War! What is it good for? Absolutely nothing, and a convenient plot for The King’s Man. As a prequel to our favorite film series about British gents running around in bespoke suits, a.k.a. Kingsman, this spy flick takes us back a century, where the world’s worst tyrants and criminal masterminds, lead by Rasputin, are planning to band together to kill millions of people across the world, all because, well, that’s sort of their thing. Our new hero to stop it all is a former army officer played by Ralph Fiennes, who guides a young recruit (Harris Dickinson) to be his backup. “Reputation is what people think of you,” he explains. “Character is what you are.” Though, if you can get a reputation as the guy who saved the planet, that’s pretty great too. The King’s Man, which also stars Gemma Arterton, Dijimon Hounsou and Tom Hollander, will be released on February 14.
