So-so sequel with lots of adventures , noisy action , amusement and entertainment
18 January 2019 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Cody Banks (Frankie Muniz) is a friendly teen but he's really a CIA undercover agent . Nowadays , he goes back as the junior CIA Agent Cody Banks. Diaz (Keith Allen), Cody's CIA trainer at summer camp, robs a mind-control device from the CIA, and getaways to London. Cody is assigned by his chief (Keith David) for one dangerous mission . As Cody flies to London and goes undercover as a clarinet-playing prodigy at an elite music school. Cody must fool the other kids at the school while he pursues Diaz. Cody joins forces with another botcher CIA agent (Anthony Anderson) . Cody finds Diaz and must fight him for the mind-control device. Cody has to use everything he's learned to prove himself as a competent agent and stop Diaz from completing their mission . Save the world. Get the girl. Pass math. Adventure is an attitude.

The plot is a little bit ridiculous , but we're in a spoof comedy and it is narrated in fast-movement ; besides , abound the surprises , being very funny and bemusing . In the film there is suspense , comedy , emotion , action-packed , tongue-in-cheek and chases galore with impressive velocity pursuits . The screenplay is nicely developed as well as characters and the frenetic action united to excellent special effects that are varied of these too . From the beginning until the end the amusement and entertainment is continued . The humor moments are in charge of Frankie Muniz and Anthony Anderson with their abundant botches and goofs that happen when they must confront perils and risks against the villains . Including a thrilling and exciting final facing off between the protagonists and the baddies . It's a spoof of James Bond's films , there're even bizarre artifacts like in ¨007¨ movies , plus a role type ¨Q¨ , a weapon deliverer who teaches the various gadgets which Cody Banks will subsequently use . Sympathetic acting by Frankie Muniz as adolescent agent who is given the job of retrieving a twisted device, before it can be put to evil use. Support cast is pretty good , such as : Hannah Spearritt as a music student , who is really a British secret agent working on the same case , and Anthony Anderson as Cody's CIA handler in London who becomes a cook at the house of the musical benefactor . Furthermore , Cynthia Stevenson , Daniel Roebuck , Keith Allen, Anna Chancellor , James Faulkner , and the veteran David Kelly . And special mention to the habitual villain Santiago Segura , he is terrific as well as hilarious as a peculiar nasty person . Colorful cinematography by Denis Crossan ; filmed on location in London , Knebworth House, Stevenage, Hertfordshire, England, UK Cobham Hall, Kent, England, UK , Buckingham Palace , Canary Wharf Underground Station, Canary Wharf, Isle of Dogs, London, England, UK . Atmospheric and lively musical score by Mark Thomas .

This is a sequel to ¨Agent Cody Banks¨(2003) that directed Harald Zwart (One Night at McCool's , Commando Hamilton , Pink Panther 2) starred by Hilary Duff , Angie Harmon , Cynthia Stevenson , Arnold Vosloo , Keith David , Daniel Roebuck , Ian McShane. This second part motion picture titled ¨Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London¨ (original title) was regular but professionally by Kevin Allen (known for : Flat Lake ,The Big Tease, Under Milk Wood (2015), Y Syrcas (2013) and Spiceworld) . Rating: 5/10 , average but acceptable and passable .
