Storyline

Johnny English, the accidental secret agent who doesn't know fear or danger and 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 MI7'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 K.G.B., C.I.A., and even MI7. With a mere few 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, but failure never is.

User Reviews

 
Mr. Bean turned spy. Good fun!
21 February 2020 | by MR_HeracliusSee all my reviews

Johnny must redeem himself in a plot against the Chinese Premier. He's back and Johnny English Reborn is actually one of those sequels that outshines the original. While he's older and much of the comedy still is at it's very basic, Mr Bean as a spy, it works a lot better in this film. The plot seems simpler, the idiocy seems to be kept more 'in-check' and it just made the film that bit more enjoyable rather than annoying.
