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.

Did You Know?

Trivia

The writers had decided not to bring back Bough (Ben Miller), English's sidekick from Johnny English (2003) and decided to replace him with new character Agent Tucker (Daniel Kaluuya). Miller did film a cameo, to link the two movies together, but was cut. See more »

Goofs

During the aerial shot before the MI7 meeting in London, the wording to the bottom right of the "camera" screen says "GEOCACHING". Geocaching is a hobby using GPS to find hidden items, not something which should be on this sort of camera readout. See more »

User Reviews

An amazing movie with little clichés and almost none of the usually expected slapstick
13 September 2011 | by rmathur15See all my reviews

Johnny English 2 is fantastic. I watched it before it came out and I have to say, once it comes out everyone MUST go see it. It is not a total slapstick, childishly funny comedy. Quite the contrary; Johnny English Reborn is an amazing movie that entertains all ages. My mother was in hysterics at some points in the movie. I highly recommend this to everyone and anyone. The plot is not the simplest but not the hardest to follow either. There are many funny moments, many of which are in the trailer. The action is very...active. There is no gore or excessive blood. Most of the deaths are portrayed humorously and have funny sides. My positive review comes with one warning. Be EXTREMELY careful, no matter who you are with, where you are watching it, or when you are watching it, as this movie may cause excessive laughter. :) Enjoy.
