“The King’s Man” is the third installment of the “Kingsman” film franchise, which is based on a comic book called “The Secret Service” by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons. That fact is actually quite evident while watching.
Like some, you may be asking why this classic was remade. Why would one of, irrefutably, the best directors of all time put his heart and soul into a remake when he could have given us an original film?! What on earth can Steven Spielberg give to or do for this film that wasn’t already done? I have been in your shoes. I wondered the exact same thing. Why touch “West Side Story?!” Makes no sense, right? I never saw the original, so I was coming from that angle, too. I thought, goodness gracious, another one?!
Then I saw it.

Here’s what was going on in my mind while I was viewing this fun, animated film. As you might, as well, I couldn’t help but think to myself that “Ron’s Gone Wrong” is a precursor of what’s to come. It was made to get us used to the idea that the movie we’re watching is actually the next generation phone on the way. It’s an ad! Okay, maybe not, but after they watch, every child will want a Ron, a “Bubble Bot” (B-Bot for short) of their own.
