Movie Review: Johnny English Reborn

Saturday, October 15, 2011
Synopsis: 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. In the years since MI-7'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 KGB, CIA and even MI-7. With mere 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.

Directed by: Oliver Parker
U.S. Rating: PG

It's been a while since the first Johnny English was released. I couldn't say that I enjoyed that first one back in 2003, but it was one of those films that you can sit and watch on a boring Sunday afternoon.Never felt motivated to go and watch it on the big screen, just months after being released, got it on DVD. It didn't actually happened with this sequel, 8 years later. Johnny English Reborn is not quite better than the first one, but I must admit that made me laugh more than the first one, and actually get enough motivated to go and watch it on the theatre. Not the best comedy watched this year, but at least was goofy and funny enough to make me laugh a few times.

Jhonny English Reborn is just an old-fashioned British humor, an easy-to-watch film played by one unique actor (Rowan Atkinson), known worldwide as Mr. Bean, the goofy person with no dialogue making all kind of dumb things and getting into crazy funny situations. This time, Rowan Atkinson comes with a fresh, smoother and better-looking comedy, playing one more time the role of Jhonny English, the top secret British spy who's learning martial arts in Tibet as penance for an earlier disastrous mission. The MI7 - British Intelligence Agency (codenamed Toshiba British Intelligence) identifies him as the best agent for a new mission: stopping a group of international assassins before they kill the Chinese premier and cause global chaos. Now that the world needs him once again, Johnny English returns to his role with gusto. The adventure trying to stop this group of international assassins will make you have some really good laughs.

I would totally recommend it if you're looking for some good laughs watching a light and goofy comedy.

I would rate this movie with a 3.5/5
