Johnny English Reborn


"Rowan Atkinson returns to the role of the accidental secret agent who doesn’t know fear or danger in the comedy spy-thriller Johnny English Reborn.  In his latest adventure, 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"- Universal

My Talk:

Rowan Atkinson shows why he is one of the funniest buffoon in the film industry with gags that were timed well and perfectly, it is because of him that the film was not such a failure. He has some of the funniest and tickling expressions and gestures that people today will still laugh at.

The supporting cast was however below average as you can't feel much chemistry between them besides Agent Tucker- Johnny English's young but smart sidekick.

A plot to assassinate a certain world leader sounds a bit too cliche but it is of course the most typical story of any decent spy movie spoofing off the 007 franchise. The flaws and mistakes by Johnny English results in him being underestimated by his fellow men and because these unfortunate accidents (mostly due to his stupidity) Johnny is pit up against a fight to save his pride and to once again prove himself worthy to be a spy.

Explosions and Sound Tracks were decent and did not really put me much in awe as the movie is still very dependant on Johnny's stunts.

The ending was down right lame, from the point that i had to slap my self in the face with this
It's not the hero saves the day thing, it's the kiss before that.

There were some draggy scenes and i feel like they tried to much to make the show funny, too forceful.

Wrapping it up:
Probably the best family comedy to be watched by everyone because of the familiar faces of Rowan Atkinson who is also very well known as Mr Bean.

Rating: 2/5

Critic Mode:
"Funny but it did not deliver a continuous laugh out loud moment that it was intended to do but Rowan Atkinson still delivered and is still one of my favourite comedian of all time"-benjaminfoo of
