White Mamba
27 March 2015 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Aka washed out Mamba. And by the way this is nothing like Johnny English. Because even when Rowan Atkinson is silly, in his "worst" moments as Johnny English, it never gets as low as this. Plus, while Christoph Maria Herbst is a good actor and always brings intensity to his roles, the same cannot be said of the rest of the cast. Our main character/actor may be a great comedian outside of film, but this can barely translate on screen, when the juvenile jokes misfire as often as his pistol does (if not even more often).

It's a bit uneven too. With the sexual attraction for example it tries to make fun of it, by not going that route (which is silly and not funny), just to change that towards the end and "doing" it. Which is not the worst thing happening here, but if you really dare find out for yourself
