What parents need to know
Parents need to know that The King's Man is a prequel to 2014's Kingsman: The Secret Service and 2017's Kingsman: The Golden Circle. Like those two films, this third installment looks to be a wry, if extremely violent, take on the spy genre, with over-the-top combat and story elements. This one is set in the early 20th century, when the Kingsman spy agency is first formed to take down a collective clan of villains. There are lots of adversaries, including some inspired by real-life historical figures, like Rasputin. Though the gratuitous violence looks to be purposely sensationalized/played for effect, it's still likely to include lots of blood, graphic injuries, and deaths. There may also be some sexual material.
