Review: Kingsman’s first mission hilariously blends rudeness with comic book style

Kingsman: First mission is one of many films whose premiere has been postponed due to the pandemic, but now, secondly, viewers can enjoy a well-crafted prequel to the spy story. It was filmed for the third time by Matthew Vaughn, who collaborated on a screenplay with Karel Gajdusek and Jane Goldman based on a comic by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons.

The prequel differs from the previous two films in many ways. It works with a global picture of the world, which opens with incidents from South Africa in 1902, and combines historical events and figures associated with the First World War and blends them with personal stories in which top acting done by British actor Ralph Fiennes v roli agenta oxforda, which showed she was in a fresh, well-deserved position for her, which gave her room to complete her already rich acting roster. She perfectly switches between fierce elegance and comedy in scenes that call for action, and her character also struggles with personal doubts and fears about son of Conrad

This is described by Harris Dickinson, an inconspicuous young man with a sharply cut face, but at the same time an angelic expression. Although the 25-year-old actor has had some decent collaborations, participation under Vaughn and, apart from Fiennes, looks enjoy. One of the most memorable sequences in the film is the scene where his Conrad meets a certain soldier Reid and shows that there is no room for jokes in war and everyone should be held accountable for the consequences of their decisions.

History in the shadow of criminals

However, the most significant in First mission excel without debate Rhys Ifans in the role of Rasputin. It could be argued that he, with his demonic depiction of a mad monk, stole most of the verbal battles and action scenes for himself. Also of interest is Tom Hollander, who honorably takes on the roles of three historical figures, Emperor William, King George and Tsar Nicholas, and gives them a touch of parody. As well as no credit for actress Gemma Arterton, who was a powerful mover of the entire Oxford household and partners, even in times when she didn’t have enough courage or lost her way. His character is the wise and well-organized head of a whole network of servants, who helps in obtaining information about the political and wartime status of the country.

Shown in the picture and other historical figureswhile some, however, are rightly embedded in the story and have an organic effect in them, the participation of others is a bit shrill and one can feel the gate opening to a potential continuation.

It also helps movies Ben Davis Dynamic Camera, especially if it is imaginatively attached to the fence rope. The soundtrack for the film, which Matthew Mageson collaborates with, supports the atmosphere of the story and works quickly. main musical motifthat every loyal viewer has experienced King. Unfortunately, the movie track on trickwhich deserves better visual processing, especially if viewers compare it to Vaughn’s previous work.

In addition to the new cast Kingsmanům my score some action scenes and distinctive dramatic moments. First mission he stumbles several times on the viewer’s feelings, right from the first moment, which is not delayed by the opening and surprises by the sudden action. This is represented mainly by realistic images of the trenches of the First World War, but also by comical-style fights, when it comes to movements or performances of actors who heroically solve situations and ensure their survival. Of particular interest to viewers are, for example, the fence scenes, where Rasputin actually dances or meets Conrad and five other soldiers with a group of enemies at night in the middle of the battlefield and their ensuing silent fight in long shots and perfectly choreographed.

This blends the real and raw world with fictional entertainment it does not lack intelligence and a clear interest in the subject. In addition to the Bonds influence, at the end of the film you can even feel the inspiration of Wes Anderson and his almost “ADHD” rush, with which the final plot is thrown at the audience.

Kingsman: First Mission (2022)

The first mission benefits from the success of the first and most unique film in the series. The current account of how the independent secret service was actually born is perhaps a little less crude, innovative, shocking, and less sexy than the Secret Service; but he was made up by the acting skills of Ralph Fiennes and the very funny character Rasputin, played by Rhyse Ifans. In short, the latest Kingsman is an excellent popcorn whip and perhaps a touch of a possible new offshoot of the popular series.
