Storyline

One year later, agent Cody Banks is back for another awesome adventure but this time he must track down a former instructor who's gone rogue with a mind-control microchip. Banks masquerades as a musical prodigy to get close to a snobby, egocentric scientist in London who's the only person who can make the microchip work. Along the way Banks hooks up with a demoted agent and a cute-as-a-bug Scotland Yard operative. When Agent Cody Banks heads to England to catch an evil scientist who's stolen a mind-control device for his plot to rule the world and turning the world leaders into zombies!

A lame and weak sequel that's strictly for kids
31 March 2005 | by christian123See all my reviews

Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London is a weak sequel and its strictly for kids. Cody Banks, the teen secret agent played by Frankie Muniz, returns with an undercover mission in London, posing as a boarding school student trying to stop a rogue agent who has stolen a mind-control device. With the help of his new handler (Anthony Anderson), Banks must stop the villain before he takes over the minds of the world leaders. The plot sounds like it can be an enjoyable family film but if your not a kid then you will probably hate it. The original was only average and this one is well below average. Frankie Muniz stars as Cody and he does a decent job but he is getting a little to old for this. His new sidekick is played by Anthony Anderson and he has some funny lines but most of the time his overacting becomes annoying. The last person worth mentioning is Hannah Spearritt of S Club 7. She's not really that good of an actress but she's a solid replacement for Hilary Duff. The absence of Hilary doesn't hurt the movie but its not like its benefiting from it either. Kevin Allen directs and for his first main movie he did an okay job. The material in this film is just so childish , which isn't a bad thing since it's a kid movie, but the writers don't even seem to attempt to entertain adults. The film is 100 minutes long so if your stuck watching this with your kids you might start to doze off. While the film is right for kids they are not bound to like it that much as my younger sister said it was kind of boring. If they had waited until 2005 to release this, then maybe they would have had time to write a better story instead of rushing through the entire production. Rating 3/10 an average film for kids and a bad one for adults.
