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, one man must use every trick in his playbook to protect us all. For Johnny English, disaster may be an option, ... Written by Universal Pictures

Predictable, Boring, Unfunny - and Painful,
10 October 2012 | by (Salisbury, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Not quite sure why I bothered with this one - Rowan Atkinson (whose cameo in the Olympics opening ceremony I adored) is just an embarrassment, not only to himself, but also to James Bond as a franchise and to Britain generally.

I might have been having an off-day but a good comedy should have lifted that, not driven it to deeper depths of despair.

The aims - and nearly always resulting in misses - at every Bond stereotype, where I could almost have made a list from which was taken from which film are simply feeble and mixing in pseudo psycho nonsense about vortexes and other mumbo-jumbo just muddied it further.

Atkinson no longer has the physical dexterity to pull off the slapstick and his usual forte, vocal logistics are never fully realised, at least not in a clever way, which we all know he can do.

I'm not going to say avoid and all that, because that's a presumption that your tastes are the same as mine and they most probably aren't. It seems to be a popular movie and I'm glad that many enjoyed it. However, mild toothache is rather more appealing, for me, though the very final scene did raise half a smile, though...
