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

Someone please help me here.....
12 October 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

OK, can someone please help me understand why this film is getting 10 out of 10's? Im sorry, but I was a big fan of the first Johhny English. Without being too cynical, I thought it was good fun and gave you a few laughs, but I wasn't too sure whether there would be a sequel or not. Surprise surprise there wasn't and that was fine, they left it and it still stands well a few years on. However when Johhny English was announced this year, one thing popped into my mind ' oh great, Hollywood are cashing in again' just like on all the other sequels and remakes they've done year's after the originals. Now don't get me wrong there are some really good things about this movie. Firstly, some of the humour is very good: the meeting scene with the chair, the first meeting with the head of the spy organisation, some of the party scenes with the mistaken old lady and the fight scene with the man who uses loads of stunts to run from Johhny, whereas Rowan Atkinson just casually chases him using amusing stunts.

However, even these scenes aren't as funny as they should be. The chase scene near the beginning just isn't as good as it should be, it seems to lack atmosphere and gets very tedious. Now let's get to some of the things that are bad about this movie. The plot is just....ridiculous at times. Brain control, OK fair enough it's been done but it's original, but hte fact that Johhny English can resist it at the end....one of the strongest mind control drugs in existence according to the movie and he can just go against it...OK right. The spontaneous romance with the blonde, which goes nowhere and is just so pointless. No indication is given towards it until Johhny runs to her flat after he is being pursued by the MI6. Some of the acting is very flat too. Agent tucker, is funny in parts, but he lacks charisma and doesn't seem to have much of a funny side character to accomplice Johhny. Not like Bough who combined well with Johhny in the first movie....and talking of Bough, he's listed in the cast, but I don't recall him in the movie. Unless he had a cameo which I missed.

Overall, this film is very flat and dull. Granted the humour is good at points, and some of the special effects are fun, but more often than not you're given boring dialogue, ridiculous story with many plot holes and flat acting that is uninspired and just not humorous. I think a 4/10 is well deserved for a film which I was looking forward to, but left me disappointed.
