Review: The King’s Man Home Video Release

The King’s ManThe King's Man has arrived on home video in various digital and disc formats. This film is the third in the Kingsman series. It takes place during World War I and chronicles the origins story of the Kingsman. The home video release features a full length documentary and a couple of featurettes. For more on the technical specs and offerings of this initial home video release see the press release at the end of this post.

I was sent the Blu-Ray/Digtial Code combo to review. The primary bonus material is a feature length documentary entitled: The King’s Man: The Great Game Begins Documentary. This approximately 90 minute offering is broken up into six parts looking at various aspects of the film including the story, cast, creating the sets/locations, the stunts and spy tech, music and sound. There is a 15 minute look at the No Man’s Land sequence. And to round out the bonus features is a 26 minute piece looking at organizations that help out military veterans in Britain.

I enjoy traditional “making of” bonus material and found the documentary included in this offering to be right on target with what you would expect to be chronicled in the production of a movie. There is a breath and depth to the documentary not found on most releases. This would be a primary reason to look at adding the King’s Man home video release to your personal library.
