The latest entry in the Kingsman series hit the theaters Christmas weekend. With so many movies released at that time, this was one of those movies that flew under the radar.

Sadly, many people missed a grand entry into the Kingsman lore.

The King’s Man tells the story of Ralph Fiennes as Orlando Oxford and Harris Dickinson as his son, Conrad Oxford.

Orlando was a man who lived a violent past only to reform for his wife, Emily (Alexandra Maria Lara). Emily dies in an attack but, before she dies, tells Orlando to keep Conrad safe.

The action and adventure in The King’s Man were top-notch. The film drew me into its story and experience. And, it ended on such a poignant note.

Have you ever felt like an underdog? Were you picked last for sports or business? Sometimes we feel like no one wants us.

That’s how the football player Kurt Warner (Zachary Levi) felt.

He knew he was good. He knew he could play. Yet, the teams in the NFL didn’t want him.

American Underdog tells the story of Kurt Warner and how he went from a high school football player to a Hyvee stocking clerk to an arena football star to an NFL star while being at an age most would have considered too old.

American Underdog is a feel-good movie. It’s inspiring and uplifting. And, surprisingly, I have to recommend it even though I don’t typically like these types of movies.
