Viewers have blamed Kingsman’s new film for having a character with an “awful” Scottish accent.
“The King’s Man” is the third film in the franchise and serves as a prequel to Kingsman: The Secret Service of 2014 and Kingsman: The Golden Circle of 2017.
It was written by Mark Millar of Coatbridge and London-born Dave Gibbons, but although he has at least one Scottish creative on the team, he does not seem to have made a huge difference in terms of lingo.
The problem seems to be with the character played by Matthew Goode who adopts a Scottish accent for his role.
One fan wrote: “@KingsmanMovie what the hell is this horrible Scottish accent … no spoilers, but you know who I’m talking about … You could have saved a voice coach or something.”
Another added: “The Scottish accent in The Kingsman is a terrible lady.”
Another noted: “Not only is Kingsman’s new film an absolutely terrific film, but it has the worst Scottish accent ever committed to celluloid. So cringe.”
Another said: “I saw Kingsman start. The Scottish accent from ‘Baddie’ I do not know who plays the role because I deleted it, but the accent is murder.”
