Storyline
Rowan Atkinson returns to the role of the accidental secret agent who doesn't know fear or danger in the comedy spy-thriller Johnny English Reborn. In his latest adventure, the most unlikely intelligence officer in Her Majesty's Secret Service must stop a group of international assassins before they eliminate a world leader and cause global chaos. In the years since MI-7's top spy vanished off the grid, he has been honing his unique skills in a remote region of Asia. But when his agency superiors learn of an attempt against the Chinese premier's life, they must hunt down the highly unorthodox agent. Now that the world needs him once again, Johnny English is back in action. With one shot at redemption, he must employ the latest in hi-tech gadgets to unravel a web of conspiracy that runs throughout the KGB, CIA and even MI-7. With mere days until a heads of state conference…

User Review

Zero Expectations

Rating: 8/10


A friend of mine warned me to go in with zero expectations. So I did. I
read a few reviews around the internet about the movie, going on about
how the audience weren't roaring with laughter.

Well that simply wasn't what I just been through. There was a scene or
two where the audience even started applauding!

Frankly speaking, this movie is a vast improvement over the first one,
with heightened unpredictability and more genuine gags.

I think what you'll have to remember, if you're gonna catch it, is that
Atkinson is best known for his slapstick (+silent) comedy, and not
hilarious lines like Adam Sandler.

If you're expecting a deep plot and clever dialogue, you won't find it
in this movie – though I must say that the move has gotten the balance
of plot, dialogue, and comedy, quite right.
