Robbed of his birthright, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy - whether he likes it or not.
When their headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage, the Kingsman's journey leads them to the discovery of an allied spy organization in the United States. These two elite secret organizations must band together to defeat a common enemy.
An alternative version of the King Arthur legend. As a boy, Arthur is left orphaned after his father, King Uther Pendragon, and mother are killed in a war waged against them by Vortigern, who then assumes the throne. Arthur flees and is raised in a brothel, knowing very little of his birthright. Vortigern wants Arthur dead, to ensure there is no claimant to the throne. The legends foretell that only the next king will be able to draw Excalibur, Uther's sword, from the rock where it is lodged. So, in an effort to identify Arthur, Vortigern forces all the young men of Arthur's age to attempt to draw out the sword. Now it is Arthur's turn.Written by

When Vortigern goes into Catia's room toward the end of the film, one of the birds in the background is clearly a Rose-Breasted Cockatoo (commonly known as a Galah), which is only found in Australia. While everything in this film suggests some fantastical locations around Europe, there is no indication that any character has even been to Australia, much less traveled to collect a bird as a pet.

You've made quite a celebrity of yourself among the Blackleg ranks.
You've done very nicely on the back of your cozy relationship with your King's men.
I'm a little old for finger-wagging and speeches. So unless you're my dad, which... I believe is unlikely, can you just get around to telling me exactly what it is you want?

Nice new take on the King Arthur hero's journey. "Man must overcome losing father and find the king within." With a villain you can really hate, a hero you can identify with, and side characters you can love, be ready for a two-hour trip into a fantastical world.
Above all, the special effects make this movie. I saw it in 3D, and I was happy they kept the 3D effects in the "not cheesy" range. I'm happy it didn't trigger my motion sickness too.
This is definitely NOT a chick flick, but I'm not holding that against it. ;) The occasionally witty dialogue made for some enjoyable lighthearted moments, giving the comic relief a battle-intensive movie needs.
Overall, if you want to vicariously kick some ass, this is the movie for you. 😊
